Ban Dao beef noodles is my recently beef noodles recommendation, located near Taipei City Hall MRT station. They emphasise no MSG or beef extract for their beef noodles, I like their beef noodles a lot.
We chose some appetizers after ordering beef noodles. Fried tofu with beef sauce and seaweed are tasty. Taiwanese kimchi is surprisingly good! Not too sour, with a bit of garlic flavor, delicious.

The taste of broth wins my heart right after the first sip, besides beef, it has the sweetness from tomato and radish, they use the veggies sweetness to replace MSG, I like it a lot. You can choose thick or thin noodles, I chose the thick one and it’s smooth with a bit of chewiness. Beef shank is big and tender scented with nice soy marinate, beef tendon is tender and flavorful too! Overall this is an excellent beef noodles, would like to come back for sure.
