With 3 consecutive reviews what more can i say about this place. The soup of their beef shin noodles was really authentic, you can really taste the herbs that were used. Noodle just need to be more firm as it was as thick as lomi noodles.

Their beef teppan was also good though we originally intend to order other dish which was out of stock, nonetheless this dish was a good alternative.

First visit here was great. So returning here is a must, ordered their braised beef and litid 128513 noodles, it was goood. We still stick with the original noodles but theres an option to upgrade to banana flavor or pho noodles.

The 3 cups chicken was a bit salty hence the reason for 4 stars other than that everything was superb.

Of course visiting here without having the matcha + taho + jelly would be such a waste... at least for me. 128522

Found ourselves at promenade on a rainy evening, since its raining hard outside, it was best to have dinner nearby. Most of the restos were full but then i remember i read somewhere about this place but im not sure if it still exist. We tried to find this place and its a shame that this place is nowhere near the foot traffic area but that might also be the reason were dining here. 128518

A taiwanese dinner might be good so we ordered their beef brisket and beef slice noodles, it was really good as you can really taste the herbs used for the soup, i guess this place might be one among the few that serves this kind of soup, while the noodles need some work, i was abit thick and some noodle strands are sliced off. But the beef was superb, very tender.

Oyster omelette was of another version but i prefer this one as this was with tomato kind of sauce on a pancake like style as compare to the usual mixed with onions n togue.

Green tea + taho + mochi balls + jelly was really good as well.

K was craving for noodles and I wasn't really hungry that night so he was the one who chose where to eat. 128514

He got their Taiwan Beef Noodle, and I just ordered their steamed dumplings.

I really loved the dumplings! The meat was seasoned well, but they went a bit overboard with the sesame oil. I didn't mind, though! 128514

Cannot really comment if the noodles were legit like the ones in Taiwan because I haven't tried the authentic ones. 128514 K really liked it, and even finished the whole bowl.

I'm not a fan of congee but this one really captured my stomach 128536 Oyster with Century Egg Congee is one of their hot picks and i bet everyone especially the health conscious one must try this. Its not just century and oyster but it also has lots of veggies. Downside is, you need to add some spices to enjoy it fully. #12Days

Despite the smoldering summer heat this afternoon, TaiOne's 3 treasure beef noodle soup was just right for our tired and wary bodies from work. The broth had a good balance of meatiness, body, an apparent whiff of oriental herbs and spices. The slices of brisket and shin were juicy and fork tender, reflective of a long and careful braising. We also couldn't resist ordering the fried chicken steak and pan-fried Pork kimchi dumplings which went perfectly well with our steamy hot bowl of goodness!
This place is definitely worth another visit.

Went here with the wife to try how authentic the beef noodle soup is compared to the ones in Taiwan.

Soup is pretty authentic, you taste the herbs complete with the garnishes. The beef was cooked well, probably boiled in the soup for at least 24 hours. The problem though for me was the noodles they served - it was pretty much broken up all over. Quite a disaster/mortal sin for Chinese dishes. So I'm assuming for the restaurant's sake that the chef just ran out for that night.

The next order was the pan fried dumplings - which I could say was totally superb! Juicy, very well prepared! I would highly recommend this to everyone to order!

Last order for the night was the Taiwanese style pork chop - it was succulent and juicy. But taste wise - it was just ok.

Worth a return trip back, let's see if they deliver up a better standard for the noodles!

Had their Beef Shin Noodle Soup, Pork Kimchi Panfried Dumpling and Grilled Sausages.

I wanted to try their Beef & Tendon Noodles and Panfried Pork Dumpling (both were bestsellers daw) but was told that both were not available. Too bad. I was already a bit turned off at this point.

The beef noodle was ok, filling and the soup broth was flavorful. It had a tinge of spiciness but not too strong, just mild. I shared this with my Dad. I liked their noodles, it was al dente, just the right chewiness.127836

The dumplings were good, also had a tinge of spiciness. The meat filling was tasty and each dumpling had enough fillings inside. They didnt ask me if I wanted it spicy, so you better ask and inform them if u dont like it spicy. The girlled sausage was so-so. It is far from the grilled sausages I had when I was in Taipei.

