Must try in Taipei

This is my favourite Flour Rice Noodle. The place is easy to find since there is always people queuing. It is cheap and yet it is very tasteful. I think it needs no further compliment - just go to try if you are in Taipei!

Been there couple time, I didn’t see any point to wait in line for that. But if you never try Oyster thin noodles, you should try which is different texture than the normal noodles. I like to have it when I passed the place when there in no people waiting. The flavor is origin and good without too much additional... More

First brought here many years years ago by good friends and colleagues and make it a point to eat here at least once each trip. Other reviews summarise it nicely - long but fat moving queue, 2 menu choices (large or small bowl), standing only (in all weathers), cheap and tasty. The locals love it so I figure it must... More

Nice comfort food. Noodles ( mee sua) with pig intestine. A local delicacy. Only one type of food available. Taste was excellent. Very chewy noodles.

Something new to experience. Very Very long queue that moves fast. A small bowl costs 50NTD - very filling and yummy. Worth the hype and must try!

Super nice and delicious - whether in hot or cold weather. Comfort food at its best. Be prepared to stand around, or simply pack it back to eat in the comfort of your hotel. Be careful not to put too much chilli as it is extremely potent.

Nothing special, just another bowl of soup with noodles, no seats and need to stand while eating although they said is its specialty. The soup is almost same with the other spicy sour soup at TanShui. May try it if you really keen to know how it taste. Otherwise, just skip this and I would suggest to try some other... More

We read about this in tour guide books so even though there were 20 people in line we wanted to give it a try. For about C$2 you get a bowl of hot, spicy noodle which was very tasty and filling. No wonder people were gobbling it up while standing in the street!

The noodles are filling. The price is cheap. But be ready to fall in line. The long line is manageable since the staff try their best to work efficiently. This is quite famous in Taiwan and one should try it. I believe the noodles are that good since they only serve one type. The staff will just ask you for... More

Found Ay-Chung completely by accident and fell in love with it straight away. Delicious, filling and cheap! It's not fancy but just honest good food!
