Where to Eat in Taipei, Taiwan (with Michelin Bib Gourmand Awards)

Taipei, the vibrant capital city of Taiwan, is a haven for food lovers, with its rich culinary heritage and diverse gastronomic offerings. For those seeking memorable dining experiences, the Michelin Bib Gourmand Awards serve as a trusted guide.

Here are 3 restaurants in Taipei with the Bib Gourmand Award that you should definitely try!

1. Lao Shan Dong Noodles

Our top favorite. Located in the Ximending area, Lao Shan Dong Noodles is a must-visit for noodle aficionados. This humble eatery has gained recognition for its delectable hand-pulled noodles, cooked to perfection and served in a savory broth.

What topped our experience though are their Beef Rice, dumplings, and side dish! We are definitely eating at this restaurant again.

Lao Shan Dong Beef Noodles NT$190

Beef Rice NT$190

Dumplings NT$90

Side Dish around NT$30 or NT$40

Lao Shan Dong Noodles may be hard to find, but don't give up! It's at the corner of the basement level as you can see in the image above. Click here for their location via Google Maps.

2. Lo Chi Hsiao Chao

This hidden gem in the Linjian Street Market presents an interesting menu that consists of fresh vegetables mixed with your choice of beef or lamb. Their clams are also a best-seller, and tasted so healthily good, especially with a bowl of hot white rice!

It is hard to order as they don't have an English menu, so feel free to just show them these photos if you want to order their best sellers.

We found them pricey given the type of food (simple vegetables) and its setting in a street food night market (we forgot to take note of the price per dish, but in total it cost us around NT$600+ in total including rice and drinks), but it's worth a try when you're around!

3. Yong-Kang Beef Noodles

No exploration of Taipei's culinary scene would be complete without savoring a bowl of Yong-Kang Beef Noodles! It is renowned for its robust beef broth and tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef slices. They surely did not disappoint!

Braised Beef Noodle Soup NT$240

Dumplings NT$130. Please mix them well before eating - there's peanut butter seasoning at the bottom of the bowl.

Steamed Spare Ribs Rice (with sweet potatoes) NT$130

Healthy greens for our side dish

We're not sure what these are, but we loved it! Are these mushrooms?

💡 After eating your hearty meal at Yong-Kang Beef Noodles, head over to explore Yong-Kang Street, which is just a few meters away. It is very much alive during the night, and is housed with a lot of trendy cafes, dessert restaurants, and a lot more.
