Taichung Best Beef
By Douglas Habecker
When it comes to basic Chinese food, beef noodles are near the
top of the list of favorite dishes for Chinese and foreigners alike.
On a cool fall or winter day, there is almost nothing better than
a big steaming bowl of noodles and broth, together with chunks of
beef and some vegetables, to chase the chill away.
Taichung, like any city on the island, is filled with dozens, if
not hundreds, of beef noodle (nio rou mien) eateries, providing
an almost-endless supply of options to explore. Most of them are
at least trying once with individual establishments often featuring
their own unique variations on the basic theme.
This month, Restaurant Round-Up has provided three beef noodle
restaurants which differ from each other in specific ways but are
1. Bei Fang Hand-Cut
2. 369 Snack Bar
3. San Shang Chao Fu
