--By Dionysus, translated by Cara Steenstra

688 Beef Bowl has been in business for 15 years and has finally opened its first branch in the Eastern District. Known to everyone as “Niu Ba” (father cow) and “Niu Ma” (mother cow), owners Mr. and Mrs. Wang have always done everything by themselves. The interior is kept clean and simple, and the owner puts his heart and soul into every bowl of beef noodles, from the painstaking process of preparing the ingredients to the stewing and cooking. Thus, everyone can feel at ease when eating Niu Baba's noodles. Apart from insisting that no MSG or additives are put in the food, they also use a special soup base using top-grade ingredients like beef bones, fillet beef, beef tenderloin and beef ribs. This slow-cooked beef soup is an opaque amber color with great flavor. They have also painstakingly removed the fat from the beef tendons, so that you won't be left with greasy lips after enjoying your noodles. Interestingly, this doesn't compromise the taste one bit. Each piece of beef is of good quality, especially the Ti Hua (NT$60) which is marinated with soy sauce and rock sugar; the meat looks shiny and is deliciously chewable. Whether it is the Plain Stewed Beef Noodles (NT$200), the Ti Hua Dry Noodles (NT$180), the Traditional Family Beef Noodles (NT$380), or the most expensive dish here--the High Grade Beef Noodles (NT$600)--everything is extremely delicious.
