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.

    Beautiful dongporou 東坡肉


    I think the best menu here is dongporou( 東坡肉) a bit expensive but really worth. Xiao long bao is also nice.

    A Place You Ought to Know When in Taipei


    When a local friend of ours mentioned that Kao Chi is his go-to place for good soup dumplings in Taipei, I was quite skeptical. When every other tourist talks about Din Tai Fung, Kao Chi? Really? But after a disappointing meal at that tourist attraction, we decided to give Kao Chi, which is conveniently located around the corner from DTF, a serious try. And we are glad we did. The place is very family friendly with many locals ( NOT tourists) ordering their “usuals” without even referring to the menu. Always a good sign. We ordered their pork soup dumplings and steamed vegetable dumplings. Both delicious. By looking at what people around us were eating, We assumed their fried pork buns or sheng jian bao are also popular. There are also many Shanghainese style entree dishes on their menu. All looked pretty good although we were too full to try. Service was also very pleasing. It pained us to see their manager standing outside passing menus to passers-by, when their food is so much better than their popular neighbor around the corner. Maybe it is supposed to be a hidden gem that only locals would frequent. But I still think Kao Chi deserves better!

    This is IT!!!!


    Kao Chi Zhongshan Restaurant (No. 133號) We (family of 6) went there on weekday around 7ish and was seated after 10 minutes at the second floor. It was full (just lucky having the corner table available) but not PACKED & LINEUP like begging for food!! The service is good, was not like Din Tai Fung that we need to eat fast in order for them to clear the table for the next customers!! Too bad the Sheng Jian Bao was sold out (the signature dish)!! The bill came to Cad $70 and we are all full. The quality of the food & the price is great! I highly recommend this restaurant and would come back anytime if I visit Taipei again!

    Dinner on our First Nite


    Another choice for Xiao Long Bao. Liked their dumplings too. The ambiance is good. Need to get a reservation at times. More choices to choose from in their menu. Could be pricier than ordinary restos. Service is above average. Near Dongmen station exit 5.
