Great beef noodle!

Beef was tender and falls apart in your mouth. Broth was beefy and savory. Absolutely great soup base. Not greasy Spicy wonton was not that great. Overall, loved it. Will come back again. Large bowl of beef noodle and spicy wonton came to 340ntd.

I found the braised beef noodles to be average, wasn't my favourite dish of the trip. Overall was still OK, worthy trying once, but I personally didn't understand the hype around this famous dish.

This place is "famous" and packed like it deserves it. I thought it was good, but it wasn't my absolute favorite. That title actually goes to a little basement shop in Shanghai. Regardless, for the uninitiated, this place serves up some mean fare and is recommended.

I've eaten a fair share of beef noodles in Taiwan, and its absolutely accurate to say that it's by far the best beef noodles i've had in Taipei. I would have to admit that it's a little costly. A bowl of beef noodles ranges from 230 - 300 NTD but it's a pretty huge portion and i've seen two girls... More

Been here four times. One of the best braised beef noodles in Taipei (better than Dingtaifung in my humble opinion). Great broth, melt in your mouth tendons and braised beef, al dente noodles, and the key ingredient was definitely the preserved vegetables which added so much depth, flavours and textured. Other dishes are not worth trying. Also, not worth queuing... 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!

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, don't forget to add the pickled vegetables... More

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!
