Kuala Lumpur - Beef Noodles at Yang Kee, Overseas Union Garden

KL-style beef noodles can be quite distinct from Taiwanese beef noodles (which happened to be my fave sort) but has its own appeal, culinary-wise.

Whereas Taiwanese beef noodles put a great emphasis on the beef stock which forms the basis for their incredibly delicious soups, KL beef noodles are mainly served "dry", topped with sauteed minced beef, and with a bowl of soup (containing beef slices, minced beef balls, tripe, etc) on the side. Yang Kee beef noodles in Overseas Union Garden is perhaps one of the most established places in town for this version. The noodles were served al dente, and the minced beef sauce was well-balanced. It's not on par with Soong Kee (which, IMO, is the BEST in KL) but good nonetheless.

Besides the beef noodles, Yang Kee also offers stewed beef brisket with turnips. I quite liked the turnips, but found the beef a bit too dry & stringy.

Also on offer is Hakka yong tau fu, which was fine but not as famous as its beef offerings. Service is brisk and turnover of customers was fast.
