擔仔麵 is one of iconic and local food in Tainan. If you want to try some local street food, certainly it is a good choice. However, the portion is quite small, which I felt it is a bit pricey. The decoration is quite traditional, which makes you feel the past time in Taiwan. Nice place to try street food, but... More

Noodles were good. I prefer beef noodle soup. But taking my wheelchair bound grandpa to this place and being able to eat amongst history was priceless!

I tried 3 restaurants in Tainan that specialised in Peddlers noodles and this was the best by some margin. How can noodles taste this good?

Light broth noodle, and very tasty. If you want light lunch in Tainan this is a good place. Shrimp roll is also good as well as the fried oyster. You won't go wrong with this little place.

This is my second trip within a month to Taiwan. This time my colleague and I stayed in Taipei for a day , and then took the high speed train to Kaoshiung where we stayed at 85 Sky Tower. We took a train from Kaoshiung Station to Tainan on the morning of the third day to Tainan. Surprisingly, Tainan has... More

We went to the "original" location, even though our hotel recommended that we visit their other, larger location. Note there is not an English-language menu, though one of the servers spoke a few words of English. There is a photo menu with text in Chinese and Japanese, though, so it's pretty easy to actually order.

We were there for a snack today and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's got a lot of history to it, the noodles are indeed tasty, the price is GREAT, and the man who cooks the stuff literally sits in a corner of the room surrounded by pots and throws every meal together right before your (and everyone else's) eyes. Apparently... More

N22°59'32.98" E120°12'10.54" Tu Hsiao Yeuh is the oldest and most famous noodle shop in Taiwan and is owned by the forth generation of the founder’s family. The dishes, like Tan Tsai noodles, are cooked up on a traditional stove near the entrance. Staff does not speak English, but a neighbour was asked to translate. We loved the noodle soup, chicken,...
