Fujian-style Clay Oven Rolls
Visiting wartime tunnels, staying at traditional architecture, appreciating magnificent western buildings, all of which are places that attract foreign visitors. But clay oven roll a�� a popular breakfast choice among locals, is a must-try traditional delicacy.
The signboards on Jinsha Old Street are orderly and characteristic. The old names of shops can still be seen, such as the fabric store, the business storea��etc. Whata��s a shame it that only a few stores are still operating. The shop that makes these clay oven rolls is also located on this street. It is highly advised that those who come for the clay oven rolls here take a stroll up and down the street to experience the feeling of the old times.
Kinmena��s clay oven rolls are not famed for diversity. The most famous shops sell only two flavors: sweet clay oven rolls and salty clay oven rolls. Fujian-stylea��s clay oven rolls smell spectacular when they just got out of the oven. Both sweet and salty flavors taste fabulous. The salty one is round-shaped, with fillings made with Kinmen pork, bead onions, and Chinese medicine. Those rectangular-shaped are sweet rolls, made with a secret recipe involving mainly fine sugar and are vegetarian-friendly. Each roll is sold at NT$12, and ten rolls come with a box, making it super convenient.
Fujian-stylea��s clay oven rolls look thicker than regular rolls and taste extremely enjoyable when you bite into them. The salty flavored ones have more fillings, with clear layers and better texture. The sweet ones are crispy and scented. You can taste the sugary particles in the fillings but are not too sweet. They are one of the inexpensive and fine specialties of Kinmen.
