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”.

    Foodie Street


    The Din Tai Fung flagship is located near here as well many other foodie places to try. Our strategy was to 1st try to get a table @ DTF. If the line was too long, we would head around the corner to Kao Chi (regarded as 2nd to DTF for XLB plus other Shanghai style dishes & Beef Noodles). Luckily, there was a short wait for us @ DTF. Afterwards, we walked off our lunch on YongKang Street. It's not a very long street & you can spend 1-2 hours browsing. There are many other types of restaurants, coffee shops and dessert shops (Smoothie House, King Mango, SunMerry bakery), tea shops, as well as small clothing and souvenir shops. Wished we had more room in our stomachs to try more foods.

    Great place to wonder around


    We accidentally found this street but it was a great find. Loads of restaurants, snack stalls etc. Everything looked extremely delicious. Worth a wonder around, however it is busy at the weekend.

    Lots of places to try


    Just happened to stumble upon this road since we were aiming for the park to eat some food. The streets are lined with lots of restaurants, shops and coffee/tea places. There was a pancake stall close to Xinyi Road that had a huge line but we literally just had lunch so didn't get to try it.

    Directions : Tamsui-Xinyi line (red line) to Dongmen Station Exit 5. Lots of food on this street. When you come out at Exit 5, walk straight ahead and you'll find the famous Ding Tai Feng steam dumpling restaurant. This is their original flagship store. Just at the junction, turn right and you are on Yongkang Street where you will find famous yums like Mango shaved ice and Tianjin Cong Jua Bing (scallion pancake), it's a long queue you won't miss it and it's a must have! There are also many very yummy food places here it's impossible to finish in a day. But for foodies, here is a paradise you can't miss.
