Speaking of Taiwanese beef noodles, some of my acquaintances recommended this restaurant. YongKang beef noodles (永康牛肉麵).
This yellow-colored bright signboard is outstanding. There were many people gathering in the restaurant.
They have private rooms on the 2nd floor of the building.
The closest station is MRT Dongmen (東門) station. As their restaurant’s name, They are close to Yongkang Street (永康街).
They serve noodles mainly. Their menu have pictures, English words and Japanese words. So, they don’t speak both English and Japanese, I could order easily. English words is good. But Japanese words is…difficult…
Almost all people in the restaurant ordered beef noodles.
Cattle tendon noodles with soybean sauce
The most popular foods in the restaurant is, of course, beef noodles. They have two types of beef noodles. To put it simply, spicy noodles and not spicy noodles. This is spicy one.、Cattle tendon noodles with soybean sauce (紅燒半筋牛肉麵, 270TWD). It’s soy sauce based spicy soup. It looks very spicy, actually it was spicy, but more, the temperature of the soup was very hot. So, I felt more more spicy. And it was hard to cold because this soup had much oil. The surface of the soup was coated with oil. But it was spicy and good.
And it have much simmered beef tendon. Those meat was soft and tendon was like jelly. Their beef noodle is more expensive than another local restaurants, but I understand. They use high quality Taiwanese beef.
If you don’t like spicy foods, they have beef noodles with salt flavor. Price is same.
Many people ordered something with beef noodles, so I ordered, too. Spicy dumpling (紅油抄手, 120TWD).Spicy sauce was put on dumpling. It’s the sauce like tantanmen noodles, and it was seasoned with sesame. This texture of the dumpling was awesome.
But. I couldn’t find the spiciness of it because my spicy noodles was far spicy than it. So, it might be good to eat it with salted beef noodles. I felt it’s mild sauce :p
If you eat much or share foods with someone, steamed hog spareribs and sweet potatoes with sticky rice (粉蒸排骨) is very popular. It looked yummy !
