One of the best places to get beef noodles in Kuala Lumpur, Shin Kee has been in the groove for well over 80 years. They don’t call themselves specialists for no reason; the beef noodles are made with a secret recipe passed down the family for generations. Beef meatballs are handmade, the broth is well-brewed with beef and the star of the show, minced meat literally explodes with flavors. Seasoned thoroughly, the minced meat is so flavourful that it will actually accentuate the overall flavor of your noodles. We can’t stress enough how good Shin Kee is with beef noodles.
