Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles

Beef Noodles
Dry version
If you ever visit this food center at Toa Payoh, you almost always see a long queue at this beef noodles stalls; especially during peak hours (e.g. lunch time) – it can take a pretty long time to get your bowl of noodles.

Despite its lack luster appearance, the beef noodles are (particularly the soup and sauce for the dry version) is very tasty: it has a nice beefy flavor without the strong taste of beef (to me at least). The difference between this beef noodles and the one I had at Macpherson is that the sauce is thicker, starchier and sweeter (for the dry version), and the soup is milder and more subtle (does not have any herbs infused - I think); but just as yummy. The beef slices were cooked just about well done which give it a good texture and bite.

As with most beef noodle stalls, you have the option of eating it dry or soup, and have it with beef balls, beef slices, and/or other parts like the stomach, intestine, tendons etc… If you haven’t tried beef tendons, they have no taste on their own (or at least those I have eaten), has a texture like jelly or gluten and is pretty interesting as it seems to have a high amount of collagen. You can find a more detailed review, as well as more photos, on the beef noodles here.

Apparently this beef noodles stall is so famous that it has even appeared on a local TV program some time back.
