After a most satisfying big feast, we definitely needed to walk the calories off.
So we just walked along the area and chanced upon 晴光市場 Qingguan Market. This is a local market with food stalls in the open and daily necessities in the shops in the alleys, and I somewhat found it to be strikingly familiar to the one which we went in 2009 when we were in Taipei to shoot for our wedding.
We were walking and shopping along the many alleys when we past by this red bean biscuit stall. I didn’t notice the queue until wifey pointed to me that the queue had snaked into a small alley! 排隊美食 famous queue-ing snacks alert (although I must admit at that time, I had totally no idea this was famous)!
We didn’t join the queue because we were still very full from the big lunch earlier on, so we just walked on to other parts of the market. After a few turns (and a visit to the washroom), our stomachs were sufficiently emptied to share a piece of biscuit!
Wifey queued while I went to the front to observe and snap pictures. There were 3 flavours, 紅豆 Red Bean, 奶油 Custard and 蘿蔔絲 Raddish (which was already ran-out). We got ourselves a freshly-made 奶油紅豆餅 Custard Biscuit for only NT10 (~S$0.42)!
The filling was incredibly overflowing and not overly sweet. We do not like overly sweet stuff so this was just nice for us. The skin was crispy and the combination was just heavenly. We left the stall fully satisfied!
