Trying a $ 321 Bowl of Soup


Beef noodle soup is a staple throughout Taiwan. You’ll pay around $ 6 for a bowl at most restaurants in Taipei. But you’ll fork over $ 321 for the elite beef noodle soup at Niu Ba Ba. Yes, $ 321. For. One. Bowl. Why so expensive? Well, for starters, it is made with high-quality wagyu beef. If it’s too pricey for you, there are options — a premium beef noodle soup that costs $ 160 a bowl and a classic version that goes for under $ 20. While the restaurant has fixed prices now, there was a time when customers could pay whatever they wanted for the soup. One diner chose to pay close to $ 1,000, which makes $ 321 sound like a bargain.
