There are stories in Taiwan of the legendary chef who has been dubbed "The King of Taiwanese Beef Noodle." According to lore (and their website) this man has garnered many awards, including multiple wins over multiple years for his soup at the Taipei International Taiwanese Beef Noodle Festival. The prize-winning concoction can now be sipped in Irvine, and it is a lovely bowl indeed, containing chewy, thicker-than-linguine noodles in a tangy, almost too-sweet dark-as-tea broth. The beef is of the kind that collapses under its own weight, and tastes like it should--it's almost your mom's pot roast except imbued with the scent of star anise. Other items are, of course, required for ordering, even if they're not award-winning. The onion pancakes are chewy-crisp. The juicy pork dumplings aren't really that juicy but decent. And they make a simple rice with soy-sauce seasoned ground pork that would win an award for homeyness if they gave out such a thing.
