Du Hsiao Yueh (度小月) @ Yong Kang Street (永康街), Taipei

I posted my first food review on Du Hsiao Yueh in 2013. This post received many readership. We are back five years later. This time, it is at outlet along Yong Kang Street (永康街). We ordered almost the same items as we did the last time around.

Generally, Du Hsiao Yuen has a very long history and is a renowned brand to most locals. However, it is highly pricey. You may get something similar from elsewhere. 

We ordered their specialty noodle dish, Tan Tsi Noodles (擔仔麵). The noodles still taste like the prawn noodles soup back in Singapore. Compared to the Singapore's version, the broth was less fragrant and rich. Crispy pork lard cubes were served in the broth. The noodles were perfectly cooked like the al dente style. The prawn broth was sweet and addictive. Somehow, It tasted as if there is MSG in the soup. Or perhaps not. (Food rating: 3/5)

Similar to Tan Tsi Noodles, this was served with broad noodles. The soup / broth was the same. Between the two, the Tan Tsi Noodles is the better choice.

Traditional Braised Minced Meat with rice (魯肉飯) was fragrant and the rice was chewy. Interestingly, the braised minced meat was a mixture of lean meat and fats. (Food rating: 3/5)

Taiwanese Sausage (台灣香腸) made from lean meat, was served with garlic slices. If you were to eat with sausage slice with a slice of garlic, you will find the taste was heightened and delicious. However, this sausage was very expensive compared to the one we tried in Shilin Night Market. (Food rating: 3/5)

The deep fried pig intestines was special. The intestines were deep fried until it was crispy. Dip the intestines into the prune powder. The pig intestine tasted sweet and salted at the same time. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

Stir-fried water lotus vegetable (水莲菜) with chopped garlic was interesting. The vegetables were crunchy and in beautiful green. (Food rating: 3/5)
