Can somone out there tell me more about the stores that sell chicken burgers during the morning breakfast hours? These places also sell hamburgers, tuna sundwiches, “dan bing”, “luo buo gao,” and other goods, many of which are fried on a grill.
I had a friend in from out of town and he asked me about them. “Since when did eating a chicken burger with a fried egg, cucumbers, onion slices, tomato slices, and mayo become a ‘typical’ Taiwanese breakfast?” he asked. I had to admit that I did not know.
How long have these places been around? How did they get started? Are they uniquely Taiwanese? Any insights on these places–or the custom of starting the day off with a chicken burger and a cup of milk coffee–are welcome.
