If you know me at all you’ll know that beef tendon noodle soup is one of my favorite foods of all time.  Bring me a good bowl of hearty sizzling hot beef noodle soup and I’ll love you forever (just kidding… but call me maybe?). Haha alright I know I'm not that funny. Anyway, as you might have guessed, I’m always on a search for the best beef noodle soup in town no matter where I go (my favorite so far is Happy Nouilles in Paris)!

Ji Heng Noodles (吉亨麵館) is an expanding chain in Shanghai that specializes in Taiwanese beef noodles. After the tremendous success and popularity of their first store on 433 Guyang Rd (古羊路433号), they have expanded to all areas of Shanghai. Currently there are over 8 branches around the city.

  Marinated pork knuckle, Taiwanese style 台式卤猪脚 (¥24RMB)  My favorite side dish! Get your fix of natural collagen and beautify your skin. It's cooked to perfection.

  Pot Roast Beef Tendon Noodle Soup 红烧牛筋面 (¥32RMB)  To make a great bowl of beef noodle soup, the smell of it should already make you salivate. The broth should be aromatic, rich, and savory. Slightly spicy would be nice too. It should be slowly braised with tender pieces of beef (or tendon in my case) and of course, full of freshly housemade noodles.  The broth could be slightly stronger but I like that it's not overly salty. The noodles can be ordered either thick or thin. Noodles here are thick.
