One of my long time favourites here is the Braised Beef Noodle Soup at Din Tai Fung.
What sets it apart? For me, it is the well flavoured rich broth and rich chunks of very soft beef. The beef is sinewy – but cooked until the sinews are soft and break apart easily (yet add a wonderful texture). I like to enhance the flavour slightly with a little vinegar and shredded ginger. At SGD11++ it is also good value – I’m still trying to find one in a cheaper hawker centre that tastes as good
Din Tai Fung has outlets across the island and in many other parts of the world – if you get to one of their places, and you are fond of beef, please give this dish a try. If you want the flavour with fewer calories, they also serve a version without the beef chunks.
