Hello Kitty Taipei tour day 3: my other favorite beef noodle

Pin It

Another day, another feeding session for Hello Kitty.  Today she requested for beef noodles, and after a quick discussion, we jumped into a cab and headed for one of my old standbys.  Lin Dong Fang Beef Noodles (林東芳牛肉麵) was within walking distance from office while I was working in Taipei, and it just happens to be one of the more popular ones in town.  After lining up for a pretty short while, we were seated in the largest (and the only air-conditioned) shop.

Braised beef tripe (切牛肚) - delicious flavors after braising, simply dressed with a little drizzle of sesame oil and spring onions.  Always love the texture, too.

Tofu puffs (花干) - honestly, I was never very impressed with this supposed famous item, and haven't ordered it after the first time.  I hesitated but ordered it so that Hello Kitty could try... and she wasn't impressed, either...

Noodles with beef and beef tendon (半筋半肉麵) - although I really love braised beef noodles, with the intensely rich soup, the clear broth here also makes me happy with the Chinese herbs thrown in - giving off a unique fragrance.  The thick slices of beef shank are very tender, and so are the chunks of beef tendon.  As for the thick noodles themselves, there's enough bite here, too.

In all my previous visits I have never ordered the big bowl, but I did for some reason today.  Definitely too big for me, and I was pretty stuffed afterwards... especially after drinking most of the delicious soup.  Of course there was some MSG added to the soup, but it wasn't too bad... and rinsing my tongue with some soda did help a little.

A pretty satisfying meal for the both of us.
