CNN fea­tures the best beef noo­dle restau­rants in Taipei

The China Post - - LOCAL -

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.
