T2014 Yong Kang Beef Noodle

Each time that I visit Taiwan, I will eat beef noodles. So far I have tried at least 5 eateries and the one I like best is Yong Kang Beef Noodle (永康牛肉麵) at No. 17, Lane 31, Section 2, Jinshan South Rd, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106. The nearest MRT station is Dong Men, take exit 4. Their website is http://beefnoodle-master.com/

We always reach there early at 11 am for lunch to ensure that there is no queue yet. Tourists and locals all like to eat here but the queue moves very fast so one only waits for a short while if there is a queue.

Beef noodle with brisket and tendons with la mian type noodles.

3 side dishes of the many other dishes printed on the menu

Bamboo shoots - slightly spicy. Bamboo shoot is a common dish there that we seldom find here.

Julienned Seaweed or Kelp 

粉蒸排骨- Rice powder steamed pork ribs - slightly spicy. The pork ribs are coated with rice and steamed - very tasty!

  2. I love beef noodles but rarely gets to eat this as my hubby doesn't eat beef and I usually wont be able to finish the entire bowl so kind of wasted.

    1. Bring a metal container and put half your beef noodles into it before you start to eat the rest so that you can enjoy it without having to finish it all at one go.

  3. Yummy! I love everything esp the beef noodles and bamboo shoot. I always thought that bamboo shoot is poor man's dishes in China.
    So you also love Taiwan and frequents the eateries!

    1. The mee sua is too gooey for my liking. I don't remember it having any sourish taste.

    2. Not that often but I will have it with sweet and sour fish maw ( foochow dish) or fry with pork. I even like the pickled bamboo that we used to eat with porridge.

    3. I also buy those pickled bamboo in bottles made in China to eat with porridge. Very pungent taste.

  10. That bowl of beef noodles sure look good! Was it spicy? Looks like there is chili oil in it.

    1. We can request the level of spiciness. For this, it is the lowest level of spiciness. I think even at the highest level, you won't think it is spicy enough for you, hehehe.

  11. the beef noodles looks good! do they put a lot of chili oil? looks kinda spicy too. How much is that bowl of noodles?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Up to you. You can specify the level of spiciness that you like. But for people here who usually eat very spicy sambal, their top level of spiciness is nothing. I think about MYR20 to MYR25 depending on the exchange rate at that time.

  12. The rice with pork ribs sounds great.. something different.. never tried that before...

    1. You can buy the packets of crushed rice with ready seasoning from the supermarkets there and steam your own pork ribs at home using them. Very nice!

  13. Rice powder? Sounds interesting and that dish looks interesting as well!

    1. As you can see the rice is more to crushed rice than powder. I noticed that the supermarkets do sell packets of these crushed rice already seasoned for you to buy and coat your own pork ribs to steam.

  14. I only want the rice! Looks quite unique! As for the others... maybe I'll order other stuff if and when I get there... :/
