Tangkak Beef Noodles - 133, Jalan Imbi, KL

Zipping down the North South Expressway and hungry we quickly turned into Tangkak for a quick meal of the best beef noodles in town. Alas we missed the boat. The shop was closed for the day. What a bummer! But that was about 2 years ago.

Chilli sauce unplugged (left) which is my favourite esp. those with zero food conditioner and chilli sauce with lime on the right.

But then when I was not looking, I chanced upon their branch at Jalan Imbi while running an errand. This time round 2 years late, I would not want to missed the opportunity esp. when it dropped literally on my lap. Wow, I really missed a good bowl of beef noodles.

I salivated with Pavlovian timing while ordering. This is not the table manner to have, but then who cares. The dogs of Ivan Pavlov did not either!

Thick and murky soup base. Sad that it was tainted with moderate MSG. But then the beef, tendons and tripe were just too good. Well maybe I am exaggerating. Its been a long time. Above average I ventured to suggest. The beef was on the dry side as it had yielded its best to the soup. Still a great bowl of noodles. Consoling and warming.
The beef balls were good. Slightly gamely, a reminder that this is beef! Robust and firm as beef balls should be.

Good find, for Tangkak's version has always been one of the more famous ones.
I had the Shin Kee's version not long ago, still good but somewhat lacking.
