Well worth the wait!

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

Such succulent & tender beef! I prefer the clear soup but you may prefer the slightly spicy brown broth version. Some side dishes are available as well. Its rather old & run down but well worth the gastronomical treat.

If you're with company who don't mind sharing, try both the Clear Soup version as well as the usual braised (brown soup) version. Different but both are really good. Don't forget the appetizer plates. Help yourself and declare later what you've taken. I like the cold pigs ears but your mileage may vary!

The beef noodles here come in the dark broth version, and it packs a real punch. On each table is a huge metal container of preserved vegetables, which are a must-add to your bowl of beef noodles for a delicious, salty, savoury kick. For beef noodles, Yong Kang Beef Noodles is a bit pricier than usual, but is well worth... More

Ok enough but this beef noodles was overrated and not worth queuing for. The beef was not tender enough and the soup did not give the oomph... I very much prefer the beef noodles from Lin Dong Fang instead.
