This is the much-talked about beef noodles spot in Pudu - Yung Kee Beef Noodles at Kwai Hup coffeeshop. Superb beef consommé, with good quality beef, beef tripe, beef tendon and beef balls, over “lai fun”, smooth thick rice noodles.
Owner-chef, Albert Lai, 43, is Cantonese and born in Sandakan, North Borneo. His grandparents are from Hong Kong.
Tender beef shin, slow-boiled for 7 hours in a Cantonese herbal stock. Other ingredients served with the noodle soup include beef tendon, tripe and minced beef ball.
“Lai Fun” is a thick, laksa-like rice noodle with a slippery consistency and soft texture. Very similar to the type of rice noodles served at Odeon Beef Noodles in Singapore.
