Decent local vegan noodle stall

I was looking for something near where I was staying in Taipei for a quick bite, and this spot fit the bill. Their signature dish is noodles in that medicinal broth made from Chinese angelica. It’s not one of my favorite flavors, so I asked for vegetable noodles (NT$60) instead. What I didn’t realize was that they also have a medicinal vegetable noodle dish (NT$70), which is what the owner ended up serving me. I felt bad about correcting her and wasting food, so I ended up eating it anyway. It actually tasted pretty good rather than being overwhelming like other experiences I’ve had with medicinal broths in Taiwan.

I also attempted to order the vegan eel (NT$25) and vegetable roll (NT$20) from the menu, but both has sold out already. She recommended I show up earlier if I want a wider selection. Instead, I just looked at the available items on the counter and pointed at the fried tofu skin (NT$15), which she cut up into bite-sized pieces and served on a plate separate from my bowl of noodles.

She asked whether I wanted cilantro, and I appreciated that she offered it. A few minutes after I’d sat down at one of the four tables inside, my food arrived. It was satisfying and comforting. Don’t mind the repetitive Buddhist music blasting from the old CD player at the first table: it’s part of the experience.

Pros: fast, affordable, metal utensils

Cons: no napkins, melamine bowls
