Here's another great place for good food - Overseas Union Garden which is just off Old Klang Road. There's always something for everyone and if you wander down their morning market, you can even pick various snacks home. After I read Precious Pea's blog entry on this place, I was drooling over these beef noodles. One day, since I was around this area, I popped by the restaurant. Parking is quite a pain around here though as most people jam up the area to visit the morning market and there are a number of offices here.
I ordered the beef noodles which was served with their thin noodles (RM4.30 for small, RM4.80 for big). The texture of the noodles is really nice - fine strands with a hint of a bite. Suspect these are made from just egg and has no alkaline water (kan sui) in them. Topped with minced beef and pork cooked in dark soy sauce, it was very slurpy. Even the soup filled with a mix of beef slice, beef balls and the cow's stomach was good stuff.
I had planned for a small bowl of noodles as I wanted to try a small portion of the Braised Beef with White Radish (Lobak Ngau Lam - RM4.50 for a small portion), Precious Pea had blogged about. This was very good - filled with tender pieces of beef slices with a melt in the mouth texture and chunks of white radish (lobak) in them. Even the stew was good to the last drop. There's black peppercorns and a hint of spices in the stew and everything is tender even the radish.
If you follow the blog for a while, you would know I'm senstive towards MSG. Sadly my senses started to tingle and I got thirsty quickly after eating these noodles and the braised beef which indicates the presence of MSG. Sigh! So be warned - if you're sensitive towards MSG, avoid this but if you're not, they're really very good beef noodles and braised beef with white radish. They also have another branch in Jalan Peel which is opened at night and is near the coffeeshop opposite Queen's Park.
