AH PA TOFU RESTAURANT, HANZHONG STREET, TAIPEI CITY

Recently opened about three months ago, and just a stone's throw away from Ximen station, this modest looking restaurant specializes in dessert soyabean pudding and soya drinks, as well as other delicious Taiwanese small dishes.
 It's a small shop with only six tables inside, and two tables outside on the five-foot walkway.
The owner of the shop was very friendly and he recommended the dishes that we should order based on our preferences. 
The menu was once again in Chinese, so I left the ordering to my dad and went with the shop owner's recommendations.

 

Tofu with seaweed and beansprouts

Stir-fried mince pork with steamed rice
 
'yi' noodles with mince pork

Iceberg lettuce

Pork ball soup

Cold beancurd with century egg
 
Dried squid in a starchy soup base

And of course we also had to try their beancurd jelly dessert (douhua 豆花), or dau fu fa as I am used to calling it. It comes with two different toppings, so we ordered one of each.

Douhua with peanuts

Douhua with red beans



After eating mainly takeaway street-food for the past few days, it was nice to have a simple traditional sit-down meal.
I also ordered a hot soya bean drink to takeaway after the meal - my cough seems to have worsened, and I am now temporarily banned from having iced bubbletea (boo...).
The bill came up to which was a reasonable price NT$330, which is approximately RM35.50 (or £6.50 - bargain!) 
Our final meal in Taiwan before we departed the next day. Hopefully this new business will continue to blossom in the competitive food industry.

Address: Hanzhong Street, Wanhua District, Taipei City, Taiwan (opposite 85 degree cafe)
