I don't know, but I had an immediate affinity for Yong He - they serve freshly made breafkast food deep into the night. It didn't hurt that I was fighting jetlag and losing - breakfast at night was making perfect sense. What you see below is an amazing concoction - it's a thin egg and scallion crepe wrapped around two deep-fried dough sticks. If I'm not mistaken (and I easily could be) that would be a dan bing wrapped around two you tiao. Someone from Taiwan, help me out with my probably poor interpretation, please.
Any great place knows to make the food as close to the sidewalk as possible - make a little show of it. This is what you see walking past Yong He. A whole crew kneading and cutting dough and frying you tiao. That's all this wannabe reporter needs to see. Things like this always stop me dead in my tracks. They fry their you tiao a bit extra. When I bit down they crunched and crackled audibly, making this jetlag breakfast sandwich extra special.
