Zheng Yi Hainanese Beef Noodles

Beef noodles is one of the local delicacies that you can find in Singapore, it is a noodle dish that is served either dry or soup, topped with beef. You usually can customize the beef parts or just the meat itself. Yes, you did not read wrongly, beef parts like stomach, intestine, cartilage. If you are not the adventurous sort, do opt for the normal beef slices instead. The noodles used are usually “keow teow”, which are flat rice noodles, or “thick bee hoon”, which are thick rounded rice vermicelli/noodles; both of which are white and smooth in texture.

Today, my colleague and I decided to eat-in for lunch and what did I buy? Why beef noodles of course (I guess you could already tell from the post’s title). So off we went to a coffeeshop at Tai Thong Crescent along Macpherson Road to Zheng Yi Hainanese Beef Noodles. The coffeeshop is a little run down and there’s no air-conditioning, but I think the beef noodles are pretty nice. There used to be more stalls at the coffeeshop.

The dry version consists of thick gravy full of rich beef flavor topped with peanuts and salted vegetables, adding texture and giving bursts of extra flavors. The the beef slices are tender and the beef soup is very beefy, cooked from the essence of all the different parts of the cow, with a subtle hint of herbs and pepper. While the soup version tastes a bit more mild but still just as beefy.

The prices have stayed pretty much the same and ranges from S$4 to $S7, but the quantity has somewhat lessened. So if you want to have a fuller stomach, adding more noodles or ordering a bigger bowl might just do the trick.
