Cheng Kee Beef Kway Teow at Hougang has been around for a long time, and even during these COVID times, their queue is always long. Is their beef kway teow that good?
To start off, the woman taking orders was amazing pompous, rude and impatient. My gawd… their business must be really great to be able to afford to be rude.
Anyways, we got the dry beef kway teow at $4. Dry meaning noodles were in gravy while a bowl of soup was served separately.
There were about 3 slices of beef, pinkish but somewhat tough. Besides the beef slices were some coriander leaves and bean sprouts.
Gravy was extremely thick but lack in depth of flavour. It was like corn starch with water and some beef broth. It paired somewhat nicely with the kway teow noodles buried deep under.
Soup on the side was mild with beefy goodness, hearty and satisfying.
Finally, their chili sauce was pleasant and not overwhelmingly spicy. Coupled with their sweet onion chinchalok, it elevated the gravy and noodles to a slightly acceptable level.
No doubt their soup was nice, condiments were pleasant, the other elements were sadly glaringly lacking in depth and richness.
