Awesome Meat Treats at 小牛匠 Restaurant, Taipei


In a country where English is not the main language, it’s not uncommon to come across restaurants that are without any romanized names, such is this one that’s read as “Xiao Niu Jiang”, literally translated to Little Cow Master.

The shop is without any grand facade but what lead me to this place were the many promotional billboards with delicious looking food. Apparently there are 2 branches of 小牛匠 within the Xi Men area itself.

I made my way up to the restaurant, it was around 10:30PM and I was one of the few diners around. The shop closes at midnight so there’s plenty of time to dine.

I went with the Set Meal, I ordered the Sirloin Steak and ordered the add-on that allows me access to their buffet spread.

Their buffet spread is limited – watermelon, Japanese noodle, soup and vegetables, not bad for just 49 NT extra.

The Sirloin Steak cooked to medium arrived in just about 10 minutes, that’s extremely fast in my book!

The beef – oh I can’t put in words how great it was, the meat was tender and juicy, more importantly the beef was in good form. There’s absolutely no hint that the meat is old or in sub-standard condition. I enjoyed every pit of it, paying just a little over 500 NT.
