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”.

    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.

    Nice evening stroll


    Very nice place for an evening stroll and dinner. Lots of places to choose from, bakeries, ice parlors, restaurants of various kinds. Loads of people, so there may be lines.

    YongKang Street - TPE great place to eat


    Yong Kang Street is the most famous eating place to travelers. The most famous Ding Tai Fung restaurant is here, with Minchilin certified and you can have XiaoLung Bao here. After eating the DinTai Fung, you certainly need to go to the Ice Mango ! Almost all the Japanese and HongKong travelers all know this place. Whenever they come to Taipei, they will need to go back here to eat then continue their other journey. This is the place you can't miss it ! Here also has my most favorite Beet Noodle : Yong Kang Beef Noodle restaurant here !
