TAIWANESE BEEF NOODLE @ INFOBOOTH CAFE & TEA, 108 LT. BOURKE ST., MELBOURNE

Ever since I've been in Melbourne, I've been hearing good vibes on the Taiwanese beef noodle of this establishment. It's been compared to Yang Tai-Tai's noodle from Springs Garden in Kuching. But the only problem is that I haven't been able to sink my teeth into one; they don't make the noodle everyday. I've tried only 3 separate occasions (everytime I pass by) but to no avail. The doc managed to have a bowl the night before when he called to check on its availability. Well, today is our lucky day!

Whatever comparison there is to Kuching's beef noodle, they are wrong on all counts. This one is far superior - the best I've tasted so far. First off, its broth is not of the soy sauce tinted color. Its aroma is subtle, without the hint of star anise, cinnamon or any other spices associated with the broth. Lastly, its chunks of beef are pink in color, like those of corned beef, which exude a flavor that is akin to that the Chinese canned Kou-Yuk
marinade (if you've ever eaten one, you'll know what I mean). Halleluyah... You've got to try to believe!


This place is more of a Chinese books/comics rental place than an eatery. Those familiar with the Star Bookstore will know the concept of the place. The cafe is an extension to the concept, where one can come in and chill out. As the sign below the counter (top right) implies...


Relax,
Don't do it,
When you gonna come!

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
