BRAISED BEEF BRISKET WAN THAN MEE @ KEDAI KOPI KEAN LAI SENG

Nowadays, Braised Beef Brisket Wan Than Mee, a Cantonese delicacy, is getting to be quite scare in the list of hawker food available in Penang. The younger generation of hawkers today barely wanted to continue with this traditional yet delicious dish as it involved a lot of preparations. Choices of beef, mainly the brisket part (the lower chest area, above the shank, which overlies the sternum, ribs and connecting costal cartilages), were braised in some spices (eg. fermented red beancurd, fermented soy bean, etc.) until the meat became soft and tender. The braised beef is then topped on your chosen noodles with some soup broth.

Braised Beef Brisket Wan Than Mee (RM5) also known as Ngau Lam Mee has a more herbal taste compared to the usual beef noodles. Recently, I brought Steven and Allen to try out this dish in Georgetown area. You can opt for either the thick or thin Wan Than Mee noodles.

If you are not adventurous to try out the Braised Beef Brisket Wan Than Mee, you can always choose to have the plain Wan Than Mee served with Char Siew and Chicken slices or you can even order an additional bowl of Shui Kow Soup (RM3 for 5 pcs). But I can assure you that the soup does not have the overpowering taste of beef, neither is the braised beef brisket.

It is very easy to find this stall as it is strategically located along the roadside of Jalan Kampung Malabar off the main road of Jalan Penang. If you are coming from Upper Penang Road, just keep to your left. You would pass Jalan Chulia (Opposite Odean Theatre which aired Tamil movies). Just turn in the road on your left after that. You can see there is another coffee shop by the name of Kedai Kopi Ho Ping at the junction. The stall is just on your right next to this coffee shop.

    I am first one to leave comment, yes. The Gao Lam Mee is different from the usual stall outside. The taste is lighter but the sweetness and freshness of the meat is still in. Nice 🙂

  2. Pete says:

    Very informative abt the Ngau Lam Mee, sure to try it out next time. The last time I had wantan mee beef noodles were at Jalan Alor KL. The one in your pictures looks very good.

    The uncle’s stall is one of my favourite but tstill not the best.
    The nhau lam is teasty and verey very tender, but the want tan noodle needs to be changed lah!

    The ngau lam can be enjoyed on its own or with the the noodles. The uncle don’t like to sell the ngau lan seperately, as Gill found out. But I am a regular, thus I have my purks!

    Eager to try out.. 🙂

    need to be adventurous? hehe …
    beef briskets not so popular here in Msia huh?

    its the strong beef flavour that gives the bowl of noodles such pleasant, lingering aroma.

    the char siew looks kinda bad though.

    the beef brisket looks rather pale… usually what we get here is in darker color after being “braised” ^_^
