Nuoromein, meaning ‘beef-style noodle’, is Taiwan’s favorite snack and you can find it on most street food stands throughout the island. Ask anyone on the street and they all have an opinion about this dish. Everyone is very passionate about what ingredients go into it and how they like it with extra chilies, so there are a few variations. The dish is based on the style of cooking from Sichuan province in China and it fuses plenty of chilies, garlic and ginger to make a fiery snack. Of course, you can adjust the amount of chilies to your liking but you would be missing out on la pièce de résistance!
