This Chinese New Year is like any other CNY. I went back to my hometown, reunion with hometown friends and family. Everything is joy for the one whole week at hometown except for the very limited internet connection. Been missing all the blogs updates.
My only option to online is by using Digi gprs signal. There’s no broadband signal. Imagine the speed of the connection… It’s just 113 kbps! Oh god!
Let’s start a New Year post with something good! Upon arriving at Taipei we were greeted by cool breeze as it’s winter and it was getting dark although it’s around 5pm. We were already starving after check in to Dandy Hotel.
Since Xi Men Ding is just 10 mins away from our hotel, we decided to go to Xi Men Ding to explore the food!
Upon arriving, my aunt is so excited to see white bitter gourd juice which tasted bitter with a hint of honey taste. Very good for cooling body heat but I don’t like it as I don’t fancy bitter food. :P
Ah Zhong Mian Xian (Ah Zhong Mee Suah) – one of the very famous food among Taiwan local people and tourist. I never expect to eat the mee suah in this way. Everyone is just standing in front of the shop eating their bowl of mee suah. There are so many people patronizing this shop.
Ah Zhong Mian Xian was founded since 1975 which is 35 years ago. The mee suah is pre-cooked in a big pot where the worker just scoop into a bowl and it’s ready to serve.
My bowl of mee suah with some pig intestine served together.
The seasoning (garlic oil, vinegar and chili oil) is placed in a nearby small counter where everyone help themselves with it. You can add the seasoning base on your liking.
Beware of the chili oil, just a small amount is enough to bring the spiciness.
Ah Zhong Mian Xian taste very different from our Shilin Oyster Mee Suah. Firstly there’s no oyster in Ah Zhong Mian Xian. Secondly the mian xian tasted very fragrant, I guess thanks to the pig’s intestine.
