Famous Ngau Kee Beef Noodles

ngau kee famous beef noodles

Famous Ngau Kee Beef Noodles is a simple stall setup in front of a dilapidated row of what looks like pre-war shop houses in the middle of KL. It’s supposed to have really good beef noodles and I like eating things that go moo. The roadside stall was packed with people and double parked cars, which is always a good sign.

I know it’s famous because the signboard says so. πŸ˜‰

Famous Ngau Kee Beef Noodles invented the concept of “open kitchen” before it became the in thing for trendy restaurants. They probably coined the freaking word. Pioneers, they are. The stall also has the time-honored tradition of only offering five (5) different types of drinks. You’ll be spoilt for choice! πŸ˜‰

Ngau Kee Beef Noodles is famous for it’s beef noodles – some of us went for the Mixed Beef with Dry Noodles (RM 6) while the others went for the Mixed Beef Soup Noodles (RM 6). It’s basically the same thing, except the beef balls and tripe is served on the side with clear soup for the dry version while the soup edition has everything in a bowl with a heartier broth. This is the flagship dish of the stall. You can add 10 beef balls for RM 6 or 10 pork balls for RM 10. Okay, that didn’t sound quite right, but I meant the side dishes.

It’s so good PJ people have been known to drive down to eat the beef noodles!

The best thing about the stall is their patented (well, not really, but it must be the recipe of the grandma or something like that) chilli sauce. Best ever.


Famous Ngau Kee Beef Noodles is located along Tingkat Tong Shin. It’s close to Jalan Alor, and you can’t miss the huge neon cow (bull?) on the stall. While the stall would not be winning awards for hygiene standards or interior design anytime soon, you just can’t beat the fabulous beef noodles there.

The large beef noodles (RM 5) come with a generous helping of beef and noodles. The liberal portions can be seen in the chunks of beef on top of the noodles.

This is what it looks like after being mixed up a little. The beef noodles taste great and the broth is hearty too, so you can drink it together with the noodles. I’m not a big fan of soupy noodles but this won me over.

The stall is located at the curiously named How-You CafΓ©.


Shin Kee Beef Noodles Specialist @ Petaling Street


We went to this place after mass on Sunday for their beef noodles.
It’s called Shin Kee and it’s supposed to be famous for their beef
noodles. The location is somewhere around Jalan Petaling, it’s within
walking distance of Kota Raya. Anyway, I had the dried beef noodles and
I thought it was alright, but I’ve had better in Sibu. Remember the old
Chopsticks in town (not the new one in Pedada)? Yeah, those beef
noodles were the best I’ve ever had. πŸ™‚


Anyway, back to Shin Kee, you can ask for a mix instead of pure
noodles eg noodles and hor fun or noodles and rice vermicelli and so
on. I just had the pure noodles one. It came with some concentrated
beef sauce (with beef meat) on top of the noodles and a bowl of soup
with beef pieces (cooked just right, slightly on the rare side), beef
stomach (there’s another word for this, but the term escapes me right
now), and fish balls. The soup was bland compared to the beef noodles
in soup.

Here’s what the beef noodles with soup looks like:


The soup is much tastier than the dry beef noodle’s soup.


This is a photo of the cooking area – the place is clean and looks new, a nice place to eat and the beef noodles are good too.
