臺一牛奶大王 is one of the popular dessert joints for young and old. 臺一牛奶大王 (Tai Yi Niu Nai Da Wang) translates as Taiwan's best Milk King. It sells both hot and cold winter desserts that has many customers queuing.
The dining experience costs us around TWD80. The desserts were very similar to the local's Ice Kachang. Instead of using evaporated milk which is less sweet, the shop uses a generous amount of condensed milk which was extremely sweet. I personally think that this dessert is forgettable.
Green Bean and Grass Jelly Over Milk Shaved Ice (绿豆仙草牛奶冰) (above) - in simple words was made of shaved ice topped with green beans and grass jelly, and finally drizzled with condensed milk. This I a very sweet dessert. The saving grace was the nice texture of the grass jelly. It tasted better when the ice melted and diluted the ultra sweet condensed milk. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
Red Bean over Milk Shaved Ice (红豆牛奶冰）was the other dessert we'd ordered. Similiar to the first, it was very sweet. The red bean was mushy and it was not as good as the first. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
