We've tried several well-known noodles in Taibei. Have to say this one is the best! The 5 star rating is not for it's noodles but for it's beef ! If you are a finicky eater , you probably will say the noodles itself is average which I will agree. However, no one can deny the beef is large and yummy!!!... More

Long queue, good reviews online. But honestly I was quite disappointed with the noodle's texture. The soup broth was just okay. The side dishes were also average... :(

Came here as recommended by my hotel. It was not easy to find as it's behind the Main Street and in between some small lane. I asked a few people who were kind enough to point me in the right direction. I was there at 1150 and there were already a small queue. As I was alone, they easily seated... More

Coming from the US, I have had a lot of bland beef noodle soup with chewy beef/tendon and imperfect noodles. Welcome to the antithesis of that. Tender, melt in our mouth beef and tendon with moderately spicy but intensely flavorful broth. Noodles are fresh with great texture. Line outside goes fast. Get the marinated eggplant appetizer. Great flavor & texture.

This famous beef noodle diner ranks among the top ten in Taipei. It is located along one of the alleys near Dongmen MRT Station's exit 3 (Yong Kang Street is next to exit 5). If you lose your way, just ask any local pedestrian and they will point you in the right direction. Be prepared: • to queue at dinner... More

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

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
