hungry in taipei - ay chung's noodles

If you are ever hungry in Taipei, then one of the best places for a quick snack would be at Ay-Chung Flour Rice Noodle, located in Ximending district in Taipei, Taiwan.  It is a deceptively simple noodle dish, but it tastes so good!      

It is very easy to find this place, just look for the place with a huge line up and crowd of people eating noodles on Emei Street in the Ximending shopping district of Taipei.  The dish itself is simply rice vermicelli in a rich starchy broth, with traces of pork meat, and some of the “nasty bits” of the pork…such as the pig’s stomach, and intestines.  For me I have no problem eating the “nasty bits”, in fact I love eating them!

On top of that you have an abundance of condiments to enhance the flavours of your noodles.  For me, I simply added some minced garlic, soy sauce, red vinegar, sesame oil, and some chilli oil.  It tasted amazing.  Furthermore one standard size bowl is only about 1.50 USD!
