7. Niu Niu Kulai Beef Noodle
What you absolutely have to try here is the dry version of beef noodles which is served with a thick starchy dark gravy with the unlikely salted vegetables and fried peanuts.

8. Yang Mooi Beef Noodles
The rightful thing for us to do when it comes to Yang Mooi is to talk about their Claypot Beef Mix. This dish alone requires more than 10 ingredients and is their very own homemade dish. Due to the extensive work needed to cook this dish, it’s limited to only certain days – Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. So, make sure you drop by on one of those days!

9. Restoran Uncle Cheng Special Beef Noodle
It has always been about taking the road less travelled right. While everyone else in Klang Valley settles for the typical Hakka method of preparing beef noodles, Uncle Cheng’s bold enough to try the Johor style of preparing it instead. And miraculously enough, people loved it, attracting itself a neighbourhood crowd in the area of SS2!

Do you know what we really love about Vietnamese beef noodles, in short, pho? The kick you get from the soup when you add enough lime juice. It gets us excited every time we talk about it. For anyone who fancies savoury soup, this is it. Look no more, get it here. On top of that, pho always comes with lots of bean sprouts. Thumbs up for the extra crunchiness!
