Yongkang Street Area 永康街區

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”.

    Taipei's most touristic street


    Yongkang Street is probably Taipei's most touristic street. It is where you should go if you want to have a great bubble tea, a mango shave ice cream or a Taiwanese spring onion pancake. It is also a good place to buy souvenirs for your friends and relatives. It is a good place to meet friends for a drink or a lunch. It is a lively street. You shouldn't miss it while in Taipei.

    Great street in Taipei


    We were staying nearby so visited here nearly everyday on our Taipei trip. There are so many food options - but take time to wander around the side streets. Mango shaved ice, Yongkang beef noodles, Din Tai Fung, pineapple cake and the best sushi restaurant (You Sushi)! We also got some amazing tea... The shops let you have tasters which makes a great souvenir. Really recommend coming a few times during a Taipei visit.

    Busy street with lots of restaurants and street food stalls


    This street is reachable from Dongmen or Daan Park MRT station. Its within walking distance from either station. The street is bustling with people as we were there during lunch time. There are numerous restaurants, cafes, bakeries and street food stalls. The street is well paved and walking is easy though you have to beware of cars passing by. There are also residential apartments surrounding the area and also a small children playground nearby. There are also various shops selling souvenirs, clothing, T shirts etc. There are also tea shops where you can shop for your favourite tea or tea set. Overall this street have various food that will satisfy most visitors.

    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 !
