Wuhan is often referred to as the capital of breakfast in all kinds of food documentary. In Wuhan dialect, the word for having breakfast is “guo zao（过早）”, which contains the meaning to eat breakfast as rich as Chinese New Year. Among countless varieties of breakfast, the glutinous rice with fried dough sticks that full of carbon can be said to be one of the best choices to fuel people’s bodies at breakfast.
He Sao’s glutinous rice with fried dough sticks is located in the neighborhood of Xunlimen, Jiefang Avenue, Wuhan. It is not located near the street, but its business is booming, and always sold out early.
Latte once received a message from a net friend that she grew up with eating He Sao‘s, now that she has grown up and settled abroad, He Sao’s stall is still so popular.
He Sao’s is very well-known in the neighborhood for its affordable economy and long-standing. When Latte went to shooting , I have to asked several uncles and aunts to find He Sao’s cart for not familiar with the local area, however, I felt that almost everyone in the neighborhood knew where she was
He Sao’s rice balls have two flavors: sweet and salty. In the past, Latte loved having each one of them for the same time. One mouthful of sweet and one mouthful of salty was the most satisfied. After eating, I would be so full that I didn’t need having lunch.
But now due to physical reasons, although the owner strongly recommends sweet flavor, Latte can only order a salty one to relieve my craving. In fact, Latte had better not even eat fried dough sticks. However, it’s hard to say no to He Sao’s glutinous rice with fried dough sticks during the shooting. Red and white glutinous rice with solid ingredients, it’s impossible for me not to eat.
Take a bite. WOW! It’s the taste of latte’s childhood. Now in Taiwan, in order to reduce the gastrointestinal burden, many rice ball shops will put more white rice and less glutinous rice. This kind of traditional all glutinous rice ball is less and less seen.
This film was shot in late October 2019. It is said that there are two new flavors in He Sao’s, pepper and salt taste and black pepper beef fillet. You are welcome to leave a message to tell Latte, which one do you prefer?
