UPDATES (17 May 2007):
I received an email from Hubby's friend (makan gang member) this morning and he corrected some of the facts on Yang Kee Beef noodle as follows:
1. They are not related to Ngau Kee but to the stall in Peel Road or the one behind Kota Raya (Not my fault, Hubby gave me wrong info.)
2. Minced meat is pork not beef (need to clarify at next visit)
3. They are open from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m. or until all sold out.
4. The Stewed Beef Brisket with Radish is called Lor Pak Lam in Cantonese.
My favourite place for a good bowl of beef noodle has got to be from Yang Kee Restaurant, situated at Overseas Union Garden (OUG). I was told that they are related to Ngau Kee Beef Noodle in Tengkat Tong Shin but personally, I find Yang Kee much better in terms of quality control and of course, cleanliness. In fact, they offer more than beef noodle here as they also serve freshly made-on-the-spot yong tau hoo which are selling like hot cakes. Do expect to wait cos this place is always packed; both eat-ins and takeaways.
I usually go for the egg noodle which tasted really good with the minced beef gravy. Although I prefer noodle soup but when it comes to beef noodle, one should always go for dry to get the maximum enjoyment out of it. As for ordering options, firstly, choose your noodle (kueyteow, egg noodle, vermicelli or lou shue fan) and the size of portion which is priced at RM4.30 for small and RM4.80 for large. Then, choose the part of beef you want (mixed, beef balls, raw-sliced beef, brisket, stomach). If you feel gluttony, you can even order separate bowls of the beef parts.
Since only the two of us, we didn't order any Yong Tau Foo so no review on it this time. But do try cos as i remembered, it's quite good too.
Yang Kee is located at:
52 Jalan Hujan Rahmat 2 (same row as Steven's Corner)
