Kao chi (YongKang) 高記 (永康店)

Anchor point
No. 1, Yongkang St., Da'an Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C


Fried Pork Buns has become Kao Chi’s hot selling snack since 1949, the secret of hot selling is the natural fermented old dough; therefore, the crust is chewy in taste. When fried pork buns is ordered, Kao Chi will prepare a small pan to fry buns in front of customers, so that, customers can taste the hot, fresh and delicious snack. Others like "Crispy Pastry of Crab Shell Cake", "Roasted Cucian Crap with Green Onion", "Mung Beans Vermicelli in Soup with Oil Tofu" and so on are also traditional taste. Many officials choose "Kao Chi" to feasted foreign guests and that result in a trend of Shanghai style dessert in Taipei.

    Wow ! Highly recommend


    There’s a reason that this restaurant was packed the night we went! Actually two reasons. First the service is excellent. Second, the food is excellent. What more can you say? They told us to wait outside in line would be 20 minutes but it was more like five minutes. We really enjoyed a wonderful time here.

    Good meal


    We enjoyed our meal. We had dumplings, fried rice and greens. Extensive menu and good quality. Just not as good as din Tai fung

    Enjoyed our banquet


    We had a family dinner (2 tables) at Kao Chi, getting one of their banquet dinner options. The setting (in the front upstairs, with screens splitting us off from the other diners) was good, the service and food were excellent, and the price was very reasonable, at least by US standards. I wouldn't say the pan fried dumplings were better than Din Tai Fung, but they were competitive, and we enjoyed having a wider variety of foods to sample.

    Really excellent shanghainess food!


    This was recommended to us by a local and it did not disappoint. The xiao long bao were excellent - perfect skin, deliciously soupy. We also ordered the pan fried dumplings, which were also excellent, but I think many people can do that well. A must order dish is the dong po rou - an excellent pork belly that comes with bao buns - this is spectacular if you like pork belly. The downside is that the meat is so rich, it is best shared by 3-6 people. Personally I thought this was better than din tai feng and with minimal wait.

    Delicious dumplings and noodles, but fruit drinks were powdery


    The dumplings both steamed and pan fried were excellent. Yes... could give their competitors a run for their money! Easy to get to this location as it was just a few steps away from the Hop on Hop off stop. This isn’t a 5 star rating because the drinks were powdery and the wait staff seem to be avoiding us so to avoid speaking English to us.
