Best Beef Noodles In Town?
Some of my friends commented that when the market is no-good, I will blog about food or music. Not true, not true. I have been mentioning this in some chatbox before, this is too good to keep it a secret. Shin Kee beef noodles have been around but I only manage to get to it recently. Its addictive, now I'm there on a weekly basis. Its really just a bloody tiny shop on Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. Yellow on the outside. The owner consider herself as a beef noodle specialist - and how arrogantly right she is. You know the food is good when they only open from 10.30am to 3.30pm, closed on Wednesdays. They are also open at night at the back of Hong Leong Bank Berhad along Petaling Street's night market.
If you were to compare with the famous beef noodle store at Tengkat Tong Shin, Shin Kee is superior in every way, seriously. The minced beef and the sauce is finer, the essence of beef is better. Go for the lowshuefun (they sell out quickly) or the yellow mee, I prefer the latter. Go for the dry version, the beef balls and tripe/meat will come in a soup bowl separately. The soup's very good as well, and the beef balls just as it should be, flavourful. Did I mentioned that the chilli/garlic sauce is to die for as well!
Park your cars at Central Market car park and walk across, its directly opposite the popular Lai Foong coffee shop. You can make it a nice outing by visiting Central Market after, when was the last time you were in Central Market. After refurbishment, its a nice clean tourist trap but still very charming.
