Ay Chung Mee Sua Mian Xian At Ximenting 西門町阿宗麵線大肠麵線 |Johor Kaki Travels For Food
A halt at Ay Chung at Ximending 西門町 for mee sua complete alongside an Instagram or Facebook update is obligatory for many tourists to Taipei 😄
Ay Chung mee sua store is located correct at the pump of Ximending , downwardly the lane where the Adidas store is.
Actually , nosotros asked a local showtime for mee sua recommendations inward Ximending too he pointed us to some other shop. We went in that place showtime every bit I dearest to swallow where the locals swallow (instead of going immediately for the green tourist favourites).
When y'all are at Ximending , y'all cannot missy Ay Chung mee sua. There is ever a long queue outside.
There are lots of people standing too eating newspaper cups of steaming hot mee suah. Ay-Chung serves accept away alone - in that place are no tables too only a handful of stools (4-5?) for the elderly etc.
For many , a watch to Ay Chung mee sua is a selfie moment.
At Ay Chung it is every bit slow every bit 1-2-3 to teach your mee sua inward iii slow steps. Make your lodge too pay on the correct side , too thus become to your left to collect your mee sua.
It takes less than 10 seconds to serve a bowl of mee sua , thus the queue clears pretty fast. A chip of showmanship adds to the atmosphere at Ay Chung 😄
Most people part their bowl of Ay Chung mee sua every bit in that place is thus much to a greater extent than nutrient to endeavour at Ximenting , from street nutrient to fine dining.
The mee suah noodles were done really soft to virtually breaking point. So , the mee suah were really polish inward the rima oris every bit if they were strands of tofu.
Whatever they were that melted into the pasty gooey stock gave it a layered variety of savouriness. Little pieces of pork intestines added a chip of soft crunchiness too chip of sweet-savoury layer to the dish. (There are no oysters inward Ay Chung mee sua - it is 大肠麵線 , neither 蚵仔大腸麵線 nor 蚵仔麵線.)
Saw this sauce station alone later nosotros finished eating our mee sua 😂 I am told Ay Chung's chili sauce is really good. Shall endeavour it side yesteryear side fourth dimension 😄
👉 We enjoyed Ay Chung mee sua. Taste wise it is likeable though everyone (especially locals) conduct maintain their ain favourites. What sets Ay Chung apart for me personally was the overall experience - queueing inward anticipation , standing too enjoying mee suah alongside dozens of immature human being travellers. It's i of the best experiences that NT$50 tin sack buy.
(The other mee suah nosotros tried was only roughly the corner at 365 台灣小吃 - recommended yesteryear a local. It has firmer noodles , a to a greater extent than savoury stock too in that place were both oysters too pork intestines inward the bowl. Got oyster , got tabular array too chair , slightly cheaper but no , it doesn't conduct maintain the special experience of standing too eating Ay Chung mee sua. My proposition is to become for both if y'all are a large oyster mee sua fan.)
