Tainan City – KangLe Street Beef Noodles康樂街牛肉湯


This may not be one of the most well-known beef soup shops in Tainan, however, it has a certain appeal to it based on the fact that you can see the owner chopping beef outside.



Beef Soup – 牛肉湯 (niú ròu tāng) –  is the order of the day, here. However, at $160 per big bowl, it doesn’t come cheap.


We ordered a bowl of the Beef Soup ($160), and also a side of Stir Fried Beef (生炒牛肉 shēng chǎo niúròu $130), too.

The stir fried beef was done in a Sacha sauce (沙茶醬), which imparts a nice saltiness and garlic flavour to the beef, with some fresh crunchy leaves. I liked this a lot.


However, the beef soup didn’t do it for me. The broth had a very strong carrot flavour. Now, I am not a hater of carrots. But, the taste was too overpowering. I appreciate a beefy broth more, personally. The beef itself was pretty good, though, so if you like a vegetable broth then you’re looking at a solid choice. However, if you’re looking for a more beefy broth, then I would say give 文章牛肉湯 a shout, instead.

Recently moved out to Taiwan and don't know how to order at restaurants? I got you sorted. Can read some characters but still don't quite know what you're ordering? I got you sorted. This site has been developed to help people who can't speak or read Mandarin. I use pinyin, characters and English to talk about food ordering, and how you can do it at specific restaurants. If you like it, then give me a shout! Ash.
