Question: I'm looking for Taiwan Beer served in restaurants, bars or grocery stores here in Manhattan?

Many thanks.

  1. I don't know. I am thinking somewhere in Chinatown or Flushing must have it? I live in NJ and I have only ever ordered Qingdao in NYC Chinese restaurants.

    Hope someone else can help here.

    1. With little, if any Taiwanese food in Manhattan I would think there's even less demand for Taiwanese beer. Maybe Flushing.

      1. Try asking at Jobee, in Manhattan's Chinatown - on Walker Street, north of Canal. Taiwanese food and Taiwanese owners.

          Thought somebody said they were closed but I see there are very recent Yelp reviews, so they are still the bastion of Taiwanese food in Chinatown.

              But no Taiwan beer (I wish), just American, Tsingtao, and Japanese (Sapporo, etc). Nice people, decent food, v cheap.

        2. I saw Taiwan Beer at the Whole Foods Beer Room on Houston St. They got them in the 6 packs. If you're looking for the cans, Xiao Ye on Orchard just below Houston serves them! Finally!

          1. Jobee has it (3 Howard st in Chinatown). If you live around Williamsburg, you can find it in Khim's supermarket on Driggs ave btw N. 10th & 11th st. Chang Jiang supermarket in Flushing has it too.

            1. They serve it at Hung Ry on Bond St. for $5 a can.

              1. It seems to be getting around I've seen Taiwan Beer at Khim's Millennium Markets in Williamsburg, Whole Foods Houston St, New Beer Distributors on Chrystie St, Hawkers on 14th St, and my favorite spot to drink Taiwan Beer was at Xiao Ye before it closed. :(

                1. I've never been, but the reviews on YELP mentions Hawkers having Taiwan beer. Good luck.


                  1. Hawkers on 14th Street btwn 3rd & 2nd Ave has Taiwan Beer along with Southeast Asian "street food". I've been there twice and really enjoyed their food and everything was very reasonably priced. I believe the Taiwan beer goes for $3 a can.
