J&J Special Beef Noodle

51 Old Airport Rd #01-162, Old Airport Rd Hawker Ctr (Map) 10.30am – 5.30pm Mon

Senior hawker William bounced back from retrenchment and retirement in the 2008 recession to tide things through by opening this beef noodle stall "with no experience". He is still at it today and the recipe has slowly but surely improved. Their version is not quite Hokkien nor Teochew but a touch of both with some liberal creativity in between. The signature "Teo-Hock" braised beef noodle comes with slices of soft, lovingly braised beef over beehoon or kway teow in a sauce that's very unlike the usual Teochew or even Hainanese versions. The gentle hints of herbs in the beefy stock with a dark soy base lend a comforting sweetness. The raw onions and coriander atop seal the deal and his tangy chilli sauce will do you in. The rice bowl sets with good grade Japanese Kobe beef and their side orders of braised tendons and even oxtail are great supporting cast to the meal here.
