Idiot Travels to Taiwan, Pays $329 For the World’s Most Expensive Beef Noodle Soup

Beef Noodle Soup is probably the most iconic dish in Taiwanese Cuisine. While it was first created by the Hui people, a Chinese Muslim ethnic group during the Tang Dynasty, the red braised beef version was created by veterans who fled from mainland China to Taiwan after the Chinese Civil War.

In most places in Taiwan, you’ll rarely find a bowl priced over 240 New Taiwan dollars ($7.80). However, one shop in Taipei has made headlines for charging up to 10,000 New Taiwan dollars ($329) for a bowl of beef noodle soup.
