After we checked-in in our hotel, this is the 1st stall that we visited. My husband has been talking about this Rice-Noodle, since his first visit in Taipei. He and his Sister ate it religiously. I tried it once and thats it, we kept coming back. We ate it at least 5 to 6 times on our 3 days visit... More

I chanced upon it as I was walking around and staying in Taiwan for a month, went back again and again. I think I liked the taste and texture and wish they had a proper sit down cafe. Great for a quick snack or cheap budget meal. Service was very efficient, you don't have a long wait even with a... More

Like the title mentioned. I first had my share of Ay Chung in 2011, and at every revisit, I'd make my typical "pilgrimage" to have one portion of the luscious noodles in stock. To beat the crowd, have it as late breakfast on a weekday.

The food was just OK. I found similar or better ones in few night markets in Taipei, with much less queue. But agree with what linyuan wrote, just try when you're around Xi Men Ding. Although you would be in long queue, your turn come fast as your option only small or large.

The noodle taste is strange. 3 of us only had 1 spoonful of it and decided not to attempt. The noodles are served with intestines, there are nos oysters! There are better flour-rice noodles than Ay-Chung's. Don't waste your time to queue.

it's kind of food you can find almost everywhere in Taiwan. I wouldn't line up to get this average- taste bowl. If you are interest, ask your Taiwanese friend to find better noodle elsewhere.

I suppose there are hordes of people who likes it but for me it was a one time experience, I have no desire to try them again. There's always a long line here, I wondered why people queue up for plain noodles. There are plenty of other kinds of food to try in Taipei. Much more flavoursome food. No tables... More

Its very unique. If you are at Ximending do drop by and try. Its nice and tasty. Small is a bit too small so go for the medium size. My very first bowl is without and added spice cos I wanted to try the original taste of it. Second night I ordered again, this time adding the vinegar and garlic.... More

1st time to visit Taipei and food trip was really amazing. You don't need to eat in fancy restaurants to try good noodles. This one is just 2 mins. away from Ximen MRT station and if you want to experience eating like the locals, line up (yes we went there twice and there's long lines although serving is really fast...
