Hard to beat

I fondly remember my Arab friend once telling me he had a bad experience eating hor fun. Too bad he never actually got to try the good ones in Singapore before he went back home. Geylang's Beef Kuay Teow is one of the best I've tasted on the island so far, and at $5 is well worth every dollar spent on it.

A simple dish at first glance, the kuay teow comes in thick gravy sauce which bears the taste of a 1,000 herbs thrown in and boiled to perfection. I don't know about you, but at times I burn my brain trying to figure out how on earth they made their gravy so flavourful. The beef is generous in portion and tender in texture. One of the perfect supper food that you can find around Singapore, parking might be a chore since it's in Geylang. If you know what I mean ;)

The best that Geylang has to offer!

I'm a huge fan of the Geylang area when it comes to good food. The more well-known eateries in the area never fail to disappoint, and Geylang Famous Beef Kway Teow is no exception. This place serves some of the best beef kway teow I've ever tasted and despite numerous visits, they've never once left me even the slightest bit dissatisfied.

The beef kway teow is delicious. At first glance, it seemed quite simple, just a heap of kway teow and a generous serving of gravy. However, the smell of the perfectly stir-fried kway teow betrayed it's seemingly unimpressive appearance. The kway teow was smooth and almost chewy, while the gravy was nice and beefy and clung onto the noodles well. The beef slices were plentiful and tender and flavourful as you'd expect.

If anything, the biggest surprise wasn't the beef or the noodles; it was the price! At $5 for a plate of their amazing beef kway teow, there's really nothing to argue about. As such, you can pretty much sum up what Geylang Famous Beef Kway Teow has to offer in just four words.

Fantastic food, unbeatable prices.

Shiok beef kway teow

I visited this place for their famous beef kway teow by my Father's recommendation. I really like beef and he said that I have to try the famous beef kway teow here! We ordered a plate of beef kway teow each and as I was anxiously waiting for it to be served, I looked around and realized that they do serve tze char dishes as well. I would make a mental note to go back there to try their tze char dishes because the beef kway teow is a testament that the chef can cook.

The kway teow was smooth and not clumpy. I hate clumpy and thin kway teow and the kway teow here is nothing like that. The thick gravy makes the kway teow even smoother and pleasing to the palate. The beef is generously sliced and is all over the kway teow. Beef is of normal quality that you usually get at tze char stall, but the texture here is great. The beef does not reek as well. I find that at $5, it is a very reasonable pricing for a generous portion of beef kway teow. You don't get that nice a dish outside often. I would gladly pay the $5 but the next time I visit the store, I will try the other tze char dishes.

Nice dinner place

My friend who was very good at finding good food once brought me to this shop. I was quite reluctant to go initially because this shop was along Geylang Road and we all know what Geylang was famous for.

But anyway, since my friend insisted, I just followed along. We went in a car and there was only three of us. One of my other friend did not eat beef so there were only two of us eating the beef kway teow. We ordered beef kway teow because that was what my friend brought me there to try. We also ordered a few small dishes for my other friend. Overall, the food was quite nice but my friend that was familiar with the place told me that their standards had dropped slightly. I think this is quite common now because most of the kitchens are taken over by foreigners.

One of the best beef kway teows in Singapore!

The restaurant is rather inaccesible by MRT, and isn't very near any bus stop (I usually travel there by car) so most people would be quite turned off by this but trust me, it is well worth the trouble.

Their beef kway teow is one of the best I have ever tasted in Singapore. The noodles are generously drenched in thick gravy, and the beef comes in thick succulent slices that taste extremely fresh. The beef is served in generous portions too, unlike some stalls which are quite stingy with the beef. At $5 per plate, it is absolutely worth your money.

If you don't like beef kway teow, you can also try their zi char which is quite good too, but their beef kway teow is a must-try to me.

Solid & Decent Zi Char

I was first introduced to this store by one of my ex-teachers who is a food lover. They serve a variety of Zi Char dishes with the Hor Fan being their recommended dish. Their dishes seem to be well done in all aspects and will present food hunters with a satisfying experience. However, the place seems run-down and rather dirty. The waiters are your typical Chinese aunties who provide rudimentary service. Be warned tho, at peak hours the dishes seem rushed to clear seats and may not taste as good as it could have been. Aside from its occasional inconsistencies and poor environment, this out-of-the-way store will provide a decent gastronomical experience.
