In 1925, a famine broke out in Japan. The government then, decided that Japan had to increase its food production, and they also decided that Taiwan shall be Japan's food basket. With this policy, great emphasis was placed on developing Taiwan agriculture. (Taiwan was then a Japanese colony.)

During the Second World War, large store houses were built in the cities to stockpile food. One such was built in Songshan for Taipei city.

Fast forward to 2013, the long abandoned store house at Songshan was rebuilt and re-purposed as No. 1 Food Theater Cuisine 一号糧倉. While the building was largely rebuilt, the basic design and structure like the high ceiling was retained. The scars of the war like bullet holes were left intact as a sign of respect.

Importantly, the spirit of the store house was kept intact. The store house now retails the best of Taiwan agricultural produce - specialising in organics. The restaurants in No. 1 Food Theater Cuisine use these Taiwan produce to make good food with Chinese, Italian, French and other culinary traditions. In 2018, No. 1 Food Theater Cuisine 一号糧倉 was awarded the Bib Gourmand in the inaugural Taipei Michelin Guide.

No. 1 Food Theater Cuisine has a wide ranging menu. One of its signature dishes is their interpretation of the iconic Taiwanese beef noodles.

It's springy hand made noodles at the bottom of the bowl, topped with a large tender juicy beef short rib and served with piping hot rich beefy herbal broth.

It is a must to phone in ☎ +886 2 2775 1689 to book your No. 1 Food Theater Cuisine beef noodles because they are all fully booked out everyday 😱 There is no chance of tasting this by walking in 😂
