Let’s take a dine-in at Kheng Fatt beef noodles today.

The store is located on the second floor of the Golden Mile Food Centre in the sleepy neighbourhood in the beach road neighbourhood. Notably, this is where the Army market is located and across the Golden Mile complex we visited previously before it closed. Moreover, the hawker stall is manned by an uncle and auntie pair who quickly cooks up your meal upon ordering. At the store, you are greeted by the aroma of simmering broth and spices, promising a feast for the senses.

Notably, Kheng Fatt Beef Noodles offers tad a culinary journey steeped in tradition and flavour. On some background, since 1948, the Beef Noodles store story began as a humble street hawker stall starting out next to the old Odeon Theatre along North Bridge road Singapore. This is before moving here at Beach road. Moreover, the name ‘Kheng Fatt’ is synonymous with authenticity and quality. It is tad a testament to the founder’s dedication to preserving the essence of Hainanese beef noodles. Over the years, the stall has evolved, yet the commitment to traditional Beef noodle recipe remains unchanged, with every bowl served a taste of 76 years of culinary history.

Traditional sliced beef noodles

So, what are the best dishes to go for? On the menu is an assortment of dished served with either sliced beef slices or beef balls in dry or soup variants. Their dry sliced Beef Mixed Noodles ($5) is a good starting point. It is served dry with its gooey flavourful gravy and with a side of peppery soup. Also, I find the gravy having a sweetness which does not overpower the saltish brown gravy.

Additionally, the beef slices are thin and tender It is paired well with the thick gravy. It pairs well with the beef slices and uplift the flavours of the meat, which otherwise be largely gamey by itself, though tender to the bite too. Also, for the meatball enthusiasts, their additional beef balls variant ($6) is a delight not to be missed.

Reasonably priced

Their menu offerings are reasonably priced too, in the $5-8 price range. It is tad higher than hawker rates, but a fair price given the number of beef slices you get in your dish. Moreover, for those who prefer a lighter option, their Beef Mixed Noodles ($7-8) soup variant offers a clear beefy broth served with beef tendon and offal including beef stomach. It is complemented by a zesty hint of lime and chili. Your noodles are served with the peppery soup which is both fragrant and clear enough to balance out the gamey taste of the beef.

Also, I found the noodles, thick white bee hoon are best paired with the gravy. You can’t have the dish without noodles “kosong”. Still, they are perfectly coated with this signature gravy, delivering a nutty aftertaste that lingers delightfully with each slurp. I felt that the dry version of the beef noodles is the best version you should go for. The thick gravy and the addition of peanuts create a symphony of flavours that dance on the tongue.
