Uncle Cheng Beef Noodle, Section 17

so much has been said about this beef noodle that i knew i had to go looking for it if i ever venture in PJ’s Section 17. i am not too familiar with the area hence it took me a little while to locate the place. but if you people have been to food foundry, you won’t have too much trouble finding the place.

the beef noodles here are of the Johor type. the dry version is basically lai fun served with beef slices, tripe, beef balls slathered with a thick, beefy sauce and topped with sesame seeds, char choy (preserved vegetables), peanuts, spring onions. One can have the option of adding some special dried beef slices which are well marinated in a dark sauce.

Even if the meat were tender and delicious, I didn’t think much about the combination of the noodles and the sauce though. the peanuts and sesame seeds added a nice crunch but did little to enhance the flavour. i thought the dried beef slices were a bit on the salty side. still, i did enjoy the beef broth served with the meal. perhaps i should opt for the soup version next time.

julian, the stall owner was a friendly soul who even passed us his name card. however, do note that he does take his time preparing the noodles if you happen to be there during the lunch crowd. but if tender beef slices and parts are your thing, it’ll be worth the wait.

  2. I prefer the broth version too. Find the dry version so so only.

    epicuriousgirl says: guess the dry version is too different from what we are used to in this part of m’sia. 😛

  3. heard so much, read so much but i really havent got to try this yet..so it is around the food foundry area eh? well thats a relief because i actually know roughly where it is..let me put this in my to-eat-list.

    epicuriousgirl says: it’s not where food foundry is exactly, but further down the road.
