Highlights of which were the dumpling house, yong kang beef noodles, and my personal favorite of the trip - tian jin cong zhua bing (天津蔥抓餅). The street stall operates out of the front of a Vietnamese restaurant, across the street from smoothie house. Get in line, and get one. They've got their menu in English so communication isn't an issue.... More

Yongkang Street is known more as a food street rather than a shopping street. There are many food outlets and restaurants serving noodles, dumplings, rice dishes to dainty cafes serving cakes, ice cream and other desserts. Do check out the small sub streets along Yong Kang, as there are many hidden food outlets in there too.

We had the impression that this is just a food street like Shanghai's Yunnan Road food street. But it's much more than just food. It has many beautiful Gems - quaint, European looking shops, cafes & restaurants. Very much like the beautiful Tian Zi Fang(Old French Concession). Yongkang Street is lined with many eateries/shops. But the Gems really lies in... More

A* must-visit place in Taipei for second timers like us, Yongkang street boasts of the best beef noodles- Yong Kang. Dessert choices have expanded since we visited two years ago. There are many mango shaved ice dessert stalls which are all the rage, with people standing on the street eating. I stick to my favourite matcha dessert eatery. There's Din... More

You need to be super hungry when coming to Yongkang Street. There are so many great restaurants and eateries in that vicinity. Just stroll through the neighborhood and take your pick. We had a big breakfast the morning we came and missed out on trying all those wonderful food but enjoyed the Smoothie House and the Tien Jin Pancakes. We... More

Great street to stroll down. There are a lot of options for food, desserts and of course shopping. The atmosphere is not like those night markets that scatter all over Taipei. It's less crazy, less packed. Enjoyed walking there in the afternoon for snack and tea. You can also find local designer stores and tea shops here as well
