Hong Kee Beef Noodle – From Tanglin, Cuppage, To Amoy Food Centre. Michelin Bib Gourmand
Hong Kee Beef Noodle at Amoy Street Food Centre has been listed under the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide 2016.
There are 34 eateries that make the cut, of which 17 are hawker stalls.
The Michelin Inspector said, ”Has over 60 years of history. The tasty beef stock is cooked for 24 hours.”
This stall was previously from Tanglin Koek Road, then moved to Cuppage Centre (I remember this – am I revealing my age?) to its current location at Amoy Street Food Centre.
There was a moderately long queue, about 5 people in line, when I visited during opening hours at 11am.
For this particular food centre, coming at peak hour lunch time could be ‘claustrophobic’ as many office workers around the CBD come here for cheap hawker food. Okay, too extreme a word, but you get my point.
The Hainanese style Beef Noodles cooked by this ‘uncle-auntie’ couple were available in both dry and soup versions, priced at $4, $5, and $6.
Gooey gravy, tender beef slices, slippery kway teow and a sprinkling of salted vegetables made a satisfying bowl.
The winning part was the starch gravy that was appetising yet not overly salty, coating the smooth rice noodles which could just slip down your throat.
Taste wise, it could be milder than the average beef noodles at the food court, to the point that some might think that the gravy is bland. (We, meaning Singaporeans, generally prefer more flavours in food.)
The overall combination was perhaps marred by the generic factory-made beef balls. I couldn’t ask for too much, could I?
