On its own, Happy Stony Noodle’s Taiwanese beef soup will awaken your inner carnivore. It’s made with beef neck, a ton of spinach, and smooth, ivory-colored noodles. But add some of the green fermented mustard condiment on the table (suan cai), and you’ll understand why this sour, meaty broth party should qualify for the hypothetical Now That’s What I Call Soup Volume 1. This is one of the best single dishes you can eat in Elmhurst.
