Red bean soup is one of the popular Chinese sweet dessert soup made with azuki beans. The recipe is kinda similar to Japanese Shiruko version served in a bowl with mochi but the soup is commonly thinner.
Today we continue our snack marathon in Jiu Fen, Taipei and we walk into a shop name Jiu Fen Bai Mei Yu Yuan Zhuan Mai Dian (九份白梅芋圆专卖店).
I know it’s too early for a dessert in the snack marathon but I couldn’t resist myself to order one bowl of colourful red bean soup.
