CNN features the best beef noodle restaurants in Taipei
CNN on Wednesday picked eight restaurants that it said serves the best beef noodles in Taipei, a city that it noted has an annual festival devoted to the dish.
“At beef noodle soup’s equivalent of Oscar’s night (Taipei Beef Noodle Festival), awards are given for the city’s best traditional spicy broth and best clear broth soup,” CNN said in its review.
”It’s obvious — a bowl of beef noodles is the best way to dive into the Taipei experience.”
At the top of CNN’s list of Taipei’s best beef noodle restaurants was the Regent Taipei hotel, whose “award-winning dish features beef slices alongside bird’s-nest fern, a crunchy and slightly bitter green from Taiwan’s mountains.”
In second place was Yong Kang Beef Noodle restaurant, a family run business that serves “chewy noodles, tender Australian beef, gelatinous tendons and flavorful broth with a hint of star anise,” CNN said.
CNN picked a small long-established eatery as the third best beef noodle joint in Taipei, saying that Lin Dong Fan is famed for its oldschool recipe and “has been pleasing palates for three decades.”
The other places featured in the review were Pin Chuan Lan, W Taipei hotel, Mien Mien Chu Tao Tasty Noodle House, Taiwan Yi Pin Ramen, and Sliced Noodle, Silks Palace at the New Palace Museum, in that order.
