We had a full meal at Din Tai Fung before wandering YongKang Street. I don't know how we did it, but we still managed to eat giant bowls of mango shave ice and green onion pancakes afterwards. Our strategy of picking street vendors who already have lot of people standing in long lines continues to be a winner! We were... More

Very nice place for an evening stroll and dinner. Lots of places to choose from, bakeries, ice parlors, restaurants of various kinds. Loads of people, so there may be lines.

Yong Kang Street is the most famous eating place to travelers. The most famous Ding Tai Fung restaurant is here, with Minchilin certified and you can have XiaoLung Bao here. After eating the DinTai Fung, you certainly need to go to the Ice Mango ! Almost all the Japanese and HongKong travelers all know this place. Whenever they come to... More

A lovely neighborhood with loads of restaurants, food stalls and some shops. There's a diversity so you'll be able to find what ever cuisine you'd like. There's also an antique market at the very end if you walk from dongmen station (yellow or red line). Come back many times because you'll want to try many of the food places in... More

This is a great place for foodies with endless stalls and restaurants from one end to the other. You can simply or randomly drop by any of the restaurants (no need to check reviews) and the food would be good. The mango shaved ice dessert is located here as well, but get ready to queue up if you're planning to... More

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
