Ever since I was a wee little kid, I always love going down town as it meant visiting my cousins who lived on Petaling Street. They lived on the upper levels of a pre-war shophouse which was only accesible by climbing this steep and slippery wooden staircase. It was pretty scary stuff for me when I was a kid and I used to clutch on to the rails and gingerly take each step as I was so scared of heights. Besides those scary memories, I always had a wonderful time discovering all the great food around the area. One of my all time favourite places we ate just round the corner from their house was the Lai Foong Restaurant. Everytime we went there, we will only eat the beef noodles which to me has never changed ever since I was a little girl.
I still regularly eat at this place whenever I am down town as I love their beef noodles with slices of beef, beef balls and beef tripe. It comes with a flavoursome broth that is sprinkled with chopped preserved vegetables and coriander. I will slowly savour the noodles, eating bit by bit with the broth until everything in my bowl is finished. Another essential bit that must go with my beef noodles (if you can spy at the background) is a cup of local coffee with a dash of condensed milk.
If you do visit the restaurant, remember to stop by the Tong Kee Brothers confectionery which has a stall in front selling egg tarts, buns, biscuits and etc. Their egg tarts are superb - flaky crust and quivering egg centres. When I was a kid, it was a real treat for me to bring to school an egg tart and a coconut bun for my snack.
