Do you like beef noodles? If the answer is "yes," then maybe you should go to the World Trade Center in Taipei this weekend.
On Sunday people from Taiwan and other countries will be getting together to have a big cook-off. And what will they be cooking? You've guessed it — beef noodles!
Each team has one captain and two team members. They have just three hours to make twelve bowls of beef noodles for the judges to try. In those hours they must get ready, cook and clean up!
They are only allowed to bring a thin soup and seasoning with them — everything else must be made there and then. They will be scored on how the noodles look, smell and taste. The judges are also looking for creativity, a good balance between the noodles, soup and beef, and how clean and tidy the teams are. The winners get a trophy and medals.
Imagine being a judge and getting to try all those different beef noodles! Yummy!
