TAIWAN STREET FOOD NOODLES – 3 BEST Taiwanese Noodle Soups in Taipei

TAIWAN STREET FOOD NOODLES – 3 BEST Taiwanese Noodle Soups in Taipei


– What’s up cuties? Today we are at Tonghua Night
Market, one of my favorite night markets here in Taipei, Taiwan. Now I’m gonna show you
three Taiwanese noodle soups you must try, a.k.a.
I’m sending you nudes. N-o-o-d, noods, because
then that’d be awkward, if it was the other one. Okay, I’m gonna start the video now. (big band music) We are here at our first
stop to try some delicious danzai noodles. Check this out. ♪ Ahhhh ♪ I don’t know if you can
hear in the background, but there’s this romantic,
sexual jazz music playing, and I think it’s very fitting
for this noodle right here. I think it’s time for
some noodle bowl porn. (rhythmic music) ♪ Oooh yeah ♪ – Ooh snaps, mm, noodle bowl. So if you actually search up danzai, or danzai noodles online,
you’re gonna see the photo very similar to this, but it
has a piece of shrimp on top. So we’re missing the
shrimp, but we basically got everything else. We have some minced pork,
we have bean sprouts, cilantro, black vinegar,
garlic, soy sauce, and egg. These are the usual
ingredients you need to make a delicious danzai noodles. Yes, queen. Noodles actually dates
back to the Qing dynasty 130 years ago. Yes, thank you Google
search for that information. We are going to try this
delicious bowl of noodles. Oh my gosh, I am salivating already. Here we go. Mmmm, oh, oh my goodness. That was so delicious, that
was actually really good. Oh yeah, okay, the noodle is chewy. It’s super soft. It’s also flavorful. It really soaked in that
soup, and this broth, ohh, it’s so good. It’s got that light, savory
meat sauce flavor in it, and it’s like salty, but
not too much, it’s perfect. This is pretty dang good. I’m gonna take a bite
with the bean sprouts. I love bean sprouts. Mmmm, mmmmmm. (big band music) Ohh, woo. Okay, I’m gonna give this bowl of noodle a four out of five noms. It’s pretty darn good. It tastes very traditional
and brings me back to my childhood. I’m loving it. Okay, now it’s time to try
the second noodle soup. Let’s go. (big band music) Hello you guys, we are
now trying our second Taiwanese noodle soup over here. And it’s actually one
of my favorites as well. All my food is my favorite. Mm, yeah. This noodle soup here is
called orh ah mee sua. Now what it’s got in here is
some wheat noodles right here. Don’t confuse it with rice vermicelli, because they’re very different. Rice vermicelli is made with brown rice. This right here is wheat. It is much darker. In here is also cilantro. I love cilantro. And we got some oyster
and some large intestine mixed in as well. The large intestine is
(speaks in Chinese). To be honest, cooked oyster,
I don’t know how I feel about that, the texture
is kind of weird to me. But I do love the intestine
in the soup right here. It’s really chewy and just so good. The thing about this noodle
soup that I particularly like is how the soup is really thick. It’s because they added
some tapioca powder in there to make that sticky, gooey soup right here that you see. (rhythmic music) ♪ Ooh yeah ♪ – Shall we take a bite? Yes, okay, let’s go. I want to get a big bite
with noodles and soup and intestines in there. Mmm, here we go. Mmmm. Oh, okay, okay, have to be honest. I wasn’t sure how good this
particular shop was because I haven’t tried it, but
I’ve tried the other two. But dang this is a good
bowl of oyster vermicelli. It really is delicious. I think the broth here
is especially light. A lot of times, these
vermicelli noodles, the broth is all really dark brown,
they probably put a lot of sauce in here, but this is just perfect. It’s quite wonderful. It just looks like chunks of yummyness. We’re gonna eat an oyster. I don’t know how I feel about this oyster, but I’m gonna put it in my mouth. Here we go. Mmm, oh, surprisingly really, really good. The oyster was quite pleasant. It kind of just melts in your mouth. Just a little bit of seafood taste. The soup is yummy, the
noodles are delicious. I’m such a noodle person. Okay, I’m gonna take another bite. Here we go. Mmmm, that’s yummy. If you’re trying to get to
this particular noodle shop, you have to walk all the way
down to this intersection, and then make a right. Make a right. I just, I don’t know my directions. Make a right and then
walk about 50 kilometers, and you’re gonna reach a
shop that sells stinky tofu and these oyster vermicelli. Oh boy, it really is so yummy. I’m a fan. I’m gonna give this noodle a
four out of five nom as well. And that was the second bowl
of noodle soup you must try here in Taiwan. Are your stomachs ready for the third one? Let’s go. (big band music) Oh yeah, noodle teleportation, oh yeah, oh yeah. We are at our final stop
trying our third and last noodle soup. This is one of my favorites. It is not just only one of
my favorite noodle soup, this particular restaurant
has some of the best (speaks in Chinese) I’ve ever tasted. Seriously, just take a look at this, can we get a little close up? Can we get some noodle bowl porn? (rhythmic music) ♪ Ooh yeah ♪ – If you try to search for this online, there’s not really an English name. I found a variation. I’m gonna call this the
pork rib noodle soup. This rib right here though,
it is actually pre-fried, so what you see around it is
a beautiful glistening batter. Oh yes. This particular shop,
why I love it so much, is that this spare rib right here, when you take a bite, it literally
just melts in your mouth. And the spare rib is so soft, you just chew right through it. It’s like magic. Let me show you what I mean. Mmm, mmmm. Oh meat is seasoned, the pepper spicy. It’s just so nice, so flavorful. Did you see how it just fell off? Look at this again. Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm. That chew, that bite right there, I literally just, I bit through the bone, I didn’t even need to chew it. Let me tell you something. When you come to this night market, you’re gonna see a shop that
sells (speaks in Chinese). Don’t get it from there. It’s not as good. This spot, this spot, is the spot, okay? Let’s try our favorite part, the noodles. Ooh, look at this, look
at this noodle skills. The spoon, noodles, right
there, you do a little spin. Oh, just kidding, never
mind, don’t follow, don’t do this at home,
never mind, oh shit. This looks so good. Mmm, ohh, this is literally perfection. It’s my favorite noodle soup
out of the three that we tried. This soup here is a beautiful pork broth. It is so good. It’s the kind of soup where
you take one spoonful, and you’re like I’ve got
to drink the whole thing. I always finish the broth. Mmm, just one more delicious
bite with the noodles, with the soup, ohh, oh
my gosh, here we go. Mmmm. You guys, this noodle soup
is a five out of five noms. You heard it here first. You guys have to check out
this restaurant right here. You won’t be disappointed, I promise. (big band music) Mmm, oh yeah. Alright cuties, so that was
three Taiwanese noodle soups you have to try if you are here in Taiwan. Now I want to know which one
of the three was your favorite. Comment below, and I’ll
comment something back. I’ll see you guys later. Bye. I’m gonna go ahead and
take another bite because darn that was yummy. Oh fuck, oh fuck it’s so hot. Oh fuck. I’m gonna take another (laughs). And I’m gonna show you
three Taiwanese noodle soups you must try. I gotta move out for this cart right here. Mmm, that Chinese pop song
in the background though. Am I gonna get a copyright? (big band music)

