Mr food hunter just checked out with 2 fillings from the dentist so he had to forgo his default order of deep fried chicken fillet rice. He returned to ordering taiwanese Beef Brisket noodles and Miss food hunter had the "Gong Wan" soup with rice.
Beef noodle soup is infamous in Taiwan and though we may not have visited the country, we have tried a fair number of taiwanese beef noodle soups from around the sunnybank and calamvale areas for good comparisons. We do not have a strong preference for one or the other. In fact, we appreciate the fact that every taiwnese restaurant is somewhat different in their spice (star anise, cloves, chillies, pepper) level and unctuousness of their broth. Shin Yuan's is a lighter rendition without a greasy mouthfeel but by no means shy of spice.
