Beef broth is very good and beef is good (unfortunately they don't offer beef tendon), but the main reason for coming here is for the knife shaved noodles. The fresh knife shaved noodles are very good; they are thick and have a chewy texture. Recently,...they have acquired a robot to shave the noodles, which is rather entertaining to watch. The owner/chef is very nice. Service is fast.More

We were fortunate to be traveling with some friends from Taiwan on this trip. Our first choice of restaurant had a queue a mile long so our friends suggested going here. Very Little wait and excellent food. The broth was savory, the noodles hearty, and...just the right amount of spicy beef. This was our first time eating cut noodles and it did not disappoint.More

The spicy mixed beef noodles are to die for! Best beef noodles I've ever had. We went at 10am and there was no queue so get there a bit earlier if you aren't willing to line up for a long time.

While in search of the best bowl of noodles in Taipei we came upon this restaurant today. First, the restaurant: as others have stated it is pretty small and very basic. There weren't many people there when we arrived at half eleven but it filled...up as we were eating. The menu is simple and posted on the wall with photos. Next, the food: we each had a bowl of beef and noodles~ one with plain broth and one with the tomato broth. As noted in another review, the small bowl was ample. The beef was indeed served out in large, tender chunks and tasted ok. The plain broth was much more flavourful than the tomato broth and I regretting getting the tomato. Also as noted, the noodles, while fresh and "springy" were very large and difficult to eat as noodles. I ended up eating one at a time rather than making a miserable mess. This is not a bad establishment but there are others within a stone's throw that are much better (in my opinion).More

The famous beef noodle shop around this area was closed for renovations so we decided to go to this place instead. We all got beef noodle soup. The shaved noodle texture was thick and chewy. My dad didnt like the consistency of it but i...personally liked it. It was harder to eat with chopsticks though.More

There are many great beef noodle shops in the Yong Kang area. We went to YongKang Beef Noodle Shop and this one, the Daoxiao Noodle shop. "Daoxiao" just means "knife-shaved noodles (pared or shaved into strips)." The names are quite similar so let's call the...first one "Restaurant 1" and the Daoxiao shop as "Restaurant 2." My father and husband preferred Restaurant 1, which serves a classic Sichuan style noodle dish with a spicy soup base. The clear broth noodle is also on the menu but I didn't try it. Restaurant 2 is more Shanxi style which I prefer. The Daoxiao noodles are thicker and chewier, and the broth is more clear, like a consumme. Everyone agreed that Restaurant 1 had higher quality beef which is super tender. The seating at Restaurant 2 is more spacious and comfortable. Or perhaps it's because we were there after the peak lunch hours. Restaurant 2 was also more airy and clean. The menu at Restaurant 2 is also slightly more varied. Sour and spicy noodle or Zhajiang (minced pork) noodle Peking style are also on offer if you want something other than beef noodles. The prices at both places are very similar, so it's really a matter of personal preferences to decide which one to go to. Or try both if you are into sampling beef noodles like we do. The shops are very close to each other.More

Love this place! Good fast service. Good soup. Not over-priced. Usually not much of a line either. Check it out.

We were looking for beef noodles in Yong Kang street area & wasn't sure if there were any. Walking into a nice shop in Lane 10, we asked the lady owner. Her shop is just directly opposite this restaurant & she recommended us to try...them as they have beef noodles & is "quite good". She mentioned this place is very popular. We tried the Tomato Beef noodle soup & Soy Bean Paste over noodle, plus a side dish. The tomato beef noodle soup was nice but didn't really like the thick noodles ( more like pasta). Same as for the other dish. 10 minutes after we went in about 5.30pm, the place was full. There were only 5 people when we came, including us. It's not bad as mentioned but the noodles wasn't up to our liking.More

We dropped by for a snack and just shared one bowl of their beef tomato sliced noodle soup between the two of us. Yum. I could taste the noodles are fresh. But the best part is definitely the tomato broth. Not oily, not too salty....You can tell that it's a really good broth and good for you. Well done - noodles, beef, stewed tomatoes... and an amazing broth! Would definitely drop in again!More

The restaurant has been around for 30+ years. They have very simple menu so you need not worry not knowing what to order. The beef they make is super tender and succulent. We went at 3:30 and was able to get in without lining up....Usually it takes a long time to. They closed shortly after we entered so we were very lucky. It will be a huge loss if you go to Taiwan without trying this.More
