Beef Noodles is a dish of rice noodles, garnished with sliced beef shin, brisket, tendon, stomach, bean sprouts and beef meat balls.

There are 2 main variations on Beef Noodles.

The Teochew version of Beef Noodles uses flat rice noodles (Kway Teow), and is normally served in a rich, meaty beef broth.

The soup is made from stewing beef bones, brown sugar (Gula Melaka), blue ginger and beef extract (Bovril) in a beef stock. However, the final broth should be clear.

The Teochew version has additional garnishes of pickled mustard greens, ground peanuts and grated blue ginger.

The Hainanese version of Beef Noodles uses thick rice vermicelli noodles (Chor Bee Hoon), and is normally served in a thick beef gravy.

The gravy is made from stewing then reducing beef bones, beef stock, sweet potato starch, dark soy sauce, star anise, cloves, and cinnamon sticks.

The Hainanese version has additional garnishes of pickled mustard greens, fermented shrimp paste (Chinchalok), lime juice, and parsley.

Most stalls that sell good Beef Noodles normally have their own enhanced receipe for the soup and gravy, adding in a variety of herbs and spices to differentiate their dish.

Some stalls also create their own chili sauce, which is served alongside the Beef Noodles.


I normally prefer the dry version of Beef Noodles, with a side of soup. That way, I can have the best of both worlds!

These are the top 3 stalls which I feel serve the best Beef Noodles in Singapore.
