A "Native" Toa Payoh Food Trail: Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles - Amazing $4 "Pho" Without Coriander

10:15


More on my Toa Payoh food trail: third stop - Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles at Kim Keat Palm Market. I certainly came to Kim Keat with a goal in mind. I have tried the beef noodles here a few years ago before the big renovation, and I could not forget about it for a long time. It was so delicious, and the only drawback is the long queues deterring me from coming back again. And I am back to try if the quality is the same as ever.



I certainly came to Kim Keat with a goal in mind. I have tried the beef noodles here a few years ago before the big renovation, and I could not forget about it for a long time. It was so delicious, and the only drawback is the long queues deterring me from coming back again. Between then and now, I have fallen in love with Vietnamese beef pho so much, and only came to draw parallels with this upon my first spoonful of the tasty beef noodle soup from Hai Nan Xing Zhou. I mean, it's probably an insult to either parties, but the soup was really very well-infused with the rich goodness of the beef taste. The white thick noodles were also soft yet not easily disintegrated in this bowl, and the beef slices were even more tender than I remembered. It was not as salty as before, which is a welcomed change. And... if you want to try 'Vietnamese pho' minus the "coriander and weird herbs" as so many detractors of pho hate, this is it.




Strange enough, even though it has become better than before, the queues have abated. It only means one thing - $4 for something so good is definitely worth hunting down for.
