TW Tour: Old Mom's and Old Pop's Breakfast, Kenting

We read that this place, Old Mom's and Old Pop's, had porridge and small paltes for breakfast but when we got there, we found out that was no longer available. So we ordered some northern style breakfast dishes and a couple bowls of porridge/congee. Our second taste of dan bing was not as beautiful as the version we had on Alishan.

The taro cakes and pot stickers were good, however, especially with the hot sauce and oyster sauce they gave us.
Also interesting to see the potstickers had open sides. Wonder what that does?
A bowl of TW style porridge with seafood and veggies. The rice was very distinct from the soup which is typical of TW style.
The preserved egg and pork porridge was much creamier in consistency (no cream though) with an egg beaten in. I am now of the opinion that congee is the more smooth, creamy style, and porridge is the rice separate style.
The pork floss was melt-in-your-mouth. Janet vowed to buy pork floss.
As usual the price was just ridiculously low compared to what we're used to paying for food in the US. NT420 (~14).