They have a limited parking in front of the resto (along Connecticut) but nobody mans it so u have to honk several times to catch the waiters' attention. This is a good thing if you dont want to park inside chaotic Greenhills complex.

Service needs improvement, kitchen was slow, considering it was a dead hour and we were the only ones dining.

I finally got to try out Tai One in Greenhills Promenade 3! I had a hard time looking for it too because it was outside, and the guards were pointing me in different directions.

I availed of the simplest beef noodles meal, because I was still a little full and I'm not actually a noodles fan despite being Chinese. I also ordered a carafe of their iced tea.

The moment I got the beef noodles, I thought I had been lied to! It looked really spicy, I was quite hesitant to try it out. My first sip though proved me wrong, it was actually quite tangy-sweet! I immediately asked if soup refills were free - which sadly they aren't. You get your noodles warm so I had to blow on it before I could down it all. And as Chinese-styles go, slurp it with sounds! It was just good, better than I had imagined.

The accompanying iced tea I got was also good. It wasn't the really sweet kind, but it had that taste of "tea" to it. Even though I prefer those really sweet drinks, this was just a different kind of (good) experience.

I was so full by the time I finished the whole meal. Despite thinking to myself that I wanted gyoza or something, I just couldn't find any more space in my stomach.

Service-wise, servers here are quiet efficient, and really nice. Initially I was the only one on the first floor so I commanded all their attention, I even got to pick a couch seat despite being only one person. Haha.

Atmosphere is quite good too, though I might opt to sit on the second floor the next time. I felt a little embarrassed slurping at my noodles with so many people passing by and looking in.

The beef noodle soup was yummy. I love the thick flavor of the soup and the variety of beefs they had. Noodles were al dente, which is just perfect for this type of soup.

We ordered tofu steak, highly recommended. It comes on a sizzling plate with sunny side up egg. I thought it was strange at first to have the egg with the tofu, but it was yummy, especially the sauce.

We also tried the oyster cake. Again, it was quite different from what I expected, but it was something different and interesting. The oyster cake was served on a sizzling plate and had a little bit of sauce versus the usual pan fried one. I still love the pan fried one but this is something unique and delicious as well.

Three cup chicken was ok. Not the best, but not bad either.

Fried dumplings were a bit off. First of all, it came with extra crust that seem to line the pan rather than just the dumpling. Taste was nothing special.

Service was ok, staff was quick and during the order process, was able to recommend and answer questions about the food.

Overall, the food is is good, but nothing extra spectacular.

This is not the ordinary beef mami we're familiar with!! And definitely not like a bowl of ramen which is usually pork or chicken based. I'm a sucker for noodles... For my birthday, all I wanted was a big bowl of heart warming noodles. But the horrible traffic and pending work hindered a visit to my favorite ramen house far far away so I was thought of trying something new.

This place is quite difficult to find because its at the back of Promenade despite it being a big place and outside the mall. Its not where most of the traffic pass. Anyway, I came with my husband and our brood of 4. They specialize in beef noodles but they offer dumplings, ala carte Taiwan-style dishes and desserts and they serve milk teas!

For the beef noodles, they're named in Chinese but they only differ in the beef parts, spiciness and dry noodles. The most basic variant contains beef meat and the most complicated and priciest is that which contains beef meat, tendon and tripe. The noodles are thick and firm comparable to udon. The toppings are pickled vegetables. I got the Three Treasure bowl while my husband got the braised beef. And for our kids, we got a bowl of braised beef paired with fried rice and dumplings.

My order came in and I first thought it looked scant in serving and not so attractive as posted in their menu. But no! Those noodles are HEAVY. Don't be deceived by the looks. All the beef parts were so soft, I never thought tripe can be so soft that I slurped it! The meat itself has its own distinct taste from the broth. For the broth, it has the distinct Taiwanese sweetness with the richness of beef and herbs. There was a good balance of the herbs, the star anise (if my guess is right) is not so overwhelming as in other Taiwanese restaurants. Although I found the broth a bit bland. It seemed to lack salt. I'm very sensitive to MSG and other food additives and I didn't get any reactions after my meal. My husband also liked his braised noodles and for his big appetite, he found his serving filling.

