Beef Noodles @ Shin Kee, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Kuala Lumpur

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.

The minced beef sauce topped over the noodles is so good.Will go there whenever I'm taking bus back at Pudu..

I just went there last week. Wow...super enjoyment. I alway have a bowl with added ingredients for RM6.00. Yes, the minced beef on top gives the powerful we are looking for. So have the noodle dry. If you have soup with the noodles, it does not come with the minced beef! Yummy!

My friends and I frequented this place when my office was in Brickfields and we had to drive out to eat. Now that my office is nearer to the area, we have not been there in a while. I still have good memories of this place though.

Which is better? Ngau Kee or Shin Kee?

boo_licious said...

kampungboycitygal - yup! Much better than soong kee.

bayibhyap - my fav stop over place. Didn't know you could add till RM6 as that woman said only one price - RM5!

lemongrass - go today for lunchie?

precious pea - not tried ngau kee though so can't compare. This one better than soong kee though.

Shin Kee is definitely better. Ngau Kee's standards have dropped drastically. I was addicted to Shin Kee a few years back. I've checked into rehab since.

Fuyooo...I just drove through Jln Silang, Jln Hang Lekiu, Jln Yap Ah Loy from Jln Tun Perak yesterday. MY GAWD!!! Pls don't let me do that again!! Soooo many buses, sooooo many foreign people!! And I thought Sunday was a good time to drive there!! But the place there looks very interesting, a lot of Indian/Nepalese shops and rests. Have you tried any of their food there?

Oops..not very related to your post-hor? I was just reminded by the location of the shop! Oh, and I don't eat beef, so cann't comment! :)

paprika - there's rehab for beef noodles addict? Guess Precious Pea will have to try it herself.

lemongrass - poor thing!

xiu long bao - that's the seng kee version. Nice as they pre-cook the filling for extra flavour.

precious pea - not tried the OUG one. Sounds interesting. Soong Kee is the most popular one, at Jalan Silang.

teckiee - hmmm, you're rite but they were yummy.

keef - no problemo. glad you like it.

kat - I'll blog abt nepalese food I ate around there one of these days. Nice stuff and yeah, loads of foreigners esp during the weekends.
