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!
The famous Ay-Chung Noodles.
So if you don’t mind eating pig internals, then this place is highly recommended. The noodles are simple, hearty, cheap, and tastes great!
