Ay-chung mee sua (Chinese thin noodle made of wheat flour) has been an icon in Ximending since 1975, serving but just one dish which has made most, if not all, people go crazy.
You'll always see a queue whenever you patronise the humble shop. If there's no queue, it means that they've got no more stock for the day. Haha...
Pork Intestine Mee Sua (Large) NT$60.00 (~S$2.50)
Definitely a must-try in Taipei, that bowl of warm mee sua coupled with the fiery chili truly warmed my soul. The slimy, silky and slippery noodle was swimming in a thick broth which was packed with flavours and garlicky as well. The chewy large intestines were properly cleaned so they didn't have any foul smell.
I know for sure that I want to get a bowl or two whenever I go to Taipei. Pika's advice: You can buy a jar of their chili if you like it very much!
