Ngau Kee Beef Noodles @ Tengkat Tong Shin
I’ve always heard and read how tasty KL’s beef noodles are compared to Penang’s beef koay teow. So, I simply found a beef noodle stall nearest as well as most convenient to go for me, which is Ngau Kee Famous Beef Noodle at Jalan Tengkat Tong Shin. It is quite popular and has received good reviews by quite a number of food bloggers. Therefore, I looked forward for a good and tasty meal.
OK, first thing I noticed – the noodles are very much alike wantan mee’s noodles. And the beef balls come separately in a bowl of beef soup. The coke glass gave a special nostalgic feeling.. not many stalls are using these kind of glasses anymore. Except the very old ones.
We ordered both dried and soup version of the beef noodles. The dried one does not come with beef balls though. It is simply topped with minced beef cooked with thick soy-sauce. The beef balls are just for presentation purpose, lol.
I hate to admit this, but Ngau Kee’s beef noodles taste nicer compared to Penang’s beef koay teow.. especially the dried one. Really hou hou sek. The beef soup is thick and flavorful, and the minced meat is just awesome. Just my sampah opinion.
I don’t know if the price has increased since I went long before the fuel hike. The price that time was RM5 per bowl of noodles, and RM6 per bowl of beef balls in clear soup.
I also noticed some have stopped patronizing Ngau Kee because they say the quality has dropped a lot. I can really see that because the stall was quite empty when we went, there were only 2 tables of customers during lunch time.
But, if like what they say the quality has dropped, I can’t imagine how good the noodles were when Ngau Kee was at its best. Because this is already very good enough for me! I don’t think you will have any problem finding this place. But still, here’s the map.

This is not the best Wantan Mee in Penang but it is good. Nameless and often referred as the ‘Wantan Mee in front of furniture shop at Chulia Street‘, the noodles here tastes slightly different from those in Klang Valley. The noodles are more more springy, tossed with light soy sauce hence the fairer appearance

A supposedly dim sum breakfast at Tuck Cheong restaurant did not happen because by the time we reached there, everything was sold out save for some buns. Maybe I was too late by Pudu people’s standards but it was only 9am! Desperate for an alternative, we recalled a famous Hakka Mee nearby that some say

Thanks to a friend’s recommendation I have discovered a good Prawn Noodle stall at Jalan Ipoh called Soon Lee Prawn Mee. For a small hawker stall like this, it is surprising to know that it has been visited by various celebrities from HK, and yet it managed to escape the radar of the more ‘heavyweight

Old Green House restaurant (老青屋) is a popular place among Penangites to have Hokkien Mee (or Prawn Noodle in other Malaysian states) either as dinner or supper. Although the noodle is also available in the morning at another ‘day shift’ stall, most of the working people only have the opportunity to savor it after working
