snapshot/taiwanese: i strongly recommend CHUN SHUI TANG's beef noodle soup
Hungry in Taoyuan? Does it have the same ring to it? First time noticing the beef noodle soup (NT$150) on the menu at Chun Shui Tang, while looking for a place to eat at Taimall in Taoyuan.
At Chun Shui Tang, I usually ask for the English menu, even though it doesn't actually list everything that's available on the real, check off menu. So if you're looking for something more than dim sum and drinks, the most filling dish is probably the beef noodle soup. I was pleasantly surprised by the chewy, chubby noodles, the slightly spiciness of the broth and the abundance of tender beef in the bowl. Add the provided pickled vegetables into the dish for a sweet/savory taste and texture to complete the experience.
Loved it. Devoured it.
Also get the fried radish cakes and pearl milk tea, and enjoy the old school tea house ambiance. There's also a Chun Shui Tang at the Taoyuan airport, and at Taimall there's also Starbucks, Movenpick Cafe, Coldstones, Dunkin Donuts, KFC, McDonalds, Sushi Express, 3 Baboons, Casa de Pasta, Karen Teppanyaki, Mr. Onion, Ponderosa and of course, lots of Chinese food and a food court.
What else is good to eat in Taoyuan by the way? (Couldn't find much info in English...)
