MRT ZHONGXIAO DUNHUA Station (忠孝敦化站)

[This post will be updated if new information about places around the station comes available. 🙂 ]

“Orchid Pavilion Cold Noodles” (蘭花亭涼麵)

Located under Zhongzheng Bridge, opened way back in 1966, the signature dish here is the original-flavor cold noodles. Other options include fried-bean paste, fruit, and XO (brandy) sauce variations. The owner, who loves dreaming up new flavors, uses pineapple, cherry, honey peach, etc., adds konjac for extra taste and texture, and adds a special-sauce topping for a refreshing and delicious treat. The XO sauce brings a lightly spicy seafood flavor, savory and appetizing. The owner also specially adds a bit of mustard atop noodles, adding tasty zestiness to the sesame sauce.
