The Beef House: Beef Balls and more!
Calling all beef lovers! If you’re at the Farrer Park or Little India area, you’ve got to try The Beef House’s Hakka beef ball soup!
They have various options from beehoon soup to Hakka noodles with a topping of minced meat.
If you don’t like beef, there’s always the Yong Tao Foo soup or the Hakka Abacus Seeds (Suan Pan Zi).
Located at Syed Alwi Road, opposite The Vagabond hotel, The Beef House seems to be always crowded when I‘m there and if you don’t leave office before lunch time, there’ll be a snaking queue!
If the queue is far too long and you’re in a rush, perhaps check out Da Lian Minced Pork Noodle that is just across the road.
Hakka Beef Balls
Each of the balls was oddly shaped, showing that they were made by hand daily. Unlike beef balls that were often mixed with flour, each bite tastes like the real meat!
The soup, even though it looked clear, it was extremely flavourful and light. We could taste both the fragrance of pork and beef.
You absolutely had to try the chilli sauce too, which gave a good spicy kick to the otherwise light meal.
The Hakka noodles also had a great texture. With just a little bit of sauce and meat, the noodles were bouncy and flavourful.
This clearly was a champion beef ball and the best I’ve had!
Hakka Yong Tao Foo
For those who don’t take beef, or if you would want some greens, order a bowl of the Yong Tao Foo.
I actually preferred the soy bean soup a little bit more than the beef ball soup as it was light and refreshing.
Hakka Abacus Seeds
I was actually taken by surprised by the Abacus Seeds! Initially, I thought that it was just a simple side dish to try, but I think it could easily be another reason why I’ll be back again and again. The Suan Pan Zi were impeccably chewy and one of the best I’ve tasted!
Love beef? Love abacus seeds? Love all things Hakka, then make a trip to The Beef House!
