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)

    Local cuisine with a rustic touch


    Generally regarded as another of Taipei's foodie must-try restaurants (it's listed in the Michelin guide), we our way there as many tourists must have done previously. Located only a single subway stop away from the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial, it's not hard to find as there's usually a queue outside waiting to get in. There certainly was one the day we visited, and it took us about twenty minutes to get in for a late lunch. We were shown to our tables (or rather pointed towards it), and got settled into our stools. The restaurant's certainly fairly basic in decor, so don't epect any frills. We ordered two different versions of the beef noodles - the signature saucy one as well as the soup-based one. The beef used is Australian in origin, and the chunky pieces were tender to the bite. However, I did find the saucy version a little too oily even though I preferred it to the soup-based bowl. We also tried their steamed pork spareribs and steamed pork intestines which, while tasty, probably wouldn't count as one of my favourites. Nevertheless, prices were affordable, and it was worth trying.

    Average food and overrated.


    I visited Yongkang Beef Noodle (永康牛肉麵館) in Taipei, Taiwan in mid Feb., 2020. This restaurant had been around for several decades. The seating was very casual and customers often shared tables. The service was average. The menu was simple and clear. I ordered a beef noodle with beef tendon and beef. It was a bit spicy for me but the flavoring was good and typical. The Steamed Pork Intestine with Rice Flour was disappointing. The rice grain was unusually large and insufficient. The flavoring was below average. This restaurant was overrated.

    It was just ok


    No line on a wednesday at noon. I thought it was just ok, thought the broth was a little bland. Maybe I came on a bad day, but i thought it was just ok. Its a little pricey with a small bowl coming at around $8 usd.

    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.
