Generic food court beef noodles


The so dubbed Hainanese beef noodle has become ubiquitous everywhere here. That means almost every food court sees a store that sells them and I'm sure most people don't really think of them as a Hainanese dish anymore. It's just generic food court beef noodles which uses mass produced ingredients and can be whipped up to serve the masses in short order with relatively little sophistication in the course of preparation. For $4.50 as a set, this beef noodle from the food court at Century Square (2 Tampines Central 5, S529509) is actually something with little complains apart from the fact that the sauce is uninspiringly flat and the beef balls taste of flour fillers. Still, it beats numerous other food court options of a similar kind and the noteable thing of this dry beef noodle is that the gravy is actually mixed pretty well without the starchy lumps that are commonly present from those in other unnamed places.

I miss the one from Cuppage Hawker Centre. The generic food courts one just don't match up...
