“Foodie Galore”
Review of Yongkang Street

Yongkang Street
Ranked #2 of 60 Shopping in Da'an
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Directions : Tamsui-Xinyi line (red line) to Dongmen Station Exit 5.

Lots of food on this street. When you come out at Exit 5, walk straight ahead and you'll find the famous Ding Tai Feng steam dumpling restaurant. This is their original flagship store.

Just at the junction, turn right and you are on Yongkang Street where you will find famous yums like Mango shaved ice and Tianjin Cong Jua Bing (scallion pancake), it's a long queue you won't miss it and it's a must have!

There are also many very yummy food places here it's impossible to finish in a day. But for foodies, here is a paradise you can't miss.

Yong Kang Street is great place for a day trip in Taipei. You can make a day of it with so many shops, galleries, snack spots, restaurants, tea shops and coffee shops. Start your day with a stop at Sunmerry bakery and pick up some baked goods, then stop at one of the exquisite coffee shops to grab coffees and enjoy breakfast in the park.
Next wander the streets checking out all the stops selling souvenirs, top fashion, tea and tea ceramics and things you might never have expected.
Grab a quick lunch from any one of the many small local vendors and eat in or take out as may suit and enjoy true Taiwanese flavours with popcorn chicken (one of my favourites) or noodles and won tons (another one of my favourites) or a traditional Taiwanese meal box (another one of.....oh who am I kidding, I love it all).
Take some time to visit the several galleries in the area and catch a glimpse of what is happening on the Taiwanese art scene. And if you still have time take a short walk over to Da'an Park for a walk in a beautiful park and do a little bird watching. Be sure to see if you can spot some turtles in the pond in the park.
Wrap up your day with a big traditional Chinese meal at world famous Din Tai Fung for authentic dumplings (You can watch the chefs making them) or one of the other sit down restaurants like Kao Chi right on Yong Kang street.
So much to see and do in Yong Kang it easy to make a day of it. And very convenient by MRT from anywhere in Taipei.

Yongkang Street is probably Taipei's most touristic street. It is where you should go if you want to have a great bubble tea, a mango shave ice cream or a Taiwanese spring onion pancake. It is also a good place to buy souvenirs for your friends and relatives. It is a good place to meet friends for a drink or a lunch. It is a lively street. You shouldn't miss it while in Taipei.

We were staying nearby so visited here nearly everyday on our Taipei trip.

There are so many food options - but take time to wander around the side streets. Mango shaved ice, Yongkang beef noodles, Din Tai Fung, pineapple cake and the best sushi restaurant (You Sushi)!

We also got some amazing tea... The shops let you have tasters which makes a great souvenir. Really recommend coming a few times during a Taipei visit.
