    Wow, haven’t had a Taiwanese breakfast in the longest time! Thanks for the great photos.

    Yay! I love me some Taiwanese breakfast/snacks! Scallion pancakes are fantastic, and who doesn’t love an occasional dumpling? Never tried You Tiao in stick rice before though. Maybe someday! :) x

    Hellz yeah! Thanks for the tip. Gotta head down to Irvine for some breakfast. Haven’t had this since my last visit to Taipei.

    OMG, your mom is SO cute!!! I love those little papers you get to fill out at Taiwanese restaurants…so fun. Your breakfast looks so yummy. Anything bread-y or doughy is perfect for Saturdays…let’s be honest.

    Xo,
