Yongkang Beef Noodle Soup Restaurant 永康牛肉麵館

Anchor point
#17, Lane 31, Jinshan S. Rd., Sec.2, Da'an Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C


If you are entertaining someone hard to please, Yongkang Beef Noodle Soup Restaurant, the favorite of Taipei residents, is the place to go. Its Sichuan-style hot and spicy soup with huge chunks of beef—cooked just to perfection—leaves everyone satisfied. Besides having a large variety of side dishes, the restaurant also serves steamed spare ribs and steamed intestines—another must try! (My Taipei - 2005 Winter)

    Decent, 3.5 stars


    Slightly on the expensive side Beef was really tender, soup was nice. Sign (In Chinese) noted the flavour of all food items served are on the more flavourful side -- Sound out to the staff taking your orders if you would like customisation. Different groups of customers sitting at same table. Do check your "receipt" when handed to ensure the staff notes the correct amount. Queuing: Worth it to queue for <10 minutes. Can ask the staff what's the estimated waiting time for your group size. Groups at the back may be fast tracked to fit the seating arrangements.

    Uninspiring... don't waste your time


    I was looking forward to this after reading and hearing the many positive reviews. There was a long queue at 3pm. Luckily, I decided not to join the queue then. I came back at 5pm and there was a much shorter queue. I ordered the mixed tendon/meat noodles and it looked disappointing. The taste matched the look. I did not finish my noodles. When I left at the peak of dinnertime, there was no more line. Obviously, people have gotten wiser too. I had much better versions at DTF. Heck. The instant version I had the night before was better.

    There are many good options for beef noodles and this is one of them! Don’t miss out on the beef noodles here! Broth and meat are both super yummy and you can finish off with dessert at a shaved ice or bubble tea place around the corner. Both our boys (10 and 7) loved the noodles. Level of spiciness was just right.

    This is THE original Yongkang beef noodle soup


    I had heard so much about Yongkang beef noodle soup. I was really excited to be able to try it finally! We went on a Thursday afternoon at 3:15 and there was a line outside of the restaurant! Wow!! The beef noodle soup did not disappoint and was worth the wait. We also had the steamed pork ribs with rice. I did not expect the dish to be spicy but it was and it was lovely.

    Only have a day in Taipei? Go to Taoyuan Street instead!


    Better than any beef noodles I've had in the US, but definitely disappointing compared to other places in Taipei (Taoyuan St!!). Broth: hong shao is spicy, rich, but way too heavy on the soy sauce. Kind of boring, and I preferred the clear broth here. Noodles: awfully average and not chewy at all. Beef: the best part! They're quite generous on the beef chunks, even considering the price. Super tender and pull-apart, but kind of ruined by the abundance of tough tendon. I kept thinking about how Taoyuan St's beef just melts in your mouth with no resistance. I think Yong Kang's worth a one-time visit, but nothing more. Locals and family I've talked to all say that there's much better beef noodle soup in Taipei, and usually recommend the shop on Taoyuan Street.
