BeefNoodle

It’s been over a decade since I was last in Asia – and yet, I can still taste Taiwan’s Beef noodle. Hailed as the country’s national dish, Beef Noodle is more than just the sum of its names; it’s a dish with a long national heritage; packed to bursting with exquisite and sumptuous flavours that belie its simple ingredients.

Made using red braised beef – where brisket and shank are slow cooked in soy, star anise, black cardamom, cassia, fennel seeds and often, a dash of Sichuan pepper – the soft and tender, melt in the mouth beef is accompanied by a flavourful, umami beef broth and freshly made noodles. It looks simple, but it’s a hearty, satisfying flavour explosion.

In Other News: Party like it’s 1666, DriVRclub is still on the way, play Super Mario 3 from across the room and Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines is back to suck your blood.

      Nope. Geoff is very specific when food is involved. This is a Taiwanese dish, Ramen is Japanese.

        True Story! I do love Ramen though; big fan of tonkotsu ramen – where the broth is made using pork bones. Stellar. This is a spicier, less delicate thing.
