Short History of Beef Noodles in Singapore

Beef Noodle Soup

Best Beef Noodle Soup in Singapore

Beef Noodle Soup in Singapore is a dish that is very popular. The popularity of the dish has led to various variations being offered locally, including beef brisket noodle soup, Hok Lam Noodles, Lanzhou beef noodles and Taiwan beef noodles to name a few.

According to the National Library Board One of the earliest Hainanese beef noodle stalls in Singapore was started by Lee Suan Liang in the 1940s, but Kian Teck Huan is known to have popularised this version of beef noodles through his Odeon Beef Noodles stall, which was set up after World War II. Although a similar dish can be found in Heng Hai in Hainan, China, this version of beef noodles is considered a Singaporean innovation.

In my humble opinion some of the best beef noodle soup in Singapore can be found at two restaurants: Red Sparrow for Beef Pho Noodles (Vietnamese style) and J & J Special Beef Noodle (Singapore). Both restaurants specialize in beef noodle soup but very different styles but both serve up delicious bowls of noodles, tender beef, and a variety of spices topped with some flavorful chopped coriander.
