The minced beef sauce as well as the beef balls plays an important part in determining how tasty it can be. The type of noodles that goes well with beef is usually the wanton or mee hoon (rice vermicelli). Firstly, the wanton noodles must be cook or blanch to the right texture resulting into a springy and firm texture. Must not too soft or with the kan sui taste too. The rice vermicelli or better known as mee hoon is also a good to eat as it absorb the beefy sauce thus making the noodles very flavourful.
I was introduced to this awesome noodles many years ago by my boyfriend (now husband) when we go dating at Sungai Wang Plaza. The taste have not changed but the price has indeed increased in leaps and bounds, okay blame that on inflation.
The best way to savour the Ngau Kee Noodles is to try out the Dry version. The wanton noodles goes well with the flavourful and savoury minced beef. I'm always amaze by the generous toppings of this wickedly delicious minced meat on the noodles. I would usually asked for more chopped celery leaves & spring onions for my noodles as they really bring out the wonderful taste too. An excellent combination that almost never fails!The soup was equally fragrant too. You can smell them from afar, that's how you can distinguish a good one from the rest. Infused with aromatic spices and beef bones which penetrate fully into a thick beefy soup, it leaves you with a lingering taste. The home made beef balls are quite large in size - meaty and bouncy, one class above the rest that I tried or tested. Don't forget to eat this with their amazing sweet & sourish chilli sauce as they really goes well together.
Well, Ngau Kee Beef noodles was an easy, delicious, comfort food that have maintained its quality and standard through the years, and for that, it gets a thumbs up from me .....
