Must Try!

This shop is usually crowded with patrons. There's no actual sitting area, just some stools lying around, first come first served. Love the mee sua. Delicious, especially when the vinegar, minced garlic, and chili are added. Every time we visit XMD, we come here for a bowl.

Ay-Chung at Ximending serves Taiwanese must-try for visitors and locals alike. The store sells only one dish in two different sizes (small and large). I visited during non-peak hour, approximately 3pm, and there was a short queue, but when I passed by the shop again during dinner time, around 6-7pm, the line was snaking around the corner! The Mee Suah... More

We had just had the famous beef noodles a few streets down. And I had just pigged out on another snack we had seen down the road. When we came up to Ay Chung noodles, I was very skeptical and hesitant. There was a line, it was hot, I was full....thought about giving it a miss. But luckily my husband... More

Winter is just the perfect time to patronised this reputable mee suah & it's worth the wait, sometimes as long as 50 pax in the queue. You got to stand as you eat because there's only a handful chairs only. We were fortunate that there was a family of four who gave us their seats as soon as we took... More

As the last time I had this was 10 years ago, the over-anticipation may have led to slight disappointment. Anyhow, it is still worth a try. Sidetrack: we stood eating opposite Ah Zhong, in front of Royal Bali Massage - the massage there is really good!

We saw a long queue from afar and knew we have found our destination. This type of noodles in broth Is very popular. Visually the noodles don't look appetizing as they were precooked and soaked in broth in a large pot waiting to be ladled into disposable paper bowls. There are a few plastic stools for seating with stickers giving... More

I have read lots of good comment and review abt this mian xian, and this has been placed on the top of my taiwan food list. However, after trying, personally I think that this is overrated, it is 'quite' nice but not extremely nice. (though I went back again for second bowl) so for me it's a 'can try', not... More

No trip to taiwan is complete without eating ay chung's mian xian (rice flour noodles)! Unlike many i've tried before, the soup here is not too thick or starchy so you won't get tired of the taste. The noodle texture is awesome as well. You can choose to have pig intestines or just pork slices to go with your noodles.... More

What can I say about this place. Have made 4 visits to Taipei, and on each visit, never failed to drop by here. The attraction is simple vermicelli. Tasty, and the chilli is good if you can take spicy. Big bow cost NT65 and small bowl costs NT50. Price have gone up slightly since my last visit in 2013. There... More
