Traditional Hainan Beef Noodle (传统海南牛肉粉)

Advertisements

Few weeks ago I was on my usual Tuesday food trail when I decided to visit the very old North Bridge Road Market & Food Centre. I was there ages ago so I decided to check them out again.  

I really took my time to scrutinize on what to eat cos I knew I need to plan my indulgence as I would be eating at a few places. Then I found this interestingly wrong spelling signage stall which I though could be the hidden gem I was looking for. I placed my order of the bigger portion with extra ingredients (greedy me!) and the food came shortly after. 

 

Wrongly spelt ‘Tranditional” signage. Could be on purpose! Who knows?! ;P
  
My beef kway teow arrived. looks just too awesome lah!
  
Now let me introduce the ingredients inside. This is fresh sliced beef.
  
Beef brisket. Very tender.
  
Beef tendon. omg this gel-like tendon is just heavenly.!
  
Beef tribe. Love this a lot!
   
Beef Balls may be factory mass produced type but theirs are added with minced fried flat fish
   
Respect to the hawkers, finish your food and lick the plates/bowls clean! (Joking about the licking part…)
 

Rating: 5/5. 

Taste: Nice beefy thick sauce with hints of Chinese herbs used but yet not too overwhelming. Condiments used are pretty authentic. Salted veg, grounded peanuts suggest that they have been around for some time. I was told by Aunty they used to be from Blanco Court… That building must have been torn down some 20 years ago. 

Portion: My $6.00 portioning is quite ok. I didn’t ask for extra Kway Teow to be added. 

Service: Self-service.

Ambience: Hawker center.

Price: $6.00. Normal bowl size starts from $4.00.

RTE: Yes definitely!

Location: 861 North Bridge Road Food Market #01-93. Mon-Sat: 11.30am-6.30pm, 10pm-3.30am. Closed on Sundays. Tel: 90544476

The problem with not regular blogging is that you would have a lot of backlogs of reviews to write about and at the same time not realising that your blogsite has more than 10,000 unique hits!  Great to know that those that hit my site are not just from Singapore but from the Asia Pacific region! Hence I had to pul myself out of bed and start clearing what I have documented and hope you guys like it as well! ;P

Was in Yuen Long again for food and I actually like being there discovering lots of good food in the area. I have HK friends that even ask me, what the hell are you doing in Yuen Long??? Just because it’s far from the city, it doesn’t mean that it’s not happening. It’s happening for me though… food wise! ;P Checked out this place fishball place before and this time decided to review them.

Shop front
Selection of different seafood paste which you can buy home to cook with your noodles or a la carte.
All the balls, beef, chicken, squid, prawn, fish, etc...
You don't get these prices in Tsim Sha Tsui or Causeway Bay...
Very small shop only... super crowded during peak hours...
Our bill... collectively...
Friend's order of wan ton and fish ball soup
My order of fish noodles with squid balls
The noodles are made with fish meat!
Yummy!
Address of the place

Rating: 4.5/5

Taste: Freshness is in the air… the balls are really nice… the fish noodles is not bad but I reckon it’s just a gimmick. I’ll have normal noodles anytime.

Portion: Average

Price: HKD$46 for 2 bowls

RTE: I might… but there are so many choices in Yuen Long!

Location: See last pic. 🙂
