Most people who are born and breed in Kuala Lumpur will definitely heard of Ngau Kee, a small road side stall that been selling beef noodle for years. Shame on me is that although I do study and work at Selangor for 5 years, but I never heard of them until recently.
As always, I will choose the dry version if they have one. The toppings are minced meat. I am however sorta disappointed since many had said it was 1 of the best, but for me it just lack the oomph. Don’t get me wrong, it still a good bowl of noodle, but just lacking something, leading it to be above average max. Besides my taste bud might also be affected due to the fact that I am quite full already before I enter the shop. 6.8/10
There’s few option that you can choose from, either with all pork or beef balls or mix beef. The beef ball is quite good, however, I still find the one in Penang (the one oposite the fire station which I will blog about soon) is better. Besides that, the soup also taste not as good as the one in Penang.
Their famous chili, quite good and goes well with the noodle and beef ball.
The stall is actually quite small, and can accommodate around 10 tables or plus only. When I am there for lunch, there ain’t any other customer, but when I pass by them again at night, it was full and people have to stand and wait for seat. I don’t know is it that they have different cook during lunch and dinner, and will it make a difference, but certainly I am quite disappointed but will certainly give them another chance in the future.
Anyway, Ngau Kee is still a good place to eat if you are staying around at Bukit Bintang area.
Total damage: RM12 for 2 bowl of beef noodle and 1 coke
