Beef noodle soup, classic Taiwanese taste

Good chef could hide on small street, I tend to decide my meal by the smelling of cooking.
When I smell this noodle stand, I knew it will be a treat to my hungry appetite before a 2 hour movie.

My beef “san-bao” (means three treasure) noodle. Three treasure is flank steak/beef tendon/beef stomach.

Appetizer is minced pork sauce over cooked lactuca.
