The Beef House 牛肉之家

Its not easy to find specific dialect cuisine nowadays who serves Hakka Food especially those who served Hakka Dishes like Beef Balls and Yong Tau Foo but one of the coffeeshop in Lavendar had done it all at an affordable pricing.

A typical looking stall with faded yellow articles from the media overlapping each other and pasted all over its stall front, this rather "out of place" beef house is really a hidden gem. Even though for its location, the seats were close to full house when we were there and waiting time was quite sometime.

With its bigger portion of beef balls Bee Hoon, the bowl consist of 6 beef balls and a choice of noodles. Soup and bee hoon are on run of the mill but their beef balls are definitely one of the best in Singapore. These balls are made from the scratched with minced meat, handmade too thus the meat balls are not very uniform in sizes. Unlike those packed from the factory, these balls are fresh and free from the beefy smell.

Beef Balls Bee Hoon - $5
 The balls are big, firm and bouncy, giving a QQ texture when you sink your teeth into it. Real yummy stuff!

Beef Balls
 Besides its legendary Beef Balls stealing most scenes in the coffeeshop, they have other Hakka Dishes like Yong Tau Foo. Items from the Yong Tau Foo bowl is fixed, fresh but nothing special to me.

Hakka Yong Tau Foo - $3
 Mee Pok from the Hakka Stall is thinner than the usuals ones and they were topped with minced pork meat to pair along. The noodle is slightly dry over here.

Considering the price, its really value for money especially its beef balls!