Worth raving too are the dumplings. I had kimchi dumplings which tasted like siao long pao minus the broth, but I didn't get a hint of kimchi there. The dumplings are served with a thin sheet of cornstarch which was crunchy. And their milk teas are a must try. Theirs is pricier but worth the spend because they do use authentic Taiwanese teas and not splashes of flavored corn syrup and thin cream cheese. I always have greentea with rock salt and cheese so I tried theirs while hubby had the chocolate version. Our milk teas was served in slim tall glasses. There's a generous layer of cream cheese with real rock salt in the right amount admixed with the green tea powder so when I sipped it, there's the burst of flavors that made me relax. My green tea is just so light and divine...

The owners were around when we came and they figured it was my birthday because we were all in red so they treated me with a free dessert. Yey and thank you! I had their grass jelly dessert with sweet potato, yam and ube with crushed ice and cream. They claimed it was home-made but I can say the grass jelly itself is so good!! Its was chewy and not so gelatinous as in the canned version. The sweet potato and other toppings were so good, didn't doubt their sources. So its a must try too.

Prices are competitive to currently trending ramen houses. I'll definitely comeback if I'm up for beef noodles and I would try their Chrysanthemum tea.

An authentic Taiwanese beef noodle place that serves deliciously hearty beef noodle soup. This is Taione Beef Noodles at the new wing of Promenade Greenhills.

Rainy weather makes me crave for a comforting bowl of hot hearty soup. Be it a good bowl of ramen, nilagang bulalo /kansi , or beef noodle soup. The inclement past rainy days made that yearning even more pronounced ( I do hope everyone stayed dry, safe, and sound as typhoon Mario drenched the Metro).

Taione Beef Noodles is one of the newer establishments that opened in the new wing of the Promenade. True, there is a long list of establishments around the city that offers good Beef Noodle Soup. But I must say that Taione's rendition certainly elevates that beef noodle soup experience.

First is their claim of authenticity. Taiwan considers their Beef Noodle Soup more than just a native cuisine obsession. They proudly consider it "an art of cuisine". So much so, they hold an annual Taipei International Beef Noodle Festival where their local chefs compete for the championship. Taione brings that champion of their Beef Noodle Soup competition experience to our local foodie scene. Secondly, apart from their in-house Taiwanese chef, they take pride in their cooking method where they slowly stew their soup broth for 36 hours with Chinese herbs and spices thus promising a flavorful soup. And lastly, they promise the use of fresh ingredients. With this regard, their noodles are handmade and only cooked upon the customer's order, thus promising good kitchen-to-table freshness. Much pride of these claims and promises are in fact posted as a huge poster-fixture in one of their walls.

Their menu though short, offers diners a good choice of different Taiwanese favorites. Aside from their different Beef Noodle Soup variants, they also offer breakfast sets, dumplings, pork dishes, seafood dishes, vegetable dishes, stewed viands, fried viands, congee, desserts, and hot/cold beverages.

This visit, my craving was for a bowl of hot soup. I decided to try their beef noodle soup variant best seller, the Three Treasure Beef Noodle (Sa Po Gu Ma Mi). I also was curious of their version of the Cuapao thus also ordered their Mini Gua Pao. I paired my meal with their Hot Jasmine Tea.

While waiting for my meal, the Hot Jasmine Tea was served first. Served in a glass tea-infuser pot over a candle lit base. I liked that the candle kept the brewing loose tea leaves steeping to my desired tea strength and kept it warmed throughout my meal. The fragrant tea, likewise made good palate cleanser.

The Mini Gua Pao (158++) : I loved their version of the Cuapao. Certainly not "mini" in terms of serving size (they were relatively huge!). Two pieces of Steamed Pork Buns. Pillow soft but chewy steamed buns, stuffed with delicious , tender , moist sliced pork belly stewed in a yummy nicely sweet-salty sauce. Topped with pickled mustard greens and chopped peanuts. I loved the fact that even the fatty part of the sliced pork was very flavorful , short of buttery, and seemingly melted in the mouth. The sprig of fresh cilantro leaf was a delightful garnish that nicely balanced the porky-goodness of the dish. I can easily have this everyday!

