Our Taipei Gu Gong historical visit ends with a quick meal inside a restaurant where we have a delicious bowl of Dou Hua. It’s the first time we having dessert kind of snack recipe in Taiwan and the overall Dou Hua taste experience was a pleasant one.
Dou Fu Hua (豆腐花) or also known as Dou Hua (豆花) is a Chinese dessert made with an extra soft form of tofu.
In Taiwanese cuisine, Dou Hua is served with sweet toppings like cooked peanuts, adzuki beans, cooked oatmeal, tapioca, mung beans and a syrup flavored with ginger or almond.
Different country has different culture on how to make Dou Hua. In Malaysia, we used to have plain Dou Hua snack which was served with Gula Melaka 😀
Anyway, it is quite delightful to have a cold dessert snack after long hour walk in Gu Gong (故宫) building.
Best Dou Hua Recipe
We ordered the Dou Hua as seen in the picture from the restaurant name Xian Ju Fu (闲居赋).
The snack name is 传统豆花 which means ‘Traditional Dou Hua’ and cost us 60NTD per bowl.
So what is the side ingredient recipe hidden under this tasty Dou Hua? The answer is the cool combination recipe of peanut (花生), candied lotus seed (莲子) and runner bean (花豆).
Crunchy peanut and chewy lotus seed along side with the smooth Dou Hua makes our day great with excellent taste.
Kudos~ I will eat the same bowl of cool and tasty Dou Hua when visit back Taipei next trip 😀
