A beef noodle soup dish, commonly referred to as ban mian, at a restaurant in Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province, China has gone viral for its ridiculously expensive price tag of 13,800 yuan ($2,015) per bowl.
The dish contains four ingredients that come from the “sky, land, and sea,” Sin Chew Daily reported via AsiaOne.
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.
