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.

    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.

    Better than ding tai feng


    Kao chi serve the best xiao long bao in Taipei and it’s better than ding tai feng. Local usually choose to dine in at kao chi compared with ding tai feng they actually were more for tourist , Japanese especially! Besides xiao long bao you can actually order a few dishes and have a great meal with your family

    Excellent dumplings


    Having tried dumplings are several recommended restaurants in Taipei, my husband and I agree the soup dumplings at Kao Chi were the best. And since man cannot live by soup dumplings alone, be sure to order the Shanghai style fried pork buns, as well. And an added bonus, this restaurant does take credit cards.

    Very good as famous Din Tai Fung resturant.


    I have eaten few times in this resturant and also took take away few times. All was very good, tasty as in Din Tai Fung but without ridiculous queue like they have all day long 7/7.I tried their dumplings, soups, noodles and other side dishes and all had a quality like Din Tai Fung.
