[Kuala Lumpur] Soong Kee Beef Noodles (颂记牛肉丸粉) at Jalan Tun HS Lee

Soong Kee is KL’s iconic beef noodles spot - it turned 71 years old this year, and is still packing in the crowds.

Soong Kee’s signature egg noodles are topped with a delicious, dark-coloured mince of beef and pork, flavoured with fermented soybean paste and the restaurant’s secret blend of herbs & spices. On the side is a bowl of clear, intense beef broth filled with beef balls, tender beef slices and beef innards & tripe.

The house-blend chilli sauce is also a must-not-miss - indispensable in adding a sharp stab of heat to the food.

Back to Soong Kee again during my visit to KL last month. Its beef noodles are still, IMHO, the best in town -springy noodles, tasty beef/pork/soybean paste topping, and delicious beef consomme with slivered beef, pork tripe and beef balls on the side.

The restaurant is well-patronised, even at the late post-lunch 3pm.


One of my favorite joints! Love this place.

Do you know what happened to a nightime only alley hawker store serving Singapore style (add your own chili powder) prawn noodles around the area?

I’d been asking around and my KL friends think the hawker has retired - all pure conjecture on their part, though.
