To be honest, I found out about the beef noodle at Lai Foong kopitam relatively recently via instagram posts of some friends I follow. Perhaps a bit of an embarrassment for someone who love street food, but better late than never, right?

Located at Jalan Tun H. S. Lee (just across the entrance of Petaling Street), Lai Foong is wedged in some of the busiest areas in downtown KL. Parking is non existence, but luckily for those on motorcycle on a weekday morning, situation isn’t nearly as bleak. Another proof that motorcycle is the best invention of all time!

The beef noodle stalls does open for business bright and early (by 8 am or so) and all throughout lunch time. A bowl with everything will cost RM 10 but does include pretty much every part that you can expect, including beef slices, tripe, intestine, beef ball, and my favorite  – tendon. Every part was tender, with the tendon having the perfect consistency that isn’t chewy nor it is overly hard.

The soup base is light yet flavorful, with a hint of soya sauce base yet having enough depth to satisfy. The chili sauce provided too does its job well and did not disappoint.

The beef noodle at Lai Foong certainly live up to its reputation, and has definitely earned yours truly as a customer who’d come back again.

Discuss : KY eats – Lai Foong Beef Noodle , Jalan Tun H S Lee

  1. KY, at first I thoughtit was like beef noodle like Taiwan but your was different and look so good also. I would like to try it when I vist my cousin who in KL for business.

    • Vickie: ya, I’ve had Taiwanese versions too but over here our version is lighter and includes more parts instead of just meat.

    wah, this beed noodle got honey also issit? #typo #lol

  3. I know this place quite some time ago but don’t have chance to visit yet. I want to plan a Petaling Street food hunting again soon, I miss my Bunn Choon egg tarts!

  4. I prefer this clear soup beef noodles to the Taiwan version anytime! Hmmm…for a while I was wondering if you had noodles at a place named Lai Foong Beed.

  5. Try the one across the road, Shin Kee. Opens at 10am only. Lai Fong serves beef noodle ala Teochew style, SK offers typical beef ball noodles. Also, you might wanna check out Lian Bee fried Hokkien mee which is just a few steps away from Lai Fong which opens at 430pm onwards to around 10pm. Lai Fong has another branch in Taynton View Cheras and parking there is so much better!

    • Mark: yea I had that one before too! The one at Taynton I’ll have to go and check out!

  6. I dislike the boring “meat only” cuts of beef so my mouth is watering looking at this variety!

  7. If there’s still food to eat, it’s never too late in my opinion.

  8. Yes, I’ve eaten this a long time ago (back when Petaling Street is not what it is now)….and it’s indeed good 🙂

    • eatwhateatwhere: this place has been around for like 30-40 years, or longer!

  9. imantulen

    hahahaaaa…. never too late.
    I have been there, since I was like 5 years old…
    Now I’m like in my late 50s.

  10. still one of the better ones.. fav place
