Why Tao-Yuan-Street Beef Noodle Shop is special ?

Once you get to Taoyuan Street, there are many beef noodle soup places, so don’t get confused! It is the one shop with no sign (though looking at trip advisor photos, I think it previously did have a big red sign which has been taken down). It has a side door entrance, and two floors, with upstairs and downstairs seating arrangements.


There is a big red sign and symbol out the front – no photos! (though for food blogging purposes I still snuck a few in, and I noticed, so did a few other diners!)


On the left is clear beef soup, on the right is the chilli beef soup. Both were excellent. The beef is tender, melt in your mouth, but doesn’t break apart when you pick it up. The meat is a bit saltier on purpose to compliment the not so salty broth and hand-made noodles that still have bite to them, which I love. (180NTD a bowl). I would definitely come back again.Once you get to Taoyuan Street, there are many beef noodle soup places, so don’t get confused!

I've tried the famous beef noodle (spicy version) at Yongkang and now Tao Yuan. They are both just as good, flavour wise both are outstanding. As for the texture of noodles, Tao Yuan is more chewy but I tend to prefer Yongkang because the noodles are thinner hence you get a good balance of noodles and soup. Meat wise Tao Yuan is very very tender but I prefer the thicker chunk of meat in Yongkang which were soft but not dry. If I would choose between the two, Yongkang would be my choice.
