This is not a easy to be found location, unless you are visiting China Town, Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur or have hotel nearby. It require a bit of walking if you are coming from closest LRT station. This dish I believe BBC's Rick Stein will fancy for, because he is one of the few will enjoy the beef stomach, tendon, tripe and shin. If you are first time here and never eat any tripe nor tendon, I recommend you should order the basic, fresh beef noodle, not the mix version. The mix will present you the offal. The menu they have is simple, just three, Fresh Beef Noodle, Beef Ball(meatball) Noodle and Beef Mix Noodle. The stall is just located close to one of the exits of Petaling Street and yes, there are many exits. If you can find Lai Foong Restaurant and this stall is just located narrowly opposite side of it at the corner.
The ingredients of this dish are so fresh, the beef are so tender and done until pink red colour. The broth is not thick, but oily. On top of the beef are decorated by minced meat and spring onions. Simple and delicious. The only thing they don't emphasize is the beverage, the variety are so few and changing according to the stocks they have. Like many single dish vendors in Kuala Lumpur, they want the eater to concentrate on their signature soup/broth instead of drinks.
One thing I like also about this stall is the place is air conditioned, cigarette smoke free and the dish are in decent price range. I can be in more of this kind of places.
- 1. Remember to take enough coins for commune bus's ticket. Driver won't return small changes
- 2. Always take a package of tissue paper along. Kopitiam, low cost cafeteria doesn't include one in wash room.
- 3. KL route planner web site: KL (Kuala Lumpur) Journey Planner(http://jp.myrapid.com.my/)
- 4. Type of socket/plug is like the one used in UK, G type(UK).
- 5. Tap water: Recommending to boil it first. A bottle of mineral water costs less than an euro.
