角頭炙焼牛排 Cow Boss Taipei – Steak and Carbs

Raohe Night Market is one of the better night markets for food. The streets were lined with your Ye Shi foods of all kinds. We were trying to find a place where most locals queued up at. We stumbled past Cow Boss, which claims to have a “Boss Level” of deliciousness. It had a long line of Taiwanese locals. This piqued our interest and before long, we were in the restaurant.

Cow Boss is a very clean restaurant, a juxtaposition from the street stalls outside with its modern look.

The menu (http://cowboss.tw/menu/) showcased the many dishes that Cow Boss has, all at phenomenal value. For 150TWD(~S$6.60), I can get a steak with an egg and noodles with a starter dish of bread, with soup and drinks! I decided to go for the Signature Steak (260TWD/~S$11.35) while my friend went for their Grilled Fish Steak (180TWD/~S$7.80).

We were served their starter which was the Dinner Rolls. It was a surprising treat. The butter rolls were warm and filled with warm butter, that kept dripping, causing us to slurp it all up. It was a great palate-opener and I kept craving for more (which can be purchased at 20TWD) but decided to save my stomach space for the main dish.

There’s also free flow cream of mushroom soup and free dispensed drinks available for you to take. Paid glass-bottled drinks are also available.

The default done-ness of the beef was medium, but you can choose to have it your way by simply letting the waiter know. There were 5 sauce options: Black Pepper, Mushroom, Secret Grill, Garlic or Cheese Sauce. I went with the mushroom sauce. You also had the option of adding prawns or oysters with your meal.

I was very excited when my food came shortly after we finished the dinner rolls. It came sizzling on a hot plate with noodles, an egg and some veggies.

The kitchen had an open concept, located outside where the queue was. You can see your food being made in front of you!

Cow Boss was also featured on the newspapers, as seen by this on their wall.

If you’re looking for toilets, they also have a very clean toilet in here. I guess it’s important to have a clean toilet if you’re in Taiwan because in some places, it’s not easy to find a toilet hahaha.

Overall, Cow Boss is one of the most value-for-money places in Taiwan to have steak. It’s not exactly a steakhouse, but it fulfills any cravings you have. At a phenomenally low price point, it’s a place I would definitely visit again when I’m bored of eating street food in Taiwan.
