went to uniqlo at ion orchard B3 to buy something, so dropped by food opera at B4 to check out the stalls.
ordered a S$5 mixed beef soup (牛杂汤) w/o noodles or rice at hwa heng beef noodles.
there were just 2 or 3 slices of beef, 2 pieces of braised beef, 3 beef balls & quite several cut of stomach – decent enough portion for S$5 here i guess. the soup is the usual singapore hainanese beef noodle type soup (stall was supposed to be from 1948), which is slightly sweet & light closer to vietnamese “pho” than thai. pretty good. don’t have the robust beefy flavours & punch of HK beef noodle soup which was ok as i was not expecting it to.
my preference would still be beef noodle soup at thai noodle house, the beef brisket noodles 牛腩面 at noodles restaurant and at Lao Jie Fang 老街坊 Mei Chin Food Court. but i am also quite happy with this for a change. 🙂
overall, pretty ok.
