One of my ingredients of all time is beef tendon. Soft, flavorful, addictive beef tendon. To me, beef tendon to beef is like bacon to pork, they are absolutely delicious little chunks of goodness.

Beef tendons are often found at beef noodle (both Vietnamese and local) versions, often is the keyword, they don’t necessarily have it, nor are they always prepared perfectly.

We came to Restaurant Sun Sea at OUG and stumbled upon this hawker stall that offers Sarawak noodle, fish head meehun, and stewed beef noodle. I didn’t think anything of it until I saw the little sign that says – beef tendon.

So we ordered two bowls – mine just tendon, and Haze had tripes and beef tendon in her version. Of course, you can have it with normal beef too, if you so choose to.

My beef tendon noodle (RM 5.50 or 6) and Haze’s beef tripes and tendon (RM 8) were prepared the Johor style –  clearer but flavorful soup that comes with little chunks of salted vegetable. Similar to Uncle Cheng’s special beef noodle.

This place did not disappoint, over all the soup was good, and most importantly, the tendon were soft and yummy. If you love beef tendons like me, you’ll like it.

While I do find that Uncle Cheng’s beef noodle (and the special tendon they sometimes carry) is slightly better than here, this place is quite a lot cheaper, and does not have the sometimes unpredictable operating hours like Uncle Cheng’s.

Best of all, the same kopitiam also serves one of the best Penang Curry Mee with coagulated blood, and a very decent pork noodle too.

    Haze looks like she’s ready to stalk the camera man!

  2. RM5.00 – RM6.00 for a bowl of Beef Noodles is really awesome. My friends from the West always envy me whenever I tell them the cost of my daily meals. Asia FTW!!!

    • Alex: haha yah, still cheap! 😀

    • Yea but you forget how much more expensive everything else is.

      • Ahhh…not sure how much is the cost of living in Malaysia….but am just comparing with the food cost vs Europe….:D

        • Alex – not ALL food. Godiva Belgian chocolates cost twice as much in Malaysia compared to here in the UK where they are also an imported ‘luxury’ food…

          • Ah ok….looks like I really need to be precise….I meant local food….especially in South East Asia….many big cities in South East Asia you can still get good lunch like chicken rice, beef noodles, nasi campur and many many more for 1.50-2.00 USD. No way you can get a decent meal in Europe or USA with that money.

      • WD: yah, cars especially.. haighh

  3. Yeah, I love beef tendon too! Beef noodles in Sibu always has beef tendon, unless you ask not to have it, same goes for most places in Sarawak. I noticed that’s not really the case here.

    That bowl looks really good. 😀

  4. It looks good. Never pop by during the day though.

    normally hop by for dinner. Lovely chicken in coconut soup and also peppery pig stomach soup. The Tai chow is quite limited but nevertheless good stuff.

  5. tendon is the best! and haze’s looks is priceless.. u piss her off u not sked she crash ur site ar:P hahahaha
