九豐記 牛肉麵 Beef Noodles
Right after reaching Taipei, we had what we always anticipated – Taiwan beef noodles!!! So we went to this place very near to our hotel and very near to Taipei train station. This two-storey eatery was bustling with people and the time was already 2 pm!! Past lunch time! The waiters and waitresses were busy! But luckily we didn’t have to wait for very long to get a table for 10. The customers all ate very fast, and orders were quite fast because the shop is very specialised – beef noodles.
You have to place an order at the counter before you get your seats. You will see an order paper like this for you to place your orders. Then you have to pay first too.
It took only a while for our food to come. Firstly we had our cold 小菜.
Then came MH’s chicken noodles because she cannot eat beef. Totally forgot to check on her diet while planning the trip! Next time I’ll take note!
Then of course the mains:
The braised beef noodle (soup one) is the tastier one. The soup was rich but pity it wasn’t too spicy. It also came with big pieces of beef that were braised to softness which melted in our mouths.
The dried one was fragrant too, but look at how shiny the noodles were! Oily! BUT, it doesn’t feel sick after a few mouthfuls of them. In fact, you can’t stop! Really!! The noodles were tangy and chewy. They are the traditional beef noodles – flat but a bit rounded. The portions are also huge, so you can be full definitely!!
However, the time to pay a price will come after that. You will feel super duper thirsty. CAUSE? MSG! Haha, but definitely worth a try!
