最酥脆的蛋餅在山豬蛋餅|The Crunchiest Danbing in Taipei – Wild Boar Danbing

臺灣蛋餅可大致分為兩派,溫柔的軟Q蛋餅與俏皮的酥脆蛋餅,多數早餐店大都是軟麵、粉漿蛋餅,口感偏嫩,有些因為加了粉漿的關係,會有類似腸粉的Q彈。另一派的蛋餅特色則是焦香脆的虎皮蛋餅,餅皮扎實、略帶甜味,類似於蔥抓餅,酥脆的外皮是最大特色。

坐落在晴光市場的「山豬蛋餅」,賣點不在於用油桿製出的酥,而是以獨特的煎製手法和工具,加上口味的客製化,從煙燻鴨賞到墨西哥辣椒,九層塔香腸到德式香腸,讓蛋餅不只有酥脆,也給味蕾環遊一下世界

Danbing is often so different across breakfast shops that it’s hard to know just what a danbing is. This lovely breakfast food can be soft, hard, crunchy, or gooey. It can be a challenge to find the danbing that suits your taste buds. The good news today is that we’ve you covered if you’re looking for the best crunchy danbing in Taipei – Wild Boar Danbing.

Nestled in Qingguang market (晴光市場), the shop stands out with its lively music, decorations, and mostly importantly, its welcoming owners! It’s refreshing to see people that are passionate about the food they make, and to actively ask you how you’d like your food to be, and not simply tell you how it’ll be.

This danbing breakfast shop definitely stands out from almost anywhere else in Taipei, and if you’re interested in treating yourself, you should go check it out.

The Wild Boar Danbing – Attention to detail |山豬蛋餅的TLC

Wild Boar Danbing

捨棄掉工業化的複製效率,山豬蛋餅提供的更細緻。煎台一次大約容納兩到四個餅皮,壓煎的技巧著重力道和時間的掌握,山豬蛋餅的煎檯哲學是讓餅皮從Q滑變成香脆,但又不至於焦黑,蛋皮和餅皮無縫隙的煎和,煎檯上也有炒料的一角,洋蔥、青蔥在和香腸一起熱炒之後,帶出甜和辛,蔥類的甜,柔和辛香,台式香腸本身也帶有恰到好處的甜,醃漬的香料味也讓這炒料更具層次。

把炒料和煎製好的餅皮放一塊,進行到蛋餅的重頭戲「捲」,尤其不能破壞壓煎好的酥,而捲好的蛋餅不只切開上菜了事,山豬蛋餅的擺盤也和一般早餐店很不一樣,紫洋蔥、香菜、九層塔、紅蘿蔔或是芝麻粒,口感一絕,視覺也帶來更多絕。

It’s very rare to see such attention to detail and presentation for danbing, or for any morning market food in Taiwan. While New York-based Taiwanese restaurants have the reputation of making Taiwanese breakfast food both expensive and presentable, Wild Boar Danbing has both the presentation and flavor covered. They also don’t leave you wondering if you paid too much.

 

這裡的蛋餅口味排列組合可以超過30種,拔絲起司可以從你的唇拉到曖昧對象的心裡去,墨西哥辣椒的香就算你遠在墨西哥也聞得到,九層塔鴨賞就如同海豚之於海相配,嫩蛋花生培根就是你想要解放褲子鈕扣時吃的。配料的選擇都是任客官搭配,就算是你阿嬤大概也不會讓你這麼任性選配料。

This breakfast shop has a wide variety of danbing, starting at NT$65 each. I can personally vouch that their jalapenos danbing is probably the spiciest one in Taipei. I’m a pasty Irishman, so try it for yourself and see if it’s actually spicy and let me know.

I’d also recommend their Taiwanese sausage Danbing, Pork Danbing, and their Duck Danbing. The best part, they all come with basil!

這裡不是美X美或是麥X勞,一點點的耐心可以換來的是充滿用心的蛋餅,搭配最酥香的餅皮。美食的料理其實是很花時間的,只有2個人的山豬蛋餅,卻可以帶來連鎖餐飲沒有的驚艷,在沒有空調的料理台,仍然耐心地製作每一份蛋餅和捲料,呈盤的細節,仍然不會因為客人一多而馬虎。單價以一般早餐蛋餅來看或許稍高,但這些給予的比一般早餐蛋餅,高出許多。

吃食不應該只求飽,吃食也應該要滋養你。

味道的平衡,視覺的呈現,用心的烹煮。在山豬蛋餅,擺脫千篇一律的重複,點一份驚喜。

These danbings are the crunchiest around, and what really makes them stand out are their ingredients, and their attention to detail when cooking.

This isn’t a McDonalds grill. This is two amazing people making three danbings at a time. They clean and prepare all their ingredients on the spot, press the danbings to be super crispy, and clean everything once they’re finished to make sure the next danbing is just as good.

If you want something quick, simple, and easy, go somewhere else. If you want danbing with care and attention, go to Wild Boar Danbing. If you’re not crazy about the idea of waiting around, then hey, the good news is you’re in a market and can get some fresh juice from around the corner, or check out a little ama’s shop of clothes and trinkets while you wait

Where is Wild Boar Danbing?

Depending on when you visit Wild Boar Danbing, they might be swamped or not too busy. Generally, on weekends, they are a bit busy. The good news is, they’re looking to change location to have a better storefront and environment for customers.

Currently, their breakfast shop is located in Qingguang market (晴光市場) and there are a number of bus routes you can take to get there. We usually stop off at Minquan West Road MRT Station and walk for 5 minutes to get there. The shop also has a Facebook page that you should check out and drop a like if you’re feeling generous to these gourmet danbing makers.

If you have time this weekend, or if you’re close by, I’d really recommend this breakfast shop’s danbing.
