This noodle store happens to be right in my neighbourhood, and I've been eating it for three years plus. The noodles are just the right consistency, and the beef has flavour. Comes in either dry or soup, but I generally pick soup because this soup is hardcore. Expecially just before they close, the soup becomes extremely infused with pure beef flavour and it's really, really delicious. The chili they provide has a zingy, tangy sweetness to it, without being overpowering. The price leaves a little to be desired, but for what you are getting, really worth it!
Best beef noodles I have had in a long term. soup broth is rich and hearty. Dry version also good - gravy not too starchy, but flavourful. $6 for fully loaded bowl - not cheap but worth it
You have to make a choice between the 'dry' or the soup; with all parts of the cow (tripe, meat, etc), or with just the meat slices. Go all the way and dig into the 'dry' - gravy version - with the works. The soup, although gorgeously murky in its appearance, is not as flavourful as the thick, maroon-tinged gravy that thoroughly coats the thick bee hoon noodles. The meats are prepared to good textures, with none of that beefy stench. Make sure you get here early - Uncle is only open unil 7pm on Fridays, and 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Absolutely yummy beef noodles. Had the soup version and finished every drop of the delicious beef broth. As the previous reviewer has mentioned, the beef slices were nicely cooked - tender without being bloody. The chilli sauce dip was made just the way I like it - sourish without being overly spicy.
Found this place opposite the old jackson centre while looking for the famous prawn noodles place on the other corner of this block. (24 Feb 10)
I like the soup beef noodles as its cook simply, the soup is a mild gentle beefy soup. If you like your beef noodles soup to have a strong beefy and herby taste, this place is not for you.
The beef slices were cook just right for me, as it was still tender but not bloody.
I have yet to try the "dry" gravy type, so i might try that the next time i am round the area.
To sum up, I would say its a nice bowl of beef noodles soup at $4 (min), BUT its not one that is super duper good that I will travel all the way to macpherson just to eat it.
Do check out this area for its other famous eateries, eg. prawn noodles, bak cho mee, herb soups, wanton mee and sweeten soy bean curd.
Edit 25 Feb 10: Oh I forgot to mention that they used the chicken rice type chilli sauce, which I like as it provided the spicy and tangy complement to the mild soup.
