Mee Sua with pig intestines, don't expect any oysters inside! I thought it was overhyped as it didn't taste as good as I expected it to be, but my friend loved it. Try it and decide for yourself! http://poportion.blogspot.sg/2014/07/taipei-day-1-2-flew-to-taiwan-on-21st.html

Never really a fan of mee sua (Hokkien or Min-Nan or Taiwanese dialect of flour-rice noodle) and only had a few times in Singapore. But this taste of Ah Chung Mee Sua at Ximending was really very good. I had the one with pig intestines and the taste was great! Worth a try!

Taste normal to me. Maybe some people have not tasted mee sua with pigs 'intestine before. Think the crowd gathering is what we call herd instinct or just do what most people do. If you like to have a place to sit, eat and see the queue of people, suggest taking your bowl to the Bubble Tea shop two to... More

The taste seems too strong for us, unless you enjoy 'stinky tofu', this may be delicious. We still prefer south east asian style, sesame oil with liver and ginger. No seats available at this stall and it's crowded most of the time. just for a try, nothing special to me.

The noodle was great! There was a long queue, but the staff were very efficient & waiting time was short. The restaurant was not easy to find, but most Taiwanese were so kind & helpful to show us the way to the restaurant.

How can anyone resist n say no to a bowl of mee sua? I know I won't. Every time I visit taiwan, it is a MUST to eat at least 1 bowl of ay Chung mee sua. Adding loads of garlic, vinegar is a must! I'm missing it so much now...

What strikes me about this stall is that I heard more Singaporean/Malaysian accents being spoken than the Taiwanese. Comes in either small or large size. Add your own garlic, vinegar and chilli sauce. I loaded mine up with plenty. You have to stand at the sidewalk and slurp it up using just a Chinese soup spoon. It warmed my belly... More

Went taipei again and I still love Ah Chung Mian Xian! Ate it twice during my recent trip. Never fails to make it miss it again when I am back. The queue is always long but don't worry, you will get yours very quickly. This mee sua is really the best and a must try whenever I am in Taiwan!... More

The queue is always long but the staff are very efficient at serving the customers. The waiting time is just a few minutes even when the queue is long. You will see a lot of people standing outside the shop eating their mian xian. Both my girlfriend and myself love this mian xian as it is very different from the... More

i could smell it from at least a shop or two away, and the amount of people lining up for it was amazing! But i could understand why after tasting it. Thick but soft noodles, and its savory soup! I wanted a second bowl, regretting that i got only a small bowl, but one look at the loooong line ,... More
