Beef Ball Noodle Soup from Singapore
This dish comes in two varieties in Singapore. A dried noodle kind with a lush thick gravy, and the above type which is a flavoursome soup.
Fabled by many a Singaporean, this dish is certainly more wholesome that your average noodle soup!
I counted three different types of beef in my soup. Meaty beef chunks, shredded beef and, or course, beef meat balls floating on top.
How does beef noodle soup taste?
I was not expecting quite so much meat. Nor did I think the beef would be as … well real as it was. These were real cuts of beef, and not from some unknown parts of the cow. Though, the beef meatballs were very pale, and didn’t quite have a beef flavor to them.
Noodles were plentiful, and the soup itself flavorsome with not much MSG style influence from what I could tell.
Hawker beef ball noodle soup vs diner beef ball noodle soup?
I ate this soup twice. Once at a popular diner, and once at popular hawker stall. The diner price was 3 times that of the hawker. While, the hawker soup was not so finely blended.
Either way, both were very good and well worth a try if you are in Singapore.
