You have to try it, once you're in Taipei for whatever cost!!! It's on Yong Kang Road, closed to Dong Men Metro Station. Trust me, I've been around, tried few other but none on par with this Yong Kang Beef noodle, also try the Hong Sao Chao dumplings and pork ribs. They also have few other cold dishes, the restaurant... More

I loved this place. My experience wasn't your standard one though. I was actually waiting for a table at din tai fung around the corner but was told it was going to be an hour so I went to share a bowl of beef noodles with my GF. We did this because I had heard so much about this place.... More

The dumplings had some sesame sauce and the flavour just grows on you! Beef noodles were of... More

It opens at 4:30pm everyday for dinnertimes. And at 4:45 pm it was already full and plus a queue. The beef is tender and noodle chewy but not one of the best I have ever eaten, considering the reputation and the pricing. Still, since beef noodles is a must-try in Taiwan. although I really don't understand why. I have tried... More

Having heard that Yong Kang beef noodles was one of best in Taipei, we decided to have it for lunch on a Sunday. It took us a while to locate the eatery from Dong Men station but once we saw the queue and the large sign, we immediately joined the queue. We waited for about 20 mins before we were... More

I prefer Lao Wang Ji to this one. The meat is not as tasty, it's lower quality and the portions are unbalanced. I ordered the half tendon half beef and it came basically just with tendon. I like it but if it's just that it gets boring. The broth is slightly spicy. I also tasted the pork rib with rice.... More

Before our departure, we have done our search for the BEST beef noodles in Taiwan and surely Yong Kang has been crowned to have the oldest recipe and most liked/frequented by all beef noodle fans locally and abroad. Locating the place is no small feat as it's not really located on Yong Kang Street. After asking a few people, we... More

There is a perpetual queue outside this beef noodle shop. Piqued by curiosity, we joined the queue which moved fairly quickly. While the beef stew was indeed tender and one of its kind, the noodles lacked body. They are also rather stingy with the soup, which barely covered the noodles. We also ordered the steamed pork ribs which were equally... More

One of the few beef noodle place you must try. Go there during off hours or be prepare to wait. It is in the well known Yong Kong road where you can find any cuisine, tea house, desert, bakery, etc.

Took awhile to locate the cafe. All worth it. One of the best beef noodles we've ever tasted. The dumplings were very tasty as well. Definitely recommended.
