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.

This restaurant is very simple, but the food is excellent! After queuing outside in the rain, we had lunch here, and it was really worth the wait. We tried the braised beef noodles, and chopped pork ribs - both were wonderful. We also had the dumplings which were good but not great. The restaurant has free filtered water, and they... More

People say that good food is always memorable. Which is why I can say that the beef noodles in this restaurant is a serious must try! The ambiance is simple but the good is extravagantly delicious

I have been to the restaurant many times for the past 15 years. 紅燒牛肉麵 is still perfect.

Due to religion issue, I couldn't take beef. But all my friends wanted to try this shop during our Taiwan Trip. Tried something porky instead of beefy in this restaurant. Still, Thumbs up!! Their SMALL bowl is normal size for me, while BIG bowl is seriously HUGE!

Definitely one of the best braised beef i've ever tried. the noodle and the broth was not up to my expectations though. I ordered the red beef noodle(NTD$220/USD 7.33 for small portion) which...

A popular and local noodles shop. I tried beef noodles with red soup. This is yummy. It looks like hot spicy soup but it's less spicy. Beef is well boiled and so juicy. Yummy Noodles are different from any Japan's one.

We went to Yong Kang beef noodles (永康牛肉麵) for lunch, being aware of its reputation as one of the best beef noodle shops in Taipei. We were not disappointed. We knew that long queues could be expected around the usual dining times, so we deliberately went there a little later, at about 2pm. We were delighted that there was only... More
