The restaurant Yi Mian Noodles looked very familiar to us when we were wandering at Datong area but we never stepped into the restaurant. Later on we googled Yi Mian Noodles, we came to realization that we missed out a decent food! Hence to prevent regret later, on the last morning prior going back to Malaysia, we purposely took MRT to Beimen just for a brunch here.
As the restaurant name suggested, we ought to order their signature Yi noodles (30 NTD). The texture of the noodles were chewy, the noodles were pleasant in taste and eating it alone without any condiments were just nice. It comes with sweet chili sauce for those who prefer a stronger taste but we were fine without it.
Wanton Yi Noodles (50 NTD) taste alike our wanton mee in Malaysia, with the soup slightly catered for individual who prefers a salty taste. Dry version of yi noodles would better in terms of showcasing the springiness of the noodles.
Their fishball soup (35 NTD) was different from others as the fishballs come with meat fillings. We have to say this is one of the biggest fishball we have come across, and the texture of the fishballs were akin like buns soaked in soup.
Yi Mian Noodles is famous of its affordable price which we have testified and there is always a crowd waiting here. The shop is quite small and do have a feeling squeezing here there during dining here.

We saw a shop selling cold noodles opposite the Yi Mian restaurant and since we were deeply in love with this dish upon trying it at convenience store, we would like to taste this manmade dish tastes like. Anyhow, we were not full as portion at Yi Mian restaurant was rather small.
Of course the cold noodles (30 NTD) were served cold, and the noodles were not clumped together like the one we had at convenient store. It obviously taste better and made us wonder where could we get the best cold noodles at Taiwan?
During our few days at Taipei, we realised this 85 Degree Bakery has been mushrooming in Taiwan and it is almost present at every neighborhood. Curiosity drove us there to order a cheese cake (38 NTD), which is really affordable and signature cold coffee regular size (60 NTD). Quite a decent choice to get an excuse to rest our exhausted leg.
