We chanced upon this beef noodle stall while driving around scouting for something to eat in Kulai. We've tried 云来点心, infamous for the steamed buns aka 包 and available at many places, mostly dim sum shops that sourced it from them. I've tried the bak kut teh as well, blogged in one of my recent post 士华肉骨茶. So what else is left in Kulai, I reckon their beef noodle is good as well. I vaguely remembered coming across a stall is popular but have no clues to where it is. A search on my GPS is to no avail as well. What now ? The game plan is to, drive around and give any beef noodle stall a try ... only condition is they have to be crowded.

After some searching with no results, we gave up trying but God helps those in dire needs ... we were famished and decided to just drop by 云来 for breakfast, which it was then we spotted this shop across the street opposite 云来 selling beef noodle. The inside were packed with the breakfast crowd. Great ... let's give it a try then :)

They do serve up a variety of food for breakfast, curry noodles, (both dry and soup) beef noodles and fishball noodle (if I'm not mistaken). We decided to try both the dry and soup beef noodles. The beef and cow stomach were all braised and served piping hot in a claypot. Very unique, since I thought they are usually gathered together in the bowl of noodle.

Whether if its dry or soupy beef noodle, each comes with a claypot of beef chunks and cow stomach. If you ordered yours in soup, you get a spoonful of lard to ladle in your soup, adding that extra "character" to the aroma and taste. If you had it with dry noodles, it comes with a dark, thick gravy and some salted vegetables. The crunchiness of the salted vegetables maintains an additional texture onto the otherwise overcooked noodle. Besides the soup, I can think of nothing better from it. The beef is too small a chunk, something like eating leftover beef shraps. Rating: 5.5/10

Price: 6.0/10
Service: 6.0/10
Conclusion: Don't expect much from the food or service, but if you are just keen to experiment and enjoy the novelty of having your beef soup served in a claypot, please give it a try. Even if not the claypot novelty, the soup is at least worth a try too.

  1. Hi! Perhaps you should try the famous beef noodles stall in Kulai!!!

    1. Yes, I was scouting around for it, unfortunately I couldn't find it. Do you happen to have its address or anything that I can look out for ?

    2. HAHA!! I don't have the address, yet i think you couldn't find it even u have it..haha.. Simple direction for u:if you are coming from JB to Kulai,after passing by the MPKu (as the map above) u will reach a traffic light junction go straight on to the next traffic light junction where the Kulai Centre Point is on the right, turn left into the junction. There is a small alley on the left,which is beside a photography shop and the beef noodles stall is inside!! It opens at around 5.30am and will sold out around 11am. Hope it matches your taste bud :)
