Hands down the best bowl of beef noodles I’ve had. Trust me, I’ve been to the famous stores around Singapore and I dare say that this is really the best of the best.

I especially loved how savory the gravy is right here. Most beef noodles stores serve the noddles with a starchy base, which is just that. Little to no flavour, just thick and starchy. But the one here actually has a nice savory profile to it. Best stirred in with some of their kickass chilli sauce which helps to add a little bite to the base.

The beef slices and balls were tender and fresh. No funky beef smells detected, testimony to the sell out here at Hock Lam.

The soup on the side too was kickass. Not too herbal-ish, nor too bland. It was just the right mix of herbs, which acted as a nice side kick to the powerful noodles.

$7.80 per bowl may not be cheap. But it sure is worth every single cent.

When cravings for beef noodles hit, a relatively good place to go for it will be LeNu Taiwanese Beef Noodle Bar.

I had mine with picked vegetables, which surprisingly came with jalapeños (??), which added a nice kick to the broth but was quite painful to bite into. Literally burst into tears when I accidentally hit into one.

Soup wise was rather thick, but can it compare to its Taiwanese counterparts? I’d hesitate to answer.

I was told that this Venison Hor Fun ($5) is the best thing on the menu here. If it is indeed the star product, then you're better off having the dish elsewhere. The noodles were chewy, sauce was just right, but it lacked wok hei, which I personally feel is the most important part of a good plate of hor fun. I guess it's only saving grace is the huge portion of tender beef slices.

Came to Golden Mile Food Centre craving for my chilli mee but it wasn't opened ): so I gave in to this seemingly 'famous' beef noodle store, plastered with newspaper clippings.

When the dish ($5) was served, I couldn't help but look at the measly portion. Thank goodness for the really 'gao' soup and kickass chilli that saved the day. The cloudy soup is prolly the superstar. Thick, sweet and beefy, it made me wish that I had ordered the soup version instead!

The noodles was okay, though I felt that the gravy was not thick enough to my liking. Mixed in with the residual water from the noodles, the gravy was quickly thinned into some lame sauce. The chilli though, was good.

This beef noodle instantly appears when you search 'Best Beef Noodles Singapore'. Hai Nan Xing Zhou beef noodles is among the most popular in Singapore and it's not difficult to understand why. Think thick savory gravy (yet not too starchy), generous amounts of beef parts (tendons, balls etc), and a rich cloudy soup that's way too difficult to resist! At $5 a portion, it's no wonder the stall boasts a long queue every day! #BurppleCheapNGood

Here at Toa Payoh Hwa Heng Beef Noodles having a slurp-worthy bowl of dry beef noodles ($4 for small; $5 for large). Thick gravy that is slightly garlicky, with a generous portion of beef parts makes this bowl extremely satisfying. What I loved most was its beefy soup on the side, that was so cloudy rich, without the herbal taste which I very much preferred. Plus, I liked that I didn't feel too 'heaty' after the meal, unlike when I had the one from Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles. Bendemeer Market and Food Centre is located at 29 Bendemeer Road. Nearest train station being Boon Keng MRT.

What a marvelous bowl! Possibly the best beef noodles I've had to date, this is so rich, so savory and so generous with its portions. The potency of the beef soup (served on the side) is apparent from its cloudiness. The sweet and robust beef soup is contrasted perfectly against the delicious stew-like gravy, I couldn't help but finish both even though I was still full from breakfast. The beef slices were tender and thinly sliced. They have a nice chewy texture without being too difficult to break. And the beef balls were okay, not stellar. I'd have preferred the balls to be slightly more savory.

Side note: The auntie here is a great saleswoman. Get ready to part with your moo-lah when she upsells you the $5 portion instead (small portion costs $4). The good news is, you won't regret dropping that extra buck.

Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles is located at Block 22 Kim Keat Palm Market and Food Centre, Toa Payoh Lorong 7, on the outer most row. Closed on Mondays, opens from 8:30am - 3:30pm

Hello weekends! It's almost lunchtime and I'm so craving for my bowl of Beef Noodles from Changi V. Think thick, consistent, beefy gravy, slippery smooth Kway teow, and tender beef slices. AND A SUPER AWESOME SPICY-SOUR CHILLI SAUCE ON THE SIDE! $4 for such a huge bowl and even though it's mighty tasty, I couldn't finish it on my own.
