Jin-Chun-Fa Beef Restaurant 金春發牛肉麵

Anchor point
No. 20, Tianshui Rd., Datong Dist., Taipei City Taiwan, R.O.C


Whipping up delicious dishes using all beef parts that are fresh-butchered every day, the century-old Jin-Chun-Fa Beef Restaurant on Tianshui Rd. has been frequented by generations of loyal customers.

Jin-Chun-Fa’s beef broth, a time-honored specialty stewed in a genuinely Taiwanese style, brings out the tastiness of beef without any artificial seasonings. Also available are stir-fried side dishes, just one serving of which, be it stir-fried vegetables or beef/offal curry, gives sufficient relish to bowls of rice. Attracting crowds for its long history and reputation, Jin-Chun-Fa is the place to be for authentically stewed beef noodles.

    Traditional tastes I like; not sure if youngster would love it


    To a middle-age Taiwanese like me, this is the place to search for old-style local eating. Traditional Taiwanese food is often prepared by quick stir-fry in a wok on flames. And that was exactly how they cooked the curry noodle with beef and the beef in tomato & curry sauces. The quick stir frying prevented the beef from overdone and kept it tender and juicy. The sweet salty seasoning (sugar plus soy sauce) and the gingery curry all were but old Taiwanese style, so appetizing that you couldn't but order lots of rice to go with it. Besides, their Niu Za Soup (cow innards soup) was light and sweet (but I personally prefer a thicker, stew-like style) and innards were adequately chewy. However, I am not sure if nowadays, youngsters promoting light and healthy eating might like it as stir frying cooking would inevitable also be oily. But I indeed would recommend young guys to try these old tastes that I love.

    Nice but limited


    Luckily a staff member took pity on us and found a menu with English otherwise we would have been really stuck! Very much a local eatery, catering for everything to do with beef. If you don't eat offal then the menu is limited, however we managed a couple of tasty dishes.

    This eatery has been around for over a century but on this particular day when we went and ordered 2 dishes we werent much impressed. Had their Stirred fried curry beef noodles and mixed beef offals soup. Stirred fried noodles did have "wok hey"-- "breath of the dragon" but the noodles came out too soft and soggy, beef was tiny pieces and overcooked. Mixed beef offals was just ok, broth was nice, but the rest are not memorable.

    Simple and nice


    Old restaurant specializing in beef. The meat is fresh and tender and there are a wide variety of dishes of meat, including noodles. You can have a quick meal here. Portions are small, and that is ok so you can try many different dishes. Service is friendly and English menu is available. Overall cost isn't cheap but then you don't come here for cheap meals.
