Just located right opposite the yong taufoo stall is this famous Madras Lane Curry Laksa. there are 2 stores located just right in front of the store. One of the left and one on the right.

Do note that there are dispute within both stalls. Do ask do they serve it to the place where you are seated. If you are seated on another side zone of the other stall, you wont get your noodle as I was keen to try both. So I could not try both at the same time.

In this shop, their offerings is very direct. Soup base or dry noodle that serve along with extra bowl of hot pippin soup along. For noodles, we can choose several types of noodle, from yellow noodle, mihun, kuih teow, and the all important “lou she fun”.

Sin Kee Beef Noodle (6)

in Shin Kee beef noodle, I requested for a mix where it serve along with beef balls, tripe, mince meat and some sliced beef. The beef is cook to perfection where it is thinly slice yet the soup base is just nice. Not too heavy in taste and mild enough for the beef aromatic flavour.  Love the beef balls for its extra chewy bouncy texture.  AS for dry noodle, I usually order Koey Teow and Noodle and stir the whole bowl with minced meat enhance the taste of it,

Do add in their chili which is da bomb. If you love something which is mild and fragrant in taste, then Sin Kee Beef Noodle might be a good option. If you love Beef noodle with a strong punch of flavour, then head over to opposite coffee shop where you will locate Lai Foong Beef Noodle which is also another famous beef noodle shop in Pudu area. In this shop, a bowl of noodle cost about RM 8 – RM 12.

In the city, there are actually lots of things to eat. There are one street in particular that pretty well know for a lot of beef noodles. It really depends on your taste preference as many of them love this stall, Lai Foong Beef Noodle that located in Jalan Tun H.S Lee that operate inside a kopitiam called Kedai Kopi Lai Foong. There is one opposite too that some of my friends prefer over that stall.

For this stall, it had been ages since I last visited this place and few years back I was firstly introduce to it as my ex company boss love this stall alot and the secretary have to drive all the way down here to make a take away for him.

I was also told that not to miss their Char Koey Teow and I tried ordering using Hokkien and obviously they don really udnerstand me. Means not Penang Char Koey Teow but the next stall auntie is surely from Penang that sells Jawa mee and stuff. Would try that next round.

Beef noodle here are pretty good as you stand nearby the stall you can smell the aroma of the beef noodle soup already. Imagine how many times those beef slices have to dip into the soup to make it cook and towards noon, the soup will be thick enough to make it extra kick.

You can actually choose your ingredient. Of course mine, I would love it to have a good mixture with alot of other spare parts.

Here is my bowl of beef noodle. A good mixture. .

I have always love mine with a good mix. We were there around 11.30 am and the soup is strong and aromatic. You can even taste some spices that they have added in there. Beef Slices are good, done medium then let the hot soup make it cook. For an early weekend morning to have this, its sure satisfying. One of a good bowl of beef noodle soup in KL.

If you are new here for the first time, do give it a try~ Parking there is a big issue. You can consider park at Central Market then walk over.
