Gubak Kia, Timbre+

Gubak Kia, short rib kuey teow

I read about this stall (#01-27B Timbre+, 73A Ayer Rajah Crescent) on how it's a legacy from the Empress Place Beef Kway Teow. Kinda like MooTeow Chilli Beef Kway Teow but not the same. The genealogy of this particular brand of beef rice noodles and it's relation to Hock Lam or not will not be covered in this blog. 

Gubak Kia servess Teochew styled beef kuey teow and puts a couple of their own spins. Like that beef short rib kuey teow which was honestly, very nicely done. That rib was slide off the bone tender and torched for that caramelized crust. Very savoury and pretty beefy.

The balance of the default flavouring are a little different from both the original Empress Place and Moo Teow. Default flavours referring to the broth that they add (did they even here?) to the dry kuey teow bowl, the amount of chilli sauce and sesame oil. Speaking of this, this chilli sauce did taste extra lime-y. Appreciated that this bowl was further richened by an onsen egg.

I topped it with extra chilli and a generous helping of crushed peanuts. I will come back for more.
