Fu Hang Soy Milk is on the second floor of Hua-shan Market.
Hua-shan Market is right at the Exit No. 6 MRT Shan-dao Temple Station. Initially a street market, its name "Hua-shan" originated from a Japanese governor Kabayama Sukenori.
With its interior renovated in 2009, it's now dubbed as the five-star street market.
Hua-shan Market is surrounded by the commercial and government office buildings.
Across from the street are the famous Buddhist temple Shan-dao Temple, DPP headquarters and Executive Yuan; on the same side of the street are a five-star Sheraton Hotel and Legislative Yuan.
It's also only one MRT station away from the Taipei Main Station.
