Here’s a new one from Taiwan! Taihodien Restaurant is known as a hot pot place that has some of t he spiciest stuff out there. Here’s a bit about the restaurant from their website:

“Taihodien was the name of the palace where the emperors of the Qing dynasty held court. Since its establishment in 1994, Taihodien Restaurant has worked to ensure that its customers can enjoy the quality of service and savor the taste of food fit for an emperor. The restaurant only uses the finest quality materials in the hope and expectation that visitors from around the world will always carry the memory of Taiwan’s good flavors on their taste buds. Coming to Taihodien Restaurant to partake of the Taiwanese passion for gourmet dining is like attending a dinner held by the United Nations. The world of the gourmet knows no boundaries; we welcome all comers to share in this special dining experience.
Taihodien Restaurant’s spicy chili soup is smooth and mild, and low in dryness and heat; it can be enjoyed even in the summer. The stock is made with all natural ingredients. Our famous soft duck blood pudding tofu is made with a triple stewing process—alternately bringing it to a boil and then slow-marinating three times. Bring your family and friends to come and taste our natural, quality flavors.”

Sounds impressive! Maybe I’ll have to visit next time in Taiwan! Let’s have a look.

Spicy oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Chinese sausage and coriander. The noodles are narrower than a lot of dry noodles and have a pleasant chew to them I really like. The flavor is very intense. If you like Sichuan peppercorn flavor, you’re in for a treat. For me, I will have to admit it’s just too much of an inundation of Sichuan peppercorn – just way way too much for it to me enjoyable taste-wise. However, it’s seriously impressive spicy-wise. This one packs a punch to be sure! 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710006581651.

    one of the best i’ve ever had! i respect your opinion but damn…i was hoping you would agree with me. it was perfectly spiced…I have been a fan of sichuan cuisine since I had my first taste of kung pao chicken at 10 years old to becoming a chef working at a 5 star restaurant in chengdu as my sabbatical. this is truly an amazing bowl of noodles that still brings me back to chengdu for me
