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.
