Good HK-styled Beef Noodles @ Brisket King 牛腩大王 on 7Jan2015

went with friends to shaw lido to watch hobbit 3 on 7.1.2015.

i quite liked the movie though we all thought lord of the rings trilogy were better than any of the 3 hobbit movies. 🙂

after the movie, we went to food republic at basement of shaw house. 2 friends took the toa payoh teochew fishball noodles & one had the chicken rice.

i walked around & decided to try the beef noodles at brisket king 牛腩大王.

so far i had been unable to locate any stalls in singapore that could offer the standard of beef noodles 牛腩牛杂面 one could get anywhere on the streets of hong kong.

the few that came close?? maybe were-

lao jie fang 老街坊 cantonese beef brisket noodles at stall #02-15 @ mei chin market & food centre,

beef brisket noodles 牛腩面 at noodles place restaurant at centrepoint 

S$5 mixed beef soup (牛杂汤) at hwa heng beef noodles@ ion orchard B4 food opera.

the mixed beef noodles 牛腩牛杂面 at brisket king cost me S$9, doubles the HK$30 one can get anywhere on the streets of hong kong.

the noodles were nice like hong kong. the soup was nice but maybe still not hong kong standard. the 牛杂 of beef tripes & tendons were good. somehow the briskets were just not (never) as good as hong kong’s. 🙂

otherwise, this would be the best of all the hong kong beef noodles wannabe. 🙂

Decent Mixed Beef Soup (牛杂汤) @ Scotts Hwa Heng Beef Noodles B4 Ion Orchard on 19Aug2014

mixed beef soup (牛杂汤) – S$5

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.

went to daiso at ion orchard to pick up something on 8.10.2013. thought i would try out some stalls at food opera at B4. 🙂

i tried the bakchormee the other time i was here so decided to give the teochew fishball noodle a shot. i ordered meepok tar. its S$5, i guess they have to pay for rent so ok. the fishballs looked great & they were good & 6 of them, quite satisfying. even though i am low in carbo preference, still a good chilli noodles is what makes it shiok! otherwise might as well eat fishball soup? anyhow the noodles were much below par, just a little done which was ok still fairly qq, but made it unpalatable was the heavy mix of sweet sauce. somehow it managed to taste like yongtaufu! it was way off xin lu’s S$3 fishball noodles (former margaret drive now at mei chin food centre) and of course nothing like the jalan tua kong stall at 6th avenue. won’t do this stall again but the bakchormee stall here was ok, will try that again next time.
