Thaksin Beef Noodle, Clementi
Hey that wasn't too bad. This was a suggestion from a while back (449 Clementi Ave 3 #01-211 with other locations at Harbourfront, Tampines, and Woodlands). It came together nicely, as if the freshness of basil and bean sprouts (and rice noodles, if you choose them here, that is) of Vietnamese pho met the dark beef cubes broth of Taiwanese beef noodle soup. The texture of the meat was almost corned beef-like, in fact. I liked it (and I couldn't help at chuckle a bit at their tagline: "we're bullish about beefing you").
One interesting thing I think I noticed though (can anyone please verify?) was that the S$5 (US$3.10) "Supreme" version that comes with a touch of garlic garnish on top that the standard S$3.50 (US$2.20) version does not have (among other things) that made the S$5 version much, much better. In fact, the broth in the S$3.50 version seemed downright boring compared to the S$5 version, even though I would have thought they used the same stuff (either that, or I just got tired of the broth by the time I got to my second bowl). Well, you've got a full armament of the usual Thai condiments of sugar, fish sauce, vinegar, and dry chili pepper flakes at your disposal to do with as you please should you wish to give it more of a kick. Thumbs up for me - thanks!
