As usual, it is tourist food.

Visited Taiwan for twice and wife always like to eat this. I tried once four years ago, nothing fancy. Four years later, try it again. The food is only at average level and I believe local won't pick this restaurant (as I see, only tourists are queuing up)

People say if you come to Taiwan, must try this mee suah shop. It taste so so to me. Nothing special, just mee suah with intestines. I had tried one in Tao Yuan, taste much better because it is oyterand intestine meesuah with proper table and chairs. And the price is cheaper than this.

I had this 3 yrs ago, which i found it so so (with oysters in the mee sua). Recently, I tried again, the noodle (Mee Sua) was soggy and they included intestines instead of the oysters. But their business was still quite good. Probably, many of them would like to give it a try. Just FYI, There is no table,... More

Giveee me back my moneyyy!!!! The noodle is soggy, theres no decent beef or pork inside, just intestines! The taste is... More

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.
