This rice noodle eatery in Ximending tourist district has actually become my place for breakfast in the past few days. A famous eatery don’t even need opulent décor or comfortable seats as the food itself is the best enticement for new and old customer, such that holding a bowl sitting or standing here and there near the entrance has become something to marvel at for new comers to Taipei like me.
Very very special indeed, I must confess I’ve taken nothing like this as a bowl of noodle before, the soup in brown is very thick, flows slowly with rice noodles of varied thickness, and a kind of brown, thin veggie that gives you the feeling of chewing tiny shredded meat in your mouth. A few pieces of pig intestine are used which are quite crunchy and would not be too oily.
You could help yourselves anytime with the 3 different sauces as seasoning, namely Chili, Garlie, and Vinegar, though I would suggest using none of them as the noodles with its soup taste already great enough by itself. The rice noodles is not the chewy type you would expect with ramen, garnish with corianda when it is served, this rice noodles inclines to a bland palate, very much my kind of thing.
