Comfort In A Bowl


Cuz has been talking about beef noodles for awhile. I never made it over to OUG markets so Cuz was kind enough to bring some over to me recently. She also bought fried sui kow and beef brisket with radish. I finally got to taste what she has been going on and on about for the past couple of years. First of all, I love that its mee hoon. Secondly, it tastes...So good, I want to cry! Every bite gets more and more delicious. I'm not crazy about beef balls but these were ok if you like that springy texture. I was shocked when she told me she had bought me a small after I protested it was far too much. But of course, I finished all of it anyway! The brisket was also very good. So tender, it was falling off my chopsticks. I also liked the slight bitterness of the radish. The fried sui kow was not very happening as it was already soft. I think it is unworthy to be served along side the marvellous beef noodles. I want to eat this every Sunday, sit in front of the tv and have a bottomless bowl of beef ball noodles! The picture does not do the noodles justice as a) I tipped the contents of the bag into the bowl and b) I was too hungry to think about presentation.

  1. I think the photo is an excellent representation of these most excellent noodles. I especially like it that the meehoon is not well mixed 'cos you can imagine putting that in your mouth and tasting teh contrast between the drier white threads laced with garlic oil and the intense saltiness of the darker, damper threads. And you can see so clearly the pale, thinly sliced meat that the Chinese tenderise to the point of 'veal-ness'. Talk about texture in flavour. YUM!

  2. Hi there! Just came over from Masak-Masak. Use to frequent this shop before (I think you are talking about the same one). A 'lil too often, I think. Now, quite 'jelak'. They serve 'yong-tau-foo' too.

  3. You know, you just made me realise I was eating beef. That pale colour and beautiful flavour tricked my brain into thinking I was eating lean strips of pork! I feel so cheated!

    Hey tummythoz, since I am new to these noodles from heaven, it will be a looooooong time before I become jelak! Yay!
