19th September 2022

Beef noodle fans will surely know of Hwa Heng Beef Noodle, a stall that spent over 30 years on Orchard Road, including a longstanding stall at Scotts Square’s Picnic Food Court, and ION Orchard’s Food Opera. They’ve since quietly made a comeback at Jalan Besar‘s Earnest Restaurant, a 24/7 kopitiam located next to the Jalan Besar Sports Centre.

Hwa Heng Beef Noodle is something of a foodie legend. The stall has been operating since 1948, and with its origins as a street hawker stall selling Hainanese beef noodles next to the old Odeon Theatre. Three generations of the founding family have taken over the reins at Hwa Heng, but their signature recipes still remain the same.

At the Jalan Besar outlet, you can get your beef noodles either dry or with soup. A bowl starts at $6 for sliced beef, or with just beef balls. If you’d like both beef balls and slices, a bowl will set you back $9. If you’re ideal bowl comes with tendon, then be prepared to fork out $12. Beef stomach is also available as an add-on.

Diners can choose between thick bee hoon or kway teow noodles too.

The soup version comes with a flavourful, slow-cooked beef stock that has a distinct pepperiness. It is also used to blanch the beef slices a la minute, so these remain tender when you’re ready to dig in, unlike many stalls where beef slices are pre-cooked and often dry.

The dry option comes with a silken, starchy gravy, as well as a heaping serve of beansprouts for texture. Definitely enjoy this with a squeeze of lime, and their house-made chinchalok and chilli combo.
