Warm soup noodle dishes are always on my mind when its cold out so what better time to post about Lin Dong Fang (林東芳牛肉麵) in Taipei. Late one evening during our visit, our friend Gary took Mimi and I to this well-known hole in the wall restaurant.
We arrived a bit before the clubbing crowd would swarm the place, but there was still a pretty sizable line along the street. Since we didn’t do any research on this particular spot, Mimi and I weren’t sure what to expect. The kitchen is wide open and visible from the street with a few storefronts that the restaurant has taken over surrounding it on either side. Definitely nothing glamorous there but we had come for the food, not the decor. In the end, I really enjoyed their medley of herbs which made the broth in the beef noodle soup quite tasty and soothing.
