Restoran Soong Kee Beef Balls

By Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

After visiting Mum in hospital tonight, Allan and I decided to go to Restoran Soong Kee Beef Ball Mee. It's as good an experience as it always has been. It's also called Carbon Monoxide Beef Balls because in the early days it was a little stall and the tables ran out on the sidewalk where the buses parked.

The beef balls which made Soong Kee's name. The beef balls were tender, slightly springy, and flavourful. I think they're combined with pork. ;-)

The tripe, the slices of barely cooked beef. The soup is a bit heavy on msg but flavourful.

Lovely mince, with greens, choi sum. Allan ordered me a large and I basically gave him about half of it. But yummy. Noodles were slightly al dente. Not too mushy.

The essential condiment. Their chilli garlic sauce which in this case is served in it's beer jug to be spooned out into small dishes. Dip your beef balls, beef slices or tripe into the chilli sauce and you're good to go.
