What I ate:
Crispy Salty Peppery Chicken
  • 7/10
  • Nice and crispy big pieces of chicken
  • On the saltier side20141219_113417
  • Lacked basil flavour
  • The chicken lacked juiciness
Special Series – Fresh Milk Tea with Pearl
  • 5/10
  • Lacked tea flavour, very mild
  • Too much ice
  • Watered down
  • Not too salty
Ground Pork Sauce and Marinated Egg on Rice
  • 7/10
  • This portion was huge
  • The marinated egg was definitely disappointing
  • Personally I love fatty ground pork sauce on top but this was WAY TOO FAT (I prefer this dish from Corner 23) – I’m always on the lookout for the best ground pork sauce and marinated egg on rice
  • It needed more actual meat and less fat
  • The pork floss didn’t add anything special
House Special Beef Noodle Soup
  • 7/10
  • Noodles were definitely over cooked
  • The broth tasted somewhat generic and lacked depth and flavour
  • But there was a good amount of ingredients such as won tons, beef tendons and beef pieces
  • Good portion
Things to Improve on: general flavours, control on the fat
Summary: Beefy Beef Noodles delivers some good portions but it’s definitely not one of the better Taiwanese restaurants in town. The flavours were also somewhat lacking.
