Try another one…

I had to go all the way to the other side of town that morning as I had something to settle at the branch of the bank there.

I got there early so I decided I would have breakfast first. I did not want to go for the kampua mee here again and the one here (not the one in the blogpost) did not look all that promising – there was only one customer in that coffee shop.

In the end, I decided to give this one…

…a try.

The shop sign appears old and faded but the shop itself does not look as shabby…

…and there were quite a lot of customers there, not too many or else I would go some place else so I went inside to see what they had.

There are three stalls but only one was open. I did not actually look at all the photographs stuck all over the stall though. I saw they had Taiwanese beef noodles so I just ordered that and went to take my seat.

Instead of the usual own-made chili sauce that one will get when eating beef noodles, they brought a teeny weeny bit of pounded chili with dark soy sauce added…

As you can see, even Sylvester was somewhat flustered by that! LOL!!!

The noodles (RM7.00)…

…came soon enough and yes, it was not too bad. Their own handmade noodles could have been less firmer – I thought it was a little on the hard side and personally, I wouldn’t mind if they had used our local alkaline-free not-so-yellow noodles instead. They were very generous with the beef and yes, it was tender enough – I did not have a problem with it.

On the whole, I would say there are nicer ones elsewhere but this would be good enough if you happen to be in the vicinity and you have beef noodles on your mind. Should I be dropping by here again, chances are I would try something else instead.

CARFIE KOPITIAN (2.264438, 111.845137) is located at CityVine, along Lorong Upper Lanang 12B, in the block to the right of the bank there.

  1. For rm7, there seems to be many pieces of beef in the noodle soup. Tender beef? Wow! Must be very tasty! Here the beef is usually quite hard to chew though it falls apart at its grain but when we bite across it’s grain, it just won’t break apart.

    Sounds like the frozen beef we used to buy at our supermarkets here, so frozen till discoloured, black in colour! Thank goodness we can get pretty good beef here now and yes, this one was tender enough for old toothless me, did not have a problem at all with it. I wish the broth had a much stronger beef fragrance and taste though.

  2. Very generous with the meat there… Looks yummylicious!

    It was good but I do know of a couple of places that are better.

  3. hah..hah…Sylvester on the mug was so appropriate! I love beef noodles but none in my area now. The Sarawak Nuromen near my office has called it a day.

    LOL!!! I thought that was cute, Sylvester! Oh? Nuromen closed already. Tried it when I was in Kuching end of last year, jolly good. The clear soup version, not Taiwanese-style.

  4. Gosh, how fast opinions change. I used to always think a crowded restaurant was a good sign but now I avoid any place with too many people.

    LOL!!! I am never a fan of crowded noisy places…and if you know the Sibu Foochows, it can get really noisy if a place is packed. Will totally ruin my appetite!!!
