    Hong Kong people pay a lot of attention to their health, but still indulge in a love of sweets. The Sweet Dynasty is exceptional in Hong Kong for its insistence on making sweets in the traditional way. This new Taipei store is 170 ping in size, and decorated in a Chinese style. Facing the gate, some ideograms meaning "sweets go deep into your heart" were inscribed by martial arts novelist Louis Cha and Hong Kong food writer Cai Lan. These enhance customers' eating pleasure. In order to maintain the cooking standards of the original Hong Kong shop, the Sweet Dynasty in Taipei has hired one of the chefs from the original shop to stay here long term. Special materials like flake sugar, Hong Kong-style alkaline noodles, and the tea leaves and coffee for the famous drink Mandarin Duck, are also imported from Hong Kong. Others are purchased locally. Highlights include Wood Bucket Tofu Dessert (NT$220), Tremella Stewed With Papaya and Nanbei Almond Seed (NT$150), and Walnut Drink (NT$80). In all, there are 200-plus dishes, such as rice porridge, noodles, rice, Vietnamese noodles, pasta, fine rice noodles, and Hong Kong desserts. --By Josie Wu, translated by Clint Munkholm
