永康街牛肉麵_beef noodle master

永康街牛肉麵 has 40+ years of experience in cooking beef noodle soup, they also have really good appetizers, such as steamed spareribs with rice flower, which is a must try. You can choose stewed beef noodle soup, which is mild. Or the brown sauce noodle soup that has a more savory and intense flavor... read more

Went once, and went back the following day to grab another portion. Wonderful flavour, without the cloying taste of MSG which makes your throat get thirsty. Always has a queue snaking outside, but the turnover is quick quick. Maximum 15 minutes wait. I usually dont queue for food, but this is worth it!

Famous beef noodle restaurant in Taipei. I really enjoyed the beef noodle soup ( half beef and half beef tendon). I ordered medium spicy and it was fine. The soup base was flavorful. We picked out other side dishes as well and they were OK. You will definitely see a line during peak hours. The price was reasonable. I definitely... More

I really enjoyed the beef noodles and other items. They have a simple menu and service is incredibly fast. The beef was tender and had excellent flavor. The place is small but tables turn over quickly. This is not a place you would hang around for a lengthy meal. I'd say the average person was in and out in 30... More

Be prepared to wait a while if you're coming here during peak hours, but the beef noodles are truly worth the wait! The beef is incredibly tender and the noodles nice and chewy. I would recommend the spicy beef, delicious!

This is the most famous beef noodle place among Korean tourists. It was a bit hard to find, but once you find it, you will see a very long que. Please note that it is worth waiting in line. But if you don't like to eat in a very noisy place, this wouldn't be a good choice.

Personally feel that it is pretty average. Obviously the star of the shop is the soupy beef noodles. tried also the noodles with minced meat sauce (Zha Jiang Mien) which was too much noodles and too little sauce in my opinion. Mostly tourist crowd.

My hubby is a fussy eater and this stall's beef noodles blows him away! The beef is super tender! Non beef eaters like myself have other food to choose from.

Don't be daunted by the long lines outside. This place is an institution in Taipei and know how to turn tables with quick service. There were about 15 people in line when we arrived. We were in the restaurant within 10 minutes. Part of the reason why is that they get the food onto your table seemingly before you're even... More
