Love it! . It's a must eat in Taipei and I always had more than once whenever I went taipei. Location at Xi mending can be a bit confusing. Just look out for long queue or ppl standing around eating .. the ordering and serving is very systematic and fast. And though they serve the mee sua with garlic and... More

This little joint services gloopy rice flour noodles. Highly recommend. Super tasty. Supposedly the base was historically made from oysters and has since been replaced with pork / intestines - very flavoursome not to mention cheap!

Took a while to find this place, however the food wasn't as great as the hype. Wouldn't recommend it.

one of the most crowded and popular food in ximending. you must try this noodle. although the queue is long. but it's worth it. you can see around the stall. people are just standing and eating the noodle. very soft yet creamy. taste is unique. although the presentation is just like an ordinary noodle. but worth to try!

Decided to try the mee sua after reading all the reviews and seeing the perpetual crowd, and I was not disappointed at all! Super tasty, flavourful and satisfying and yet extremely affordable (NTD50 for a small bowl) - I would probably eat this all the time if I lived here.

I am not a keen eater of pig intestines so this dish wasnt amazing to me. The noodles were good but had the flavour of the intestines which I am sure is the appeal to some people. Its worthy to try if u in the area but dont go out of your way to find it. Also there is no... More

AY-Chung's angel hair noodle soup is delicious, it's popular among Taiwanese and tourists. It's a traditional Taiwanese cuisine with pork intestines and rice noodles with many spices and sauces. There is always a long line at this place, but luckily the line moves quickly. You paid first and wait for your order. They provide vinegar and chili on the side... More

Tried the rice noodle as it is really good. Soft and got many ingredients inside. The service is fast though it is very crowded but food serve fast.

The noodles are tasty and made nicer with the extra vinegar and garlic which you can add. The downside is that as the place does not have a dining area, it does mean you need to eat standing in searing heat on the streets.
