Decided to try this famous noodle shop so we could see what all the fuss was about. We chose to go at about 2pm on a weekday, the queue was not too bad. My husband and I shared a large bowl of half beef tendon/half meat noodles and a steamed rice/sparerib thingy in a small bamboo case. The tendon/beef chunks... More

I visited this place a few times, and each time, I find the experience to be pleasant just the same. Be ready to wait in long line for a table even on a weeknight but once you sit down, tried their famous beef noodle soup with tendons. The soup was very, very flavorful and spicy but in a good way...

Pretty decent beef noodles. Given varying taste buds amongst different people when it comes to beef noodles, I would recommend at least a try to see if Yong Kang's matches your particular tastes. While you're there, the side dishes are also worth a try. Place is decent size, with 2 floors, but go early to avoid the long line. Like... More

Not by any chance a fancy restaurant. Just an old establishment - small shop with small tables which you may have to share with others ( I think). Had the small serving of spicy tendon and beef noodles - for a small eater the serving is more than sufficient. The soup is only mildly spicy so it should still be... More

We ordered 2 types of noodles and 2 appetizers. They were a bit too much for us but we had no regrets! The waiters were efficient and friendly enough given their many customers. The food was amazing! We couldn't have picked a better place for our first meal in Taipei!

It is known to be one of the best and to us it is...the meat is so soft that you won't need much effort to chew them. The only thing we don't like is the noodle as it is on the softer side. Waiters are well manner and accommodating.

The line looked long but it moved quite quickly. The staff was helpful with our questions. The food arrived quickly and it was delicious! Even the clear broth was deep and tasty! Of course the Taiwanese beef noodles is a must when you come here!

Over hyped by bloggers and blind followers without the sense of taste, this place might be making excellent food many years ago which earned them the fame. I have been there twice and both time I regretted my choice. A commune style eating hall crowded with tourists, your suffering is exchanged with super salty gamy broth with mediocre braised beef....

Everyone has different opinion of what the best Taiwanese beef noodle should taste but I think this is the benchmark. Flavorful and tender beef with al dente noodles and plenty of side dishes to choose from definitely worth the wait.

Ate here on the back of various socialmedia sources which claimed this was one of the best beef noodle places in taiwan Setting is modest Prices were modest too Taste was good not sure if this is the best as din tai fung also does good beef noodles but generous portion of ingredients Long lines seem to justify its fame...
