Hock Lam Beef


One of the best known beef noodle since 1911 which carries the old traditional way of serving Teochew Beef Kway Teow in Singapore. Hock Lam have the most awarded beef Kway Teow in Singapore. Their recipe had been passed down from generations and despite the changes, standards in business and quality of food is all well maintained.

I first came to know about them was during years back when I chanced upon their shop in Far East Square, China Street and it gave me a total different view point from a normal bowl of beef noodle.

Drinks - Barley & Lime
What make Hock Lam Beef so popular is perhaps its 13 kinds of ingredients that used to brew their gourmet soup and their homemade chilli sauce without seeking any mass factory production. Other added advantage will be that the soup was boiled for 24hrs and beef were all sliced manually. The beef were tender and no tenderizers were being used.


Initially I was abit hesitant to visit  them in Alexandra Retail Centre as I'm afraid that the taste might be different from what I had. There were also no queues during our visit, perhaps it was a common scene during weekends in the Retail Centre.

We ordered both dry and soup version together with the drinks for the meal.

Dinner
 The dry version comes with a bowl of soup separately and kway teow was all covered by the luscious sticky brown sauce topped with bean sprouts, vegetables, spring onions, preserved vegetables and chopped peanuts.

Beef Kway Teow Dry
While the soup version tasted as good as before with yummy beef and herbs flavored soup.When comparing the soup of the version, I find that the soup for the Kway Teow Soup is sweeter than the dry version but both were real tasty.

I will highly recommend Hock Lam Beef for its quality and taste. For those who want to avoid crowd, Alexandra Retail Center will be a better choice for dining on the weekends.
