Beef Soup Noodles
Ever since WMW of You Get What You Give introduced us to this beef noodles place, you can see references to it among the blogs (see below for reviews). We finally got a chance to sample this "infamous" beef noodles place on Saturday morning.
Beef Tenderloin served with soup
With our tummies rumbling as it was a late breakfast for us, we ordered a variety of soup and dry beef noodles. Depending on the supply, the owner will get some unusual meat cuts like the beef shank which we sampled that day.
Dry Beef Noodles
Splashie Boy had the Beef Soup Noodles which got his thumbs up. A mixed variety of beef cuts, cow's stomach, beef balls was served with lots of chopped coriander and ham choy (preserved vegetables). Every thing was very tender and the soup was full of beefy goodness which didn't have any MSG. I had the dry version which reminds me of the Singapore type which is served with a dark brown beefy flavoured sauce. I understand from Precious Pea that this is also similar to the one served in Seremban. The sauce is not as thick compared to the Singapore version and has a mild beefy taste. Topped with ham choy, peanuts and sprinkled with sesame seeds, you toss the noodles to coat it with the sauce. We all ordered lai fun noodles - the ones which is usually used for laksa. I would have preferred my noodles with a bit more bite to it as it was quite soft. The dry version also comes with marinated beef strips. Filled with spices, I found these strips a bit dry and preferred the tender beef cuts.
Beef Shank served with Soup
Besides the soup and dry noodle orders, we also were served beef tenderloin and the beef shank. The beef tenderloin was very good - tender pieces which didn't have the beefy smell. The shank was also good but slightly chewier as it had tendons within. Served in a claypot, you find yourself drinking all the soup up till the last drop.
Overall, I liked the food especially the beef soup noodles as the beef broth served with it got our thumbs up. Definitely would not mind returning here to try it with other types of noodles. A bit difficult to figure out the prices as we all shared the beef shank and beef tenderloin but it came up to about RM12 per person. Be warned though - I understand food may take a while to arrive at this place if you dine here at peak times. The stall owner takes quite some time to prepare the food so I suggest you try and avoid peak times like lunch.
