(Closed Down) First Mazendo restaurant was opened near Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall MRT station on 2010. It expanded quickly in Taipei city area under one of the largest Taiwanese food service companies’ management. Besides noodles, they also sell dumplings and rice. This time is to visit the one located at Dunhua Eslite Bookstore B1.
麻膳堂顧名思議就是可以讓你的味覺辣到麻, 所以為了挑戰, 就點了招牌麻辣牛肉片麵套餐.
Mazendo in Chinese literally means a restaurant that can numb your taste buds. Therefore, I ordered their signature dish – Mala Spicy Sliced Beef Noodle Deluxe Set.
English Name: Mala Spicy Sliced Beef Noodle Deluxe Set
Price: NTD $250
Foodelcious 美味程度: 🍜🍜🍜
跟其他麻辣火鍋一樣, 湯頭是用花椒和其他香料烹煮而成, 但是麻膳堂將湯頭單一辣度升級為麻與辣的雙重口感 , 至於辣度的部分, 如果你很能吃辣, 我會建議中辣, 因為我點了小辣 ,喝了兩口湯, 麻到我已經沒有味覺.這道菜的主角雖然不是Q彈麵條,嫩牛肉片, 吸滿香辣湯頭的鴨血與豆皮或是滿滿的青蔥與豆芽, 但是配料好吃的程度一點也不馬虎. 我會建議點麻辣牛肉麵簡餐 ($210), 套餐 ($250)雖然包括蒸餃, 小黃瓜和紅豆點心 , 但是其實麻到有點吃不太出來蒸餃和紅豆點心原始的口味, 簡餐部分則包括小黃瓜. 也建議帶國外客戶來吃因為可以讓外國人以最短時間享受到台灣的麻辣雙重湯頭!
Like every restaurant, the soup base contains Sichuan Peppercorns, Bell Pepper, and several spices (cardamon, ginger, garlic..etc). However, their recipe upgrades the singular spicy taste to spicy and numb taste buds. You can also choose spicy scale – “mild, medium, regular”. If you love spicy food, I would recommend the medium level in case you can not handle the regular spicy flavor scale. They use the sliced beef instead of beef shank or brisket. If you don’t want sliced beef, you can order another dish called “Noodles in Red roasted soup with braised beef brisket”. However, I rather order Mala Spicy Sliced Beef Noodle to taste other ingredients, such as duck blood, dried bean sheet, green onions and bean sprouts.The deluxe set ($250) includes steamed dumpling, pickles and red bean dessert. But I would recommend to order the regular set ($210), which comes with only pickles. Also, this restaurant environment is great to bring foreign business partners because they can try various Taiwanese cuisine in a short amount of time due to the tight meeting schedule.
