Or sometimes known as “Bitter Melon”

Located at Taipei’s Ximending, this fruit juice shop called “Lemon House 21” or 檸檬屋正宗苦瓜原汁 has been popular with tourists and locals alike.

The Bitter Gourd is supposed to pack several nutrients, has cancer-fighting properties, and can help reduce blood sugar.

I am not sure about a cup with honey added to it. With that said, the stall claims that there is no added sugar or water. Lady boss also further explained that the recipe will be tweaked depending on the season.

If you have previous qualms about having the Bitter Gourd, the cup is actually quite addictively refreshing and cooling, with mild sweetness and just a touch of the bitterness coming to the end.
