AyChung Flour Rice Noodle

Decent price with flavourful flour rice noodle. Quite a long queue during dinner time, you can avoid the queue just 30 mins before closing time

I love the mee suah .... the taste is so right though some says people come becos it is a tourist's place. But I am satisfied with the taste... adding chili n vinegar makes a perfect bowl for me

The flavor of the noodle has been very consistent. The store has never failed to draw crowds and queues. The queues moves quickly as there are only 2 choices customers have. Small or big bowl. There are sauces available at the side and I totally recommend adding a little of all 3 sauces (chilli, vinegar and garlic) to the noodles.

It is nice to bring first timers to Taiwan to 'induct' them, but we heard that the queue is mostly tourists (especially tour group) so much so it becomes an 'attraction' in XiMenDing, The locals don't go there as they know of better and cheaper places in XiMenDing.

Definitely a must try in Ximending! This place was recommended to us by Taiwan Pockets Day Tours. The queue may appear long but not to worry as the service is extremely fast!

No chair? Doesn't matter. Long queue? Doesn't matter. It's raining? Doesn't matter. I mean it is that good. You can just order the size of you order, big or small. Just one food to be served here. Rice noodle in this seafood-like-flavour. Delish! It's a great stop when you're tired from doing all the shopping in Ximen area and have... More

Cheap and tasty broth with soft texture rice noodles, and pork intestines. Strong umami flavours (suspect there is bonito flakes melted into the soup). Don't let the long long queue in Ximending scare you away. It moves very quickly.

We stayed at Amba XMD and Ay Chung is just nearby. Queue is long but moves really fast. I like that this vermicelli is cooked with large intestines. Some places cook it with oysters. I think this cooked with large intestines taste much better. Really good with the chilli sauce which can be potent. They have 2 sizes. I suggest... More

At night, there will be alot of people queuing for Flour-Rice Noodle. Although the queue was long but it will be your turn in about 5 to 10minutes. The price was reasonable ( large bowl NT65 & small bowl NT50 ). After collecting your food, people will be eating outside the store with their family members or even friends. It... More
