Boiling soy juice is an art. When boiling, temperature must be correct. It cannot be too big or too small. I once heard an old man say that first you need to scoop up a spoonful of soy juice and pour it into a pot, then scoop another spoonful after pot boils, and repeat this process until amount is sufficient. Usually my mom makes soy sauce at home and heat is well regulated. I have never tried this method, but now every family uses gas stoves or induction cookers. It should be much more convenient to control heat than it used to be on charcoal stoves.

Douzhi Zhang in South Xinhua Street and Douzhi He in Dong'an Market are very famous. In addition, there is a very famous bean juice shop, Jinxin Doujiang shop. This store was originally located at intersection of Langan Street, but was later moved due to expansion of Liangguang Street, and is now owned by Bianyifang Group. I remember when I was little, my father used to drive by Lam Kham City for work and he often had breakfast here. Since this store is located in southeast corner of Ciqikou, it is also called "Ciqikou Doujuice Store". Later, several restaurants appeared under name "Old Ciqikou Doujuice Restaurant". The author has not verified this, so I don't know if it has anything to do with Jinxin Doujuice restaurant.
