Oodles For Noodles

Yong-Kang Beef Noodle
Jinshan S. Road, Taipei

Taiwanese-style beef noodle soup is synonymous to Yong-Kang Beef Noodle. It's been a staple for everybody who knows good Taiwan noodles since 1963. Today, we got to taste it for ourselves:

At around lunch, a long line already can be seen outside the restaurant...

For appetizer, we had their famous Fen Zheng Pai Gu, which was steamed pork spareribs and yam mixed with broken rice. It can also be available in pork intestines instead of the usual pork spareribs. I must say that the intestines were better and more flavorful than the spareribs version. The dish had a bit of heat also that perfectly complemented the gamy flavor of the intestines. Indeed, it was something that opened up our palettes for the main dish.

Intestines

The noodles were amazing! I've tasted a lot of really good beef noodles in the Philippines but Yong-Kang was in another level. It was the epitome of authenticity! The noodles were handmade and perfect. The meat and the soup were really flavorful and hearty. Best damn beef noodles I've ever tasted, if I may say so...

Yong-Kang Beef Noodle is truly a Taiwan treasure. You should not miss this when you come visit Taiwan.
