Taipei night market – 大統大牛排(原大統一) ShiLin Steakhouse

So we aren’t talking A-Cut, Le Blanc or Steak Inn here, we are talking a nightmarket steak that is deliciously inexpensive (and won’t give you stomach issues, like some)

Fortunately for you guys, the picture below explains what is what in the steak world in Taiwan. Now, I stand by British beef being up there with some of the best in the world. However, a lot of the beef we see around Taiwan is imported from USA. I don’t have any (yes) beef about this, personally, but I do know that some do.

$170

This steak isn’t going to change your world. But, for $170, I think it’s difficult to look past if you don’t want the usual nightmarket grub.

Get over the pasta and thick corn soup served with your meat. Really, just get over it. When you do, you’ll find a juicy piece of meat all slathered with peppercorn sauce. It’s alright, truth be told. The meat was cooked on the rarer side of medium, which is my usual order at steak houses. But, I kind of wished it was cooked a bit more, here…

So, would I recommend this place? Yes, and no.

If you’re in the neighbourhood and want steak but don’t want to shell out mega dollar, then yes.

But, if you want delicious steak that’s going to blow your mind – look elsewhere.

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.