The Three Treasure Beef Noodle Soup (348++): I loved their bestseller. A big bowl (good enough for a single person's huge appetite or if taken with other main viands, good for sharing) composed of three kinds of meats-- beef, tendon (litid), and tripe , sliced carrots, radish, noodles, soup broth, and garnished with pickled greens. The dish smelled quite aromatic with a waft of delicious beefy-sweet-nicely spicy smell. The broth had a brownish-red color. Upon sampling the broth first, I loved the unique notes of the soup. Though "clean" in taste (not at all oily, or fatty) but rather had a delicious beefy goodness with certain kicks of spices (cinnamon? Anise?). A faint trace of sweetness and a very mild lingering kick of spicy-heat that left a delightful and very mild numbness in the tongue. Not at all overwhelming, but rather gave that delicious warm hearty kick. The beef, sliced into thick chashu sized pieces , tender and flavorful. A different presentation compared to the usual chunks of brisket I have in this kind of soup. The tendon and tripe slices were buttery tender and likewise very flavorful. The sliced carrots and radish, though soaked with the delicious broth, were nicely crunchy and cooked just right. These slices added a good sweetness kick to the soup. The surprise was their handmade noodles. Instead of the thin noodles that I have been accustomed to, their version were wavy-spaghetti like noodles. Chewy and springy which nicely added to the heartiness of the dish. The pickled greens, was a delightful garnish that further tied the soup dish's flavor with a nice sour-sweet kick.

This place easily has become my favorite Beef Noodle Soup house. Would likewise be craving too for more of their awesome Mini Gua Pao. I'll definitely be coming back for these fixes. Will also come back to try their other viands.

Their pricing may be considered higher than the other popular Beef Noodle Soup joints. But I guess aside from my happy tastebuds, this may pretty much be justified by the authenticity of their cooking. After all, this is the first Philippine branch of this claimed "champion Beef Noodle Soup" franchise. In addition, I may give them credit for putting this seemingly usual dish and explaining that in Taiwan, Beef Noodle Soup making is considered an art rather than just a cooking. Pretty much, if Japan takes pride in the art of ramen, this place would give us a taste of Taiwan's pride in the art of Beef Noodle Soup making.

Taione Beef Noodles comes highly recommended to foodies who enjoy such good and hearty noodle soup.

Work perks, client perks = FREE FOOD 128525

HAHA. Anyway, the photo is just 1/4 of everything they gave to my team. We had almost everything on the menu because of... Work. And client. Hehe. 9786

Since it wasn't us who ordered, di ko alam mga tawag sa food dyan. Lol. But the "diced steak" with egg is good, plus that beef with rice (pares but Taiwanese version). I didn't like the fish that much because i dont know, I think it's the spices or the fact that it was cold already. 128533 Sayang I wasn't able to taste their beef noodles and other dishes that they gave to my team. Busog na ko eh.

HEY I RECOMMEND THEIR JUICE WITH MIXED FRUITS! KIWI, APPLE, ORANGE, AND PEACH!!! It was really good! 128525

Finally Tai One is on looloo!

It's already been 2 weeks since I've eaten at Tai One but I do remember ordering the beef tendon noodles.

As my order came I was overwhelmed with the bowl's size but also satisfied given that the noodles I ordered was around 350php.

I remember starting out with the noodle's soup first. It had a very beefy but tangy flavor. I loved it! I don't know what its base was but it wasn't miso or soy, something totally different! And in a good way

The noodles was topped off with a hefty serving of beef (tons of slices!) and veggies such as carrots and radishes.

The veggies got the beef and soup's flavor which made it even more enjoyable. It tasted best with the beef it self too!

The noodles was thick! and tender but not too soft, just enough for it to be chewable! It didn't absorb the soup's taste as much but I suppose that's a good thing.

Then there's the beef.. and all I have to say about it is, it was perfect! It was cooked to good levels of tenderness and was oozing with flavor. Definitely complimented the soup and veggies quite well!

Overall I'm fairly satisfied with it and I would love to visit again when I get the chance to!

P.s. People beside me at the time were ordering other dishes that were not noodles, they looked really good. They were mostly served in hot plates, some of which are like steaks and giant sizzling tofus; definitely something worth checking out as it seems like not only their noodles are good.

P.p.s. They had interesting drinks which I wasn't able to order due to my budget. Another thing that's definitely worth checking out next time I pass by!