  1. Why is everything in Taipei? I feel like all the good eats and cute things are found in Taipei. This does nothing for me bc my family lives in Taichung. You should do segments in different parts of Taiwan. Btw, I go back 2 weeks from today for 18 days. Gonna eat my heart out.

  2. TJ, do you remember on which exact date this video was recorded? I think I know some people running through the background and would like to confirm lol

  3. Noodle teleportation??? Lol…I love that! You are great, very cheery and informative! I'm going to Taiwan in March and will be looking for some of these treats! Thanks! Btw, do you know where to find the ice cream, cilantro and peanut brittle burritos? They look amazing…
    My favorite noodle soup from this video is the last one, It looks delicious. I hope I can find the stall!

  4. I would like the second bowl of noodles, except with the spare ribs from the third bowl. 🙂 Thanks TJ. Loved the video. So much fun! You rock, girl! I'm definitely having noodles with my chicken strips and fried shrimp tonight. 🙂

  5. Maybe you should change your channel name to. 'NoodsofTJ' haha. Just luv yer channel TJ. I'm sure you are very smart, as well as bubbly and beautiful. Under the dorky exterior. Never change it tho! There's nothing wrong with a bit of food porn Lol. Can't think of any guy that would say no to noods of TJ. You are way hotter than that spoonful of broth, you burnt yourself with at the end of the video. As for that fried pork noodles. My mouth was salivating while you were eating it. Looked so yummy. Love pork ribs. Bet slices of Char Siu would be great with those noodles as well mmmm. Can't wait for your next video.

  6. You're telling me that the rib noodle soup is the best, but where is the exact address? You can write it in either English or Chinese if you like, that would be fine with me.

  7. Girllllll…. I found myself chewing along…😂 that's how good the vid was. I got transported to taiwan 😘

  12. Awesome video! I’m heading to Taipei soon and I would love to visit this eatery. What’s the official name of this establishment so I can tell the cab driver where to go ? Can I find this in trip advisor?

  13. Sorry ! correction! noodle was not dated as you mention from the Cheng Dynasty and not 130 years ago. It was dated back much much earlier during the Eastern Han dynasty around 25- 200 AD ! And recently newly discovered that a bowl of noodle was found in China dated back 4,000 years ago !

  14. CupTJ if you are running a food tour I will be there in a heart beat!!! Can I grab the address for the Pork rib noodle soup please?

  15. Can you leave your words on the screen for about 5 seconds. One or actually less than a second is not enough. I'm not that fast of a reader.

    not sure if i should eat or wait for breakfast! LOL

  17. Worked on an Oyster Boat in my 20's; had a "bad oyster" and haven't been able to eat them since.

  18. I never tried them but probably the third one will probably be my favourite look like my favourite thing in the whole world spaghetti but I know for a fact it isn’t look like that and and it looks so good and I have to actually guess not because I’ll get it looked
