Yongkang Street Area

Yongkang Street is the origin of Taipei alley culture. Without doubt, it is the crème de la crème in terms of gourmet cuisine. Originally earning fame for its traditional cuisine, such as Din Tai Fung's Taiwanese dumplings and the Shou-Lan Gourmet; the 20-plus year-old Hui-Liu Restaurant is representative of the new healthy-eating fashion that combines tea and vegetarian cuisine, with a brilliant interior design and classical music in the background, portraying a sense of style and leisure. Another favorite of scholars is the Yeh Tang Tea Culture Research Institute, a place with an emphasis on traditional Taiwanese tea culture, as well as the contemporary cafes and tea stores along the alleys of Yongkang, Qingtian and Longquan. Each shop is run in the unique style of its owner, who is always glad to chat and share with customers the beauty that is called “life”.

    It’s a great walking area


    The street around Yongkang Park has many shops and restaurants. It’s a great place to stroll and pop into the shops for a look see. The famous restaurants like Din Tai Feng, Yongkang Beef Noodles, and others always have long lines but not too bad of waiting. Lots of good tea shops have all the nice teas of Taiwan.

    Great place to eat and walk


    There are many famous eating place including street food , restaurant and ice desert. Recently, they are also famous by hair washing store. While you go to this place, you may try Taiwan styled hair washing. It is very affordable in price and TCO ( Total cost of ownership ). It includes some massage, hair washing, dry hair with simple style -no extra cost. 我最近每兩星期得去金華街看牙, 每次我都故意搭捷運從東門站下車, 一路從永康街最熱門的街道晃過去. 除了我之前介紹給各位的鼎泰豐或牛肉麵以外, 最近這裡開了不少在2樓的美容院 ( 在台灣洗髮廳也稱之) . 聽說這是因為在國外很少專門洗髮特別是坐著洗髮的地方, 在加上在台灣美容院洗頭髮會加上簡單的肩部按摩與髮型吹整等. 像最近我爾肩膀痠痛我就去快樂髮型洗髮, 在他們的按摩與洗髮後每每覺得輕鬆許多. 這種服務國外較少. 旅遊者不妨試試 !

    The old days were better懷念以前


    I remember like 50 years ago, my mom took me to eat at the original restaurant in Tainan. Oh, My gosh, I can still remember as the best noodle in my life. However, I can never match that up when I visit the restaurant last year and half, The service is good.

    So many sights, sounds, smells, and tastes to savor!


    We had a full meal at Din Tai Fung before wandering YongKang Street. I don't know how we did it, but we still managed to eat giant bowls of mango shave ice and green onion pancakes afterwards. Our strategy of picking street vendors who already have lot of people standing in long lines continues to be a winner! We were there on a Monday afternoon, but it was still remarkably busy with lots of pedestrians (both locals and obvious tourists), bicyclists/mopeds/taxis/commercials trucks squeezing by pedestrians, wandering lost dogs, and street vendors. It's definitely a worthwhile place to wander and see some local flavor.
