Hwa Heng Beef Noodle

Do you remember the old Odeon beef noodle from Bain street across the Odeon Cinema from 1976 to the 1980s? 

The 74 years old traditional Beef Noodle ceased operations, closing down its last stall in June 2021 due to the pandemic and also partly due to the 2nd generation owner's old age. Afraid that such a traditional recipe in the family will be gone, the 3rd generation took over and revive the family business. Therefore the legacy lives on!

The stall is said to be opened daily from 10am to 2pm, since we are early, there were only 1 to 2 pax in front of us. We got ourselves both soup and dry versions of the beef noodles.

Our Orders

Simply love this dry version of beef noodles for its sauce is thick and luscious over the thick white noodle. This gravy is robust and flavourful topped with blanched beansprouts. The generous amount of beef paired with the lime juice, Chinchalok (Fermented Shrimps) chilli was heavenly.  The beef slices were tender and I really enjoyed the bowl, not forgetting the bowl of soup that comes along with the meal, it was also full of beef flavours.

The soup version is as awesome. The thin-sized slices of beef were blanched in the beef stock, they were cooked perfectly to soft and tender and placed on the noodles.

The stock has spices and herbs which make a sweet savoury taste with no herbal overtones. The bowl comes with 5 beef balls and overall there was no gamey taste.

If you are more adventurous, you may want to try out the bigger bowl where you have an assortment of beef items.

I opted for the dry version and the noodle bowl was as big as the soup bowl. The soup was filled with a handful portion of beansprouts and mixed beef items like meatballs, stomach, lungs, tendons etc.

Soup with Mixed Beef

The pet peeve was that I could not enjoy the soup as beansprouts taste had overwhelmed the sweet ans savoury beef soup.

This is arguably the best beef noodle that I have in Singapore so far.  We are so lucky that this gem has been rediscovered!
