Traditional Chinese noodle cuisine is a home-style cooking common to Taiwan's many military dependent villages. The owner of Di Di A Kitchen learned his skills from childhood working with his father at his noodle shop in the Feng Chia University area. Their Beef Noodles (NT$100) use top-quality Australian beef cooked until it's tender. The broth is brewed with various ingredients for a full day so that all the flavors are absorbed into the soup, and the noodles are handmade without any additives. Even simple dishes such as Soybean Paste Noodles (NT$70) and Sesame Paste Noodles (NT$50) are made to the highest standards. The Three-Flavored Dumplings (NT$50, 10 dumplings) often use seasonal vegetables such as bottle gourd (opo squash), daikon (Chinese radish), fennel, Chinese cabbage, cabbage and leeks. Each dumpling is handmade by the wife of the owner herself. Other dishes include Today's Rice (NT$60), Spicy Beef Tendon (NT$150), Stewed Beef Stomach (NT$70), Stewed Dish Combo (NT$50, with five types of food) and Stir-Fried Dry Fish With Chili Peppers (NT$50). --By Lishea Zheng, translated by Naomi Lai
