beef noodle soup
When I first arrived here 3 years ago, I choked down a few bites of my first bowl.
Then, my taste buds were still cultivating their tolerance of anything with spice.
And my first bowl overwhelmed me.
When I say choked, I mean exactly that.
There were tears and everything.
I am a beef noodle soup pro.
And I eat it at least once a week!
I wax and wane between fat noodles or skinny noodles.
I even wax and wane between the clear broth and the dark broth.
But I definitely know my favorite place to get it.
It's the soup shop that has a line wrapped around the block to get in.
The other night, we both had a long day.
I had planned on making pesto for dinner, but we looked at each other and said:
Without even having to ask, we walked to the door, grabbed our helmets and headed out to get a bowl full of soupy bliss.
That is exactly how good Taiwanese beef noodle soup is.
