Taiyi Milk King 臺一牛奶大王

Anchor point
No.82, Sec. 3, Xinsheng S. Rd., Da'an Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C


During autumn there’s also a rice dumpling. Each one is so fully stuffed, so big that it can’t even fit on a spoon. The skin is chewy and the stuffing is rich. No matter whether it’s the salty pork rice-dumplings, sesame rice-dumplings or peanut rice-dumplings etc, the level of saltiness and sweetness is made to perfection, which is why business is always so good. Especially during the Lantern festival season, there’s always a long line in front of the store.

No matter whether it’s Taiyi Milk King’s shaved-ice products or rice-dumplings, they are all very popular. Taiyi Milk King always has something delicious to eat throughout the year.


Right across from National Taiwan University, an honored store with a great history, for many years, it has left great memories for people who went to NTU. When classes are over, there were always groups of friends who come here after class to have some shaved-ice and share their wonderful youth.

All the bean ingredients were hand-made by the owner, not only is there a wide variety of condiments for you to choose, the quantity is huge too. The red bean ice with milk is the most popular product of the store; the milk is thick and creamy and the whole thing is fully covered with soft red beans. There’s also the chocolate pudding ice with milk; the pudding is smooth and tender, the chocolate is rich and thick; it’s an excellent combination of fragrance and taste!

    Really good desserts


    If you already eat dinner and go to this place just for a dessert, you should not order a whole bowl for yourself. It is quite much and so good you can't stop if you are totally full. So the only possible solution is to share one bowl.

    Always the best place to go, for summer or for winter


    Go to regularly since I was a student. Same taste which brings back good memories all the time.

    Piles of shaved ice


    This is a popular shaved ice place near the National Taiwan University campus with a variety of milk custard on top of huge pile of shaved ice. We made the mistake ordering way too much. One for a family of four is plenty but we had three! Quality wise so so.

    Try all the classics


    Have tried the shaved ice and douhua. Douhua was standard. Shaved ice comes in very generous portions. Ice cold, sticky sweet goodness for the summer. Good place to try the classics of shaved ice; with red bean or with mango etc.

    Best shaved ice and red bean soup!


    I went to National Taiwan University so I have known this famous restaurant for a long time. Even now I have lived in US for many years, every time I come home to visit family, I always stop by here for their famous shaved ice dessert in the summer and red beans soup in the winter. They are so tasty and so cheap for such quality snack! They are the best I have ever eaten and I highly recommend it.
