Braised Beef Tendon and Shank Noodles

$7.50 · 2 Reviews

At first glance, the Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre doesn’t seem like the place to find mind-blowing eating experiences. Vendor stalls are basic, with the kind of efficient service you’d expect of hawker dining.

However, stalls like Give Me More with its elevated beef noodle soup embodies much of the spirit of hawker eating: unassuming cooking that is affordable and deliciously authentic.

The soft chunks of braised shank constitute an uppercut of pure bovine intensity. The tendons are slippery, fatty deliciousness. The broth is slow-simmered, flavoured with aromatics like star anise and peppercorns. And the noodles are spot on, more pleasantly toothsome than al dente.

🗒 Braised Beef Tendon & Shank Noodle ($7.50)

Tucked within Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre, this hawker stall dishes out authentic Taiwanese dishes that "for a moment" transported Burpple Tastemaker Blueskies Cottonclouds back to Taiwan. There are five items on the menu, which includes Jajangmyeon ($4.50), Potato Rice Bowl ($4.50) and the crowd favourite Braised Beef Tendon and Shank Noodles ($7.50). The latter comes with unbelievably tender tendon and flavourful beef shank, swimming in a robust beef broth. For a quick lunch fix, you won't go wrong with the Braised Pork Rice ($5) that comes topped with a perfectly molten chilled egg.
Avg Price: $5 per person
