Hong Heng Beef Noodles And Laksa Review: Beef Laksa Stall At Ang Mo Kio

27th April 2018

Beef laksa at Ang Mo Kio

Beef Laksa - Flatlay

While researching on my article on dry beef noodles, I chanced upon Hong Heng Beef Noodles And Laksa. The fact that it sells both laksa and beef noodles piqued my interest and I decided to find out more about this stall. Imagine my surprise when I found out they sell beef laksa! I just knew I had to try out this unique combination.

Food at Hong Heng Beef Noodles And Laksa

Beef Laksa - Dry Beef Noodles

Let’s begin with their Dry Beef Noodles ($4.50/$5/$6/$7). The mere fragrance of this small bowl of beefy goodness whetted my appetite. I grew impatient and couldn’t wait to dig in as I saw the thick glistening sauce and thinly sliced beef slices.

This dish comprises the usual suspects – thick beehoon and beef slices, doused in a savoury, gooey sauce. After adding some lime, I gave the noodles a quick mix and slurped it up effortlessly.

Though the bowl was overflowing with the dark viscous sauce, the tartness of the lime cut through the savoury flavour and blended the whole dish together. Paired with tender beef slices, this is a bowl of comfort that won’t go wrong on a rainy day.

Beef Laksa - laksa

Their Fresh Cockles Laksa ($3.50) came with a generous portion of noodles sitting in a fiery orange broth, topped with fresh cockles, tau pok, fishcake, and laksa leaves.

Many say looks can be deceiving, and this was certainly the case for their laksa. Despite its bright colors, the broth lacked a certain oomph factor. Also, the tau pok didn’t soak up the soup, which was disappointing. However, the chilli that came with the laksa had this kick that saved the entire dish. Besides that, the noodles had a clean bite, while the cockles added a briny taste.

It’s interesting enough that a dry beef noodle stall would sell laksa, and who would have expected them to make Mixed Beef Laksa ($5.50)? Not me for sure. This beef laksa is similar to the previous dish; the folks behind Hong Heng Beef Noodles And Laksa merely switched out the usual cockles for different beef parts, such as beef tendon, tripe, and slices.

This is one for those who want the best of both worlds. The tender beef slices paired with the coconutty broth is something many may not be able to imagine, but it works! The tender pieces of beef offal acted as vessels for the soup, and exploded in my mouth. Remember to add in their chilli for some punch!

While there were many seats available, when noon came, the hawker centre was packed with many friendly uncles gathering with their friends. 

The verdict

Beef Laksa - verdict

Overall, I was satisfied with the food, but not impressed as it wasn’t mindblowing. If anything, I would more likely return for the dry beef noodles than beef laksa. However, I would say that their beef laksa is something that deserves a shot. While I thought it was nothing special, my colleague really loved it! To each his own I guess.
