Yong Kang Beef noodle (Taipei: Yong Kang street)

By in 10: Taipei

Yongkong Beef Noodle 2For our second lunch we went to Yong Kang Beef noodle, another famous place that has been around for a long time at the Yong Kong neighbourhood. As you should not miss a bowl of pho in Vietnam or a bowl of ramen in Japan, beef noodle is one of those MUST-eat comfort food in Taiwan. You can find beef noodle everywhere in Taipei, I think almost every neighbourhood has its own local favorite(s).

Despite popularity, this place still operates like a hole-in-the-wall: dirt cheap, menu on the wall, get your own water, non-existing service. Very down home.

Braised Beef Noodle soup.

It’s pretty good. I can’t say it’s extremely impressive like I expected. The broth was flavorful and has a spicy kick to it. The meat was a little tough but the noodle has good springy texture.

Braised Beef Tendon noodle soup
I always preferred tendon over meat since tendons are more likely to be soft. The tendons were good and melt in your mouth.

We were finally fulled after the 2nd lunch. We desperately needed fruit juice after the noodles because there are lots of five spice in the broth (the reason it’s delicious). Good thing there’re plenty fruit juice place at Yong Kang street.
