They offer 3 kinds of soup base: double boiled beef soup, tomato beef soup and spicy beef soup. Tastes good but not outstanding. Beef tendon and beef shank are perfectly cooked. Still worth a try.

Great service, usually no queue, baby chair available. Menus available in multiple languages (at least Chinese, English, Korean and Japanese that I know of). Spicy beef noodles...the soup was especially good and flavourful, and the beef was really tender and juicy. Definitely highly recommended.

Better than the over-hyped Yang Kang Beef Noodles, with no queue, great service, baby chair. Order the spicy meat one, the cartilage noodles isn't as good.

A tomato-flavored broth accompanied the tenderest piece of beef u can find in a bowl of beef noodles in Taipei. All balanced beautifully. I will come back anytime I'm in Taipei.

We actually prefer the noodles at Lao zhang's than Yang Kang. The noodles have better textures and the broth is less salty. In addition, the price is also very reasonable.

Chanced upon this shop while walking around casually at Yong Kang Road vicinity. Decided to try our luck, and boy... we were not disappointed! Nice big bowl of braised beef noodle, tasty soup, big chuncks of beef and tendons... and they were soft as tofu!...More
