I love steak; I hate getting ripped off! Where is the best possible steak VALUE in a Taipei area restaurant?

Oooo, me too please
"I wanted to be puzzled and charmed, to experience the endless, beguiling variety of a continent where you can board a train and an hour later be somewhere where the inhabitants speak a different language, eat different foods, work different hours, live lives that are at once so different and yet so oddly similar. I wanted to be a tourist," Bill Bryson.
"...But I ended up in Taiwan," Lili.

how much satisfaction,
how much comfort,
how much soul and transcendence there might be
in a cold bottle of beer.

My wife says "Red Onion Steak" on Nanjing East Rd. between Guangfu and San Min? She's been to a lot more of the expensive ones than I have.

This may be a little over NT$1000. Check out the menu in the link. I guess they have some promotions (i.e. the third person eats for free).

There's a shop at the Tonghua street nightmarket, a little more than halfway towards the Keelung (Jilong) Rd. part. The interior is painted a hideous pastel yellow and it has a yellow/purple theme.

They have bigger than your face steaks for 199 or 250 or something like that (14 oz. I think?), with spagetti and an egg. Not the best steak in Taipei, but the best steak to money ratio maybe. You can find these sorts of shops at most nightmarket or university areas. This one had steak that wasn't rubberized, so I thought I'd give it a mention.

Looks like they have 2 locations at least:
紫牛牛排
Zi3niu2niu2pai2 (Purple cow steak)

台北市大安區臨江街19之1號
No. 19-1, Lingjiang St., Da'an Dist. Taipei, Taiwan
02-27071739
士林大東路52號(士林圓環)
No. 52, Dadong Rd., Shilin Dist, Taipei, Taiwan (in the ugly building with a bunch of food right next to the MRT station)

I second Lupillus recommendation at Tonghua market. I've eaten better steaks there than at more expensive places.

I also like this one close to Xindian. It is very old school, but the food is plenty for 750nts you get the steak -very tasty, really impressive-, drinks, scargots with cheese, soup, bread, salad, etc. Not all you can eat but a bit classier. They also have a cheaper alternative now, weekday lunch speacials, which I'm told are quite good.

Do not confuse for the one across the street that's on a first floor. That's hideous by comparison.

well this "steak houses" are nearly everywhere. A famous chain is "Family Steak House", one is next to Zhongxiao Nanjing E. Rd MRT station. You choose your meat (Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Fish), medium, raw, cooked whatever and pay from 200 to 400 depending on the meat. It includes noodles, veggies and an egg and an ALL YOU CAN EAT side dish buffet (salads, fried stuff, desserts, drinks). I like it an usually choose beef, medium medium (they have different mediums :cool: )and pay around 300.

You're not serious, are you? "Family Steak House" is utterly vile and hideous. Fucking NOODLES and CORN? We won't even mention the "steak" on your plate. Tastes and looks like goat. Take a leaf from Dragonbones' book: Buy and make your own. :2cents:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

OK, you have this NT$1000 slab of costco ribeye in your kitchen.

How do you make it a good steak?

I won't claim this is the best place for steak, but it's one of my favorites.
Yaki
B2 of the Eslite building at Taipei City Hall MRT.
It's something of a Japanese fusion joint. Portions are small, but good, and at the end of the meal, I'm just properly filled.
Order the C meal: soup, garlic bread, salad, fish app, steak (8 oz, I think) with red wine or mushroom sauce... both of which I skip for plain salt and pepper, mashed pots (often a bit cool for my taste), and a really nice cup of coffee. Costs something like NT$450 (maybe its NT$550, now).
