This kind of “tofu pudding” is less traditional but in my opinion, far more delicious. For 40 NT (just over a dollar US), you can enjoy a bowl of  douhua and three toppings of your choice just outside of National Chengchi University’s main gate.

In the summer, I love douhua served chilled and topped with green beans, fruit, coconut jelly, aiyu (lemon jelly), or xiancao (grass jelly); and then in the winter, served warm with red beans, soft-boiled peanuts, and chewy flecks of oatmeal. Always drizzled with a little syrup, sometimes floating in doujiang, soy milk. A most flexible dessert.
