There are many beef noodles shop in Ximending, and the hotel staff recommended that we try this shop.
Aptly named as 牛店, it is all about beef here. This place could probably sit about 40 customers, and we liked that the tables were quite spread out, and it felt rather cozy here 🙂
We ordered a 牛筋椒麻拌麵 Spicy Dry Noodles with Beef Tendon (NT$170), and 満漢牛肉湯 Beef Soup (NT$220) to share. The soup came with 腱子心 beef shank, 牛筋 beef tendon, and 牛肚 beef tripe.
If we could only use one word to describe everything, it would be awesome “chewy-ness”! We liked the texture of the beef parts, and the noodles resembled a thinner form of udon. Adding the bone marrow spicy oil available at each table further enhanced the flavours of the soup.
The price tag might be a bit on the high side, but the place was rather comfortable, and we enjoyed our meal very much.
Note: Tea is freely available at the back of the shop.
