After walking for more than 2 hours at the Batu Caves, me and my friend decided to go back to KL for some local Chinese food at Petaling Street. My friend wanted to go to eat beef noodle which is located at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, near by the Petaling Street. This little beef noodle shop is called, Shin Kee Beef Noodle.
It is strategically located not far away from Pasar Seni Putra LRT station, a stone throw away from the Central Market and 1 minute walk from the Petaling Street’s entrance.
During the peak hour, this shop is packed with people and sometimes you have to share tables with other people too. I am not sure whether this shop is always crowded with people but when we reached this shop at 3.30PM, Saturday, we were quite surprised that there was no body inside the shop. The workers were freely sitting down at the table. I thought they were about to close shop.
RM7.00 for a bowl of fresh beef noodle, I think it is a bit expensive to eat a small shop, non shopping complex area but it is still worthy to give a try once a while as this shop is one of the old-famous shop.
The beef balls are fresh and springy when you eat it. Unlike some of the beef balls which are either powdery and hard to eat. The texture is different than another famous beef noodle called, Soong Kee also. You can order either soup or dry with your choices of noodles. Besides that, you also can choose to have mixed beef noodle which is also costs RM7.00.
The broth is clear and tasty. I did not feel thirsty after finishing the soup 🙂
I prefer the dry beef noodle and so I can mix it with the minced meat. The generous amount of minced meat can mix well with any type of noodle. Overall, it is not too oily, just look okay when I mix with the kway teow.
By the time we finished up our beef noodles and looked around the shop, it was packed with people already. We were lucky to be there early, I guessed. However, you do not have to worry long waiting time, they served the food and drink very fast.
Their business hour is quite long, starting from 10.30AM to 8.30PM. The notice board did not mention if they have off day. I hope their business hours is still remained the same until now.
7A, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
