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

Cool place to walk down. Lots of very decent restaurants cafes and places to get tea. Also some unique clothing/shoe shops as well with stuff you won't find anywhere but Taiwan. Also lots of souvenir shops.

I would rate it 4.5 if possible: Pros: more locals, less tourists; easy access and right in city center off MRT; basically within a few square blocks and easy to navigate; vendors are all super nice and helpful; good place for first intro to night market, less worries about losing young kids Cons: not the best food varieties but enough...

It is a casual stroll from the Dongaan MRT and a change from the ubiquitous shopping malls that seem to be everywhere. Well worth an hour or two if you have the time to spare.
