That Taiwanese Noodle Place With No Name

I’ve been trying to find out the name of this place but it’s all in Chinese characters so I don’t know, I guess I will just have to call it that Taiwanese Noodle place near Green Basil in front of Metrotown, really long name but I’m sure locals will find it.

This place has only five tables so it gets really packed especially during dinner. I used to always walk by this street looking for it but couldn’t find it, I thought it closed down for good, but it turned out that they are closed during Mondays, and since they don’t really have a proper sign except for all those Chinese characters, you wouldn’t really know that it was a restaurant. The place was so small, it looked like a barber shop.

On to the food, my favorite dish here is their beef tendon, and that’s what I ordered. My friend got the mapo tofu, which was also good. The pickled bamboo shoots really stank but it tasted ok too. All in all this is a hole in the wall kind of place that locals really love to go to. If people are willing to wait 30 minutes for a table, then it must be really good.This family owned restaurant should definitely expand their place soon.

Verdict:
N: 3.5/5.0 [-1.5 because of the long wait to be seated]
