Tales from the Plate: Taiwan

Beyond the big city metropolis and natural wonders of nature that Taiwan is proud of, this state city is a food trip paradise as well.From its claim to fame - Bubble Milk Tea to hole in the wall restaurants, Taiwan will delight all your culinary senses.

A steaming bowl of Beef Noodle and some innards wouldn't hurt

You can find what the locals claim as "the best" beef noodle in Formosa in a small quiet side street in Da'an district. Identified by its huge signboard with huge Chinese letters and translation
at the bottom that reads Yong Kang Beef Noodle and a considerable queue in front of the store. It is a typical Chinese restaurant housed in old shophouse with its tightly packed table and chairs and
the din of conversations alternating with soft slurps.You can order a steaming bowl of beef noodle with a tasty broth often claimed is made of "well kept" secret ingredient, soft and tender beef and gelatinous clumps of tendons. A side order of some intestine innards cooked with spices and chilli is the perfect partner. Ordering might be a bit of a trouble for non-mandarin speaker but they have a menu with photos and as the old adage goes "A picture speaks a thousand words".
