As his parents helm the streetside Shin Kee in Chinatown at night, Anthony runs their daytime restaurant along Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. Look out for the 'Beef Noodles Specialist' signboard and enter to join the steady lunch crowd. What sets their Beef Noodles (from RM8) apart from the rest — the area boasts many — is their distinctive dry noodle rendition, featuring full-flavoured minced meat topping with a bowl of umami-packed beef broth on the side. We recommend the lou shi fun and Hakka noodles, for their smooth but bouncy textures that complement the meaty sauce. On beef, the crunchy tripe and bouncy beef balls are household favourites not to be missed. Now that the shop has expanded next door, finding a seat has become less of a hitch but you should still expect to share tables with other patrons.
Avg price per person: RM10
