If compared to other noodle dishes, such as Curry Laksa, Fish Ball Noodles or Char Kway Teow, Beef Noodles are less popular in Malaysia, because many Malaysian people don’t take beef due to religious reasons. However, we can still find many stalls and restaurants in Klang Valley that offer different types of delicious beef noodles. Some beef noodles are served dry with a minced meat topping, while others are normally served in clear or black soup. What type of beef noodles do you like?
