Yang Kee Peel Road Beef Noodle, or Yang Mooi Restaurant 啤律营记大埔面家 at Pandan Indah, Kuala Lumpur turned out to be our breakfast last Sunday, because our planned destination – Thong Kee Kopitiam was over-flowed with customers.
We thought of having Kopi Peng, Kampua Mee and Croissant Toast with Kaya & Butter at Thong Kee Pandan Indah KL initially but sadly, it was full house by the time we reached. Almost each occupied table has people standing behind, with more patrons waiting outside. That kind of scene: “You faster eat, then you faster leave, so I got place to sit =.=!!. So we switched to somewhere else, driving around streets opposite to Thong Kee, figuring what else to eat.
Ended up at Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee because we had no idea what else to eat. Hahaha. But Summerkid doesn’t like Kin Kin. Passed by Yang Kee Beef Noodles, which was on brisk business. Wandered between Kin Kin and Yang Kee for some time until the tauke soh came out and ask: “I saw you both standing outside so long. Want to try? We’ve noodles, beef offals bla bla bla”. Her voice was so loud that few customers inside began helping to promote further. “Come in, very good!” Haiyi, feeling so pai seh. So we walked in.
Yang Kee has been selling noodles for decades, famous for their dry egg noodles with braised beef brisket. They started in Peel Road KL, but has expanded to have branches in Seapark, Taman OUG and Pandan Indah. The brand is currently run by the second generation. Clear menu, where you first pick your noodles base – egg noodles, mee hoon, hor fun, lou shu fen or hor mei fan. Then get your toppings including beef balls, mixed beef, pork balls, wantan, sui kow, claypot beef brisket, raw beef slices, minced meat or braised radish with beef brisket. You can opt for dry version or soup version.
We had soup version mixed beef with mee hoon and dry wantan mee. Light, comforting soup, topped with plenty of ingredients such as beef meatballs, beef slices, beef tripe. Beef slices were really delicious, very tender. Pretty decent version but Summerkid said he prefer Hong Kong beef noodles.
Dry egg noodles with minced meat. Not exactly up to our liking as it was a tad too oily and bland, luckily their secret chilli sauce came in to save the entire bowl. Spicy kicks, packed with flavours, add in fe spoonfuls of chilli flakes to get more “oomph”.
Didn’t put much expectation to the wantan but surprisingly, the best among all. Slippery smooth wantan skin, filled with generous amount of minced meat. Thumbs up.
Total bill price came to RM16.40 including a glass of Kopi Peng. Overall OK, but not going to comment much on whether it is worth the title “must try beef noodles in KL”, as we seldom order this in Kuala Lumpur.
