Everything from the decor to the dishes offered at Zhu Tou Dan can be described as distinctly Taiwanese. Their signature Combo Noodles (NT$90) are made with tasty ingredients and served with an authentic, flavorful soup. This dish is specially made by the couple who owns this business and they learned the recipe from a chef in the mountains. Now, after perfecting their noodle dish, they want to share their masterpiece with their customers. The Combo Noodles not only taste great, but are also made on a daily basis with fresh ingredients, so the taste can't be any better.
Besides their popular noodles, other well-received dishes here include Braised Carp, Fried Rice with Garlic, and Fried Pork with Chili Bean Paste (NT$180). On weekdays, they offer five types of meal boxes; you can choose anything from chicken drumsticks and pork chops to fish and braised pork for only NT$80 each. These meals are served in old-fashioned bowls with bean curds, eggs and vegetables. For some crispy favorites, try the Braised Pig's Knuckle (NT$170) or their new Crispy Intestines with Baby Beans (脆皮大腸). This restaurant is vegetarian-friendly and also takes call-ahead reservations.
↑The Braised Carp is fried and then braised with soy sauce for two hours.
