Thaksin Beef Noodles at Clementi
Thaksin Beef Noodles has quite a few fans. This hawker stall serves what looks to be Thai-style beef noodles, complete with lots of herbs on top.
I do have to qualify that this was from Sept 2009 (I did say I have a serious backlog!), so I'm not sure about any changes in recent months. This was from the day a group of us curiously gathered to try Nic's "mei cai" (preserved vegetables) mooncake!
The serving (Supreme at S$5.50 above) is hearty indeed, and will satisfy those looking for generous portions of beef. However, I felt that the soup stock was rather mild-tasting. They do claim that they don't use any MSG (or tenderiser).
We could not resist ordering a portion of pad thai with prawn (S$4) to try. But similarly, this one could do with much stronger flavours. But perhaps those who do not like their food too spicy will take to it.
There are various bowl or portion sizes to choose from. Interestingly, the food's also halal. We tried really hard to ignore the tacky tagline. You can check out Keropokman's photos of the dishes from 2008 (I should have had the version with tripe!)
