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…
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.

Hahaha The chili paste given is so little. 😀
Even Sylvester looked displeased. LOL!!!
Definitely that chilli given is not for beef noodles. Come to think of it, I do miss the very nice Taiwanese beef noodles at a kopitiam at Upper China street. Beef is very tender and broth was superb. Love the Hakka noodles too.
The one at the corner? I did not manage to go back to try the mutton noodles. Not really impressed by the Hakka noodles.
Very generous with the meat there… Looks yummylicious!
It was good but I do know of a couple of places that are better.
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.
Good that the beef was tender enough.
How come you always comment on the earlier posts, not on the more current ones, I wonder?
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!!!
