Traditional, new noodle shops named among Taipei's top 20

Traditional, new noodle shops named among Taipei's top 20

The Taipei City Department of Economic Development announced the city's most popular beef noodle restaurants in Taipei yesterday, representing a mix of old and new shops as well as tradition and creativity, a department spokesman said.
The spokesman made the remarks while the department presented a flag for each of the top five traditional and top five creative beef noodle restaurants, all of which will vie for honors in the final cooking championship at the Taipei World Trade Center November 4-5.
Since some questioned last year's election as being unfair by only collecting ballots via the Internet, this year chefs and gourmets were invited to select the top 20 from 30 restaurants voted as the best on the Internet, the spokesman said.
Among the winners, some are shops with long histories - such as Old Chang's and the Yongkang Beef Restaurant - while some are particularly recommended on the Internet, such as Old Dong's thin beef noodles and Hsu's golden beef noodle, the spokesman said.
Besides taste, a customer service evaluation is a new part of this year's scoring process, the spokesman said, adding that some restaurants were highly praised on the Internet last year but failed in this year's election due to keeping evaluators waiting for a long time, such as Chuanwang Restaurant and Master Hong's.
Several promotional events will also be held as part of the competition, including that the first 100 people to patronize these selected restaurants will get a bottle of Coke for only NT$5, and a free beef-noodle testing will be organized for aficionados during the upcoming cooking competition, the spokesman said.
