Lagoon Leng Kee Beef Kway Teow, Singapore
There was a recommendation the other day to stop at this place (East Coast Lagoon Food Village, Stall 33) on the way back from the airport in Singapore. I wasn't quite sure which stall to look for, but when I saw the big "Beef Kway Teow" sign, I knew I had found it. Having eaten all of that pho over the past week or so though, the sweetness of this broth caught me by surprise, and not necessarily in a positive way. Fortunately, the mildly sour and grainy hot sauce saved this for me.
Now, I'm not exactly an expert in this dish, so admittedly I couldn't really tell the difference between this and other bowls. But the meat (and tripe) was impressively tender and of good quality, so I presume that that was one of the reasons why the Makansutra guys gave this place a full three chopstick rating. Due to the sweetness of the broth, I doubt that I'll be making any huge effort to come back to it, but I'm glad that I did try it (despite having eaten soup noodles for so many days now), so thanks for the recommendation. Keep 'em coming!
