You can start your meal off right with a small menu of tantalising chilled appetisers.
All appetisers are priced at $2.60 each (Sugarcoated Whitebait / Chilled Bittergourd / Chilled Pickled Lettuce / Chilled Crunchy Cucumber / Chilled Long Beans / Chilled Pickled Tomatoes / Chilled Silken Tofu with Century Egg).
Malted Black Tea / Apple Black Tea ($2.80 each)
Taiwan is famous for its tea, and you will not surprised to find a native variety of black tea at LeNu.
Go for the braised fresh beef noodle soup for authentic texture. Otherwise, settle for well-marbled beef brisket which will be just as flavourful and become very tender after stewing.
Do not miss out the homemade dipping sauce (not featured), which is the perfect condiment that will further elevate the taste and richness of the beef. It could be a little salty on the first taste, then mild spicy and finally, a sweet pleasant aftertaste.
The chilled pickled tomatoes and chilled crunchy cucumbers are recommended. They are tastefully appetising and great for starting off your meals.
LeNu had recreated the Taiwan beef noodles to suit the local palate, therefore the overall taste was not as salty and intense compared to those I had in Taipei.
If you have not had beef noodles in Taiwan before, LeNu is a good place to start with.
