So we managed to locate the Pintoo puzzle shop that sells the type of jigsaw puzzle that we like, but the stock would only arrive in the afternoon. Feeling famished, we took to the small streets to look for small eats to fill our stomach.
It was really quite a bit of walk to reach this place. We were actually quite shocked that the “chef” was in such a bad mood, sprouting vulgarities and all as she moved around the shop. When taking orders, it was as though she was scolding the customer who ordered “chicken chop noodle” without specifying what kind of noodle. Anyway, we had walked a long way in, and there were still quite a few customers in the small shop, so we figured that the food should be not bad, enough for customers to endure her attitude. Here were what we tried.
- 私房麵 Special Homemade Noodle (NT$70): The tangy tomato soup base was very good, and really helped to whelped our appetite! The noodles resemble some kind of thick 刀削面, abit too thick for my liking, but it went quite well with the soup.
- 麻酱干麵 Sesame Dry Noodle (NT$50 小): we could smell the aromatic fragrance of sesame as we stirred the noodles! Though this is not 凉面，it was similarly yummy!
- 滷大肠 Braised Pig Intestines (NT$60): This is the crunchy and chewy type, so you gotta chew a bit to savour it, unlike the softer versions. It grew onto us!
By the time we were done, the lady had calmed down enough to talk to other customers rather nicely, so I guessed we had simply came at a wrong time. Luckily the food was not bad!
