In 1946, several culinary enthusiasts met during a training session in Taipei's Gong Guan. From Hakka, Hunan and Szechuan backgrounds, they created a kind of beef noodles with a great soup base, tender meat and chewy noodles. Mr Zhang, of Hakka origin, was the first to open up a noodle shop in Taipei's Gong Guan, but later moved to Jhong Li (chungli), and has been famous in the Taoyuan and Hsinchu area for over 50 years. Mr. Sam Liu, an expert in running a chain of barbeque restaurants, met old master Mr. Zhang through some friends. A gourmet himself, Liu wanted to preserve the old master's skills and, after years of learning, he finally opened his own Ke Xiang Quan Beef Noodles near the Taipei Railway Station. Interestingly, this noodle shop looks more like a modern cafe, completely different from traditional noodles shops. The beef noodles here are aromatic and not greasy, the beef tender and delicious. All the noodles, appetizers and sauces have been carefully created at the central kitchen in Shizi by Liu. It is no wonder that this place has been packed with customers since the day it opened, with many old timers coming here for the original flavors they once loved. Apart from Beef Noodles, other dishes such as the Pork with Dry Noodles, Ham Noodles, and a variety of dumplings are also available.
