Menqian Yin Wei Beef Noodle Restaurant (門前隱味牛肉麵) – This Hidden Gem Serves One of the Best Beef Noodles in Taipei

March 27, 2024

Tucked away in the unique setting of the Sanchong Air Force Military Kindred Village in Taipei, Menqian Yin Wei Beef Noodle Restaurant (門前隱味牛肉麵) is a hidden gem that has captured the hearts of both locals and visitors alike.


This little beef noodle shop, with its unassuming exterior, holds an incredible reputation for serving some of the best beef noodles in the city — which has led to it being fully booked until 2025. The challenge of securing a spot at this coveted eatery only adds to the anticipation and excitement of the dining experience.

The intimate nature of the shop becomes immediately evident once we got there — there are just six seats available indoors and a very limited number outside. Guests can choose between thick or thin handmade noodles, and to add spiciness to their beef noodles. The meal is completed with a selection of small side dishes and a refreshing drink, creating a well-rounded and satisfying meal.




The signature dish, the thick braised beef soup, is a comforting, hearty stew filled with a variety of vegetables such as tomatoes, radishes, and carrots, as well as generous pieces of beef and tendon.

The depth of flavour in the soup was remarkable — a result of the meticulous process of adding fresh ingredients to the same pot over an extended period(now over 3210 days). The rich collagen-filled broth, tender beef, perfectly soft vegetables, and expertly-cooked noodles came together harmoniously, and was absolutely delicious.


The process of booking a table, the anticipation of the visit, and the joy of finally sitting down to enjoy the meal all contributed to a dining experience that felt particularly rewarding. Watching the chef in action in that cozy space definitely enhanced the overall experience as well.
