news: TAIPEI BEEF NOODLE SOUP FESTIVAL
I miss it every year, but yesterday I passed by the 2008 Beef Noodle Soup festival in a taxi and didn't have time to stop! I'm going to try and go today, but it depends on if I can squeeze it in before some family commitments.
But if you are reading my blog today (Sunday, Nov 16th), be sure to wander over to the area in front of Taipei City Hall (at the end of Ren Ai Road, not too far from 101) for the last day of the festival and sample some of the competitors for Best Beef Noodle Soup in the city. Maybe your own personal favorite won't be on the list. But it's one stop shop to check out all the recent favorites.
I'm not sure how it works - so if anyone who has been before can share how it works- entry fee and free samples? Or buy by the bowl?
Both the Chinese and English versions of the busy website are a bit hard to navigate, but check them out for more info.
