Lao Jie Fang Braised beef Noodles . Pork Rib / Pork Leg Noodles

This stall is just located beside the popular Hai Tang Lor Mee (海棠卤面) which was closed on Good Friday. I spotted an article by Makansutra that recommended their Braised Beef Noodle to be amongst the top 5 favorite choices along with Empress Place Beef Kway Teow, J & J Special Beef Noodle, Toa Payoh Hwa Heng Beef Noodle, and The Beef House.

Mr Chan, the owner, serves Cantonese style Braised Beef Noodle ($5), Beef Brisket + Tendon Noodle ($5/$8), Pork Ribs Noodle ($4/$5) and Pig Trotter Noodle ($4/$5). I decided to go with the large portion of Beef Brisket + Tendon Noodle and I requested to have the chilli served separately. 

The thin noodles were cooked well to retain a certain springiness and it did not turn soggy even after left it for a while. It was tossed in a pool of specially concocted sauce before adding in the rich and sticky sauce from the braised beef brisket and tendon. Those tendons were so good, it was nicely braised to create the perfect melting texture and the beef brisket was equally good, soft and flavorful. 
The preserved soya bean paste is used to stew the beef brisket and tendon for many hours to achieve the desired tenderness. Mr Chan suggested to have it with the chilli for an added flavor. 

This is one of the better Cantonese style braised beef brisket and tendon noodles that I have eaten in Singapore. The other really good one was from Master Tang Wanton Noodle, the stall has already closed and Master Tang has already passed on early this year. Another good beef brisket noodle is from 名厨车老板, a shop along Casuarina Road.
