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.

  1. been there only on night time but it was like 7-8 years back. So it seems the quality has dropped huh, sad case.

  2. oh my…looks really good. I didn’t even know this place existed in KL. Do they have more noodle varieties besides wantan mee?

  3. they hire foreign worker to cook one, yucks

    vk: When I went it was a Chinese who prepared the noodles.. I think he was Ah Ngau.. cause I heard someone called him that name

  4. it seems that they are operating near to 24 hours a day…Maybe that explains the drop in quality due to the fatique of the owners….i still like them though (the dry ones), the soup variant is a little salty this time round…

    vk: Drop in quality or not, I still find the noodles quite tasty (esp dry ones) haha

  5. itz been aqround 10 years i didnt go back to this stall bt i just went to it yesterday when i read this article. Bt i wont be back anymore.

    1) the place is terrible , very bad parking place , even road side u have to pay rm1 to those “road security”…

    2) the place is full of any ppl u can imagine, foreigner, black skin ect.. girl plz dun visit alone. ITZ a famous place which ” compliacted” with lots of ” gangster”

    3) the spoon utensil (spoon + sauce plate) is …. grade A++++… please bring a tissue to clean it or bring ur own chopstick. itz wet and oliy.

    4) i wait for 20mins while the seat wasnt full that time., the noodle served after i finish the meat balls.. waititng for my dry noodle for 5mins after they serve your beef balls with soup.

    5) The dry noodle is ” banjir” … when pull up those noodle, there will be 2/3 darl think soup leaft in the bowl.. yiak.

    the 1 who cooked the noodle should be a uncle bt now is a auntie who cook the noodle with ” just make it cooked” style.

    Plz … dun visit this place.

  6. Hi Vkeong…do you know where Ngau Kee move to? I went there twice and the stall is no longer opened. They never leave down any contact number. Any way you can find out since you are a food blogger? Thank you.
