A privileged group of us had the opportunity to enjoy Chef Albert’s beef noodles for dinner a while back.
If you have not heard of Albert, perhaps you have heard of the “famous beef noodles in Pudu“?
His stall in Kwai Hup coffeeshop is this acclaimed beef noodles.
What made his version stood out among others was his “Hong Kong” style of beef noodles with the star of the dish being the robust, herb-tinged and aromatic broth.
Albert honed his skills during his work stint in Hong Kong. Since his return to Malaysia, much to his chagrin, he had not been able to enjoy a good bowl of HK style beef noodles.
Though F & B wasn’t in his plans, he eventually started a stall in KL offering HK style beef noodles, backed by his years of being in the kitchen of a HK noodle restaurant.
More than just a business, Albert hopes to educate the public about authentic HK style beef noodles.
On weekdays, the selection is simpler but no less enjoyable.
You get the wonderful, fork tender brisket, bouncy beef balls and slippery tendons.
Available add ons are the honeycomb tripe and stomach.
I highly recommend the honeycomb tripe here as it was soft, succulent to bite and slightly gelatinous.
I’ve had those that was rubbery and have the tendency to stick to my teeth, and gosh, I hate those.
No doubt honeycomb tripe is pricier but Albert’s are incredibly good and a must-order if you’re a fan!
On weekends, you can splurge on weekend specials such as US Striploin and Wahyu Beef version from RM25 onward.
Yeap, this may look like a hawker stall, but the ingredients used are of top notch quality.
There is only one place that I’ll recommend for beef noodles now (HK style) and this is it.
Prime cuts of succulent meat in a bowl of attentively boiled, rich broth plus that honeycomb tripe makes for a very happy meal!
Though unnecessary, the chilli dip is good too with balance of spiciness and sourness.
