Every once in a while when we're down town doing a spot of shopping, this inevitably ends up being a stop over. Located at a tiny space right at the back of a pre-war shophouse, it's hard not to miss this place as it faces the busy main road of Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock where everyone travels past. For me, it's a triangle of food - stop by here for a quick brunch/lunch, drop by at Tong Kee's stall at Lai Foong coffee shop across the road for egg tarts as dessert or a teatime snack and end up at the medicine shop nearby to stock up Chinese dry good supplies.
Although you get a choice of noodles here - my ever favourite is the loh shue fan which literally means mouse tail noodles. Short and stubby, these noodles absorb the flavours of the stewed minced beef beautifully after a quick stir.
To accompany your dry beef noodles, choose a selection of beef cuts with soup - springy beef balls, thin beef slices with a melt in the mouth texture and slightly chewy intestines. I love the tender beef slices and will savour each mouthful with my noodles.
The stall has also adopted an easy way to collect monies from their customer - each bowl of noodles has a fixed price of RM5 whether it's small or big. Depending on which size you order, the person who cooks it will adjust the portions: whether it's more beef slices in the soup versus the noodles. If you crave for these noodles at night, visit them along the busy Chinatown streets as they also open a stall behind Hong Leong Bank Berhad.
