This traditional noodle bar, situated
just around the corner from the C.K.S. Memorial Hall,
is always packed, both at lunchtime and in the evenings.
You may either eat in the large, indoor seating area
or on the tables outside. The signature dish is their
Beef Noodle Soup, which they have been serving up for
over 35 years. A large bowl of Beef Noodle Soup costs
a reasonable NT$90. The beef is good quality braising
steak, which is cooked so that it literally melts in
the mouth. The freshly made stock is excellent. The
noodles (I chose the thicker variety) compliment the
dish perfectly. Side dishes and other varities of beef
soup without noodles are also available. This is a great
place to grab a hearty lunch after wandering around
C.K.S. Memorial Hall grounds -- and, of course, an excellent
choice for those wishing to try out a traditional Taiwanese
favourite served as it should be.
