After eating at the assorted organs place, afterwards I saw one of those little fried doughnut stands I like to check out from time to time. Normally you will see a little stand with all different kinds of fried sweet stuff like doughnuts or snacks that look a bit like pastry.
The doughnuts and all the other snacks made at these stands are all a traditional way of having them. Fried, fried again, and then fried some more. The doughnuts are quite different to American styled doughnuts. If they are done well the fact that they are fried makes them crispy on the outside, and they are especially good when they first come out the fryer. Taiwanese doughnuts seem to be more crispy than American ones.
So the missus told me not to try the one next to the organs shop as she knew a much better one which was near by. So out came her phone and the glorious Google map and off we went. It took a little bit of going round in circles to find it but we managed to get there in the end.
When we parked and waddled over to the shop there was already a load of people there queuing. Then some kind of mad dash happened. The shop has all different flavours of doughnuts. They are typical flavours you would expect in Taiwan, red bean, cream, chocolate, taro, peanuts...all the usual flavours they add to sweet stuff here.
As I was busy taking photos suddenly loads of people just started barging through me, the missus and the line leaving all their manners behind. This was because I found out the shop only only brings out freshly made doughnuts at certain points in the day. Due to these mannerless bastards we missed out on trying other flavours of the doughnuts and only managed to get plain ones.
They bring out the freshly made doughnuts at 11:30, 14:00 and 16:00. These are the times when you can get the special flavours, but you must be quick and prepared to fight through people to get them. They still have normal ones all day.
The normal ones we had were very good, I think they are currently the best Taiwanese doughnuts I have had since I have been in Taiwan. If your a doughnut fan you should check them out for sure. My thoughts were because it is so busy they have to make them fresh all the time. This means they won't be lying around waiting for some sucker to come and buy them. We all know stuff like this is best when it is fresh out of the oven/fryer, or in this case the fryer. Enjoy!
