Miaohou Bowled & Steamed Rice Cake

It was first sold behind Miaohou Temple in Jian Village, Hualien and became well-known. The breakthrough in making Miaohou Bowled & Steamed Rice Cake gives the rice cake a unique chewy texture and flavour. It is not only the love of the locals, but also of pilgrims. 
There is an interesting story behind the success of Miaohou Bowled & Steamed Rice Cake. The owner of the store had been a businessman, but during the economic recession, he decided to join in the food and beverage industry. In the beginning, the owner had no clue how to make bowled and steamed rice cakes, so he travelled all the way from Keelung to Pingtung and tasted all the famous bowled and steamed rice cakes island-wide. After continuous research and numerous failures and setbacks, the owner finally came up with a recipe for savoury bowled and steamed rice cakes without wet and gooey mess. 
Under the owner’s persistent hard work, Miaohou Bowled & Steamed Rice Cake quickly rose to the fame by word of mouth, and has been recognised as a Hualien specialty.
