TAIPEI: 陳記大腸蚵仔麵線 Mee Sua & 海天香餃 Dumplings
Fat, succulent, juicy and huge.
This is one of the things I miss so much about in Taiwan, which is highly recommended by the local B&B owner. We actually came here twice, on our third night and also few hours before flying off, to get this bowl of gluey gooey mee sua.
Came piping hot; brimmed with a lot of braised large intestines and oysters, and touched with fried garlic oil and chopped parsley. I am not a big fan of offal, but when comes to theirs, I can never say no. The large intestines did not carry any stinky offal taste and they were super flavourful after braising for long hours. Love its QQ and chewy texture.
If you are not a fan of braised large intestine, you can always have the oyster only version.
Although their oysters came in a small spoonful size, they were really fresh and juicy.
Priced at NT$ 50 for small and NT$ 65 for large portion; for mee sua only (without any large intestines or oyster) NT$ 35
And this next door is selling pretty good stuff too, and we saw people were actually queuing up at late.
Steam dumplings came with a variety of filling namely pork with garlic chives, shrimp with garlic chives, pork with cabbage and shrimp with dumplings. These were all handmade on spot during day time.
Their fridge was fully filled with freshly handmade dumplings
Juicy and huge dumplings, simply dash a little of vinegar over them for extra ohmmmp!
Generous with the fillings. Slurrrppp!
