Oh.. this is so interesting. It's the Taiwanese version of "mee tai mak" 米苔目 or "rat tail noodles".

But, here in Taiwan mee tai mak is not short and pointy but long like thick bee hoon (the kind we use in laksa in Singapore). Like their Singapore and Malaysia counterpart, Taiwan mee tai mak 米苔目 is made with rice flour.

Owner 黃宗義 started working at age 15 at the mee tai mak stall which his father founded. 黃宗義 is in his 70s now (2018). Wife 陳秋月 partners 黃宗義 at the stall since she was 18 years old. Now, they are joined by their children and their spouses (so the stall is in it's third generation now).

The mee tai mak is served in a bowl of pork soup. It is topped with chopped scallion, crispy fried shallot and fried krill for their toasty savoury flavours.

Mee tai mak is served with various cuts of boiled fresh pork meat, trotter, skin, intestines, stomach, ears, snout, etc as side dishes. The essence in the broth from cooking these pork parts sweetens the wonderful stock of 條仔老店米苔目's mee tai mak. There is also braised tofu for sides.

黃宗義 serves his mee tai mak and pork side dishes with a soy sauce based dip into which he added various condiments including sugar and chili. Each plate of pork is dressed with a handful of julienned bamboo shoot.

黃宗義's mee tai mak has many fans including many from overseas.
