Tried their new outlet at Ion Orchard on Boxing Day. The lady boss, daughter of the founder, was there, cooking a storm in the kitchen! Talk about dedication! Taste wise, my bowl of beef noodles (in sauce, beef only) was good, the taste I grew up with. But the accompanying bowl of broth was too salty. Portion wise, everything seems... More

the best way to describe it is herbal pho. the broth is rich with herbs which gives it a dark hue. you can choose the type of toppings/beef you will have and an option to choose the noodles as well. it's filling perfect for a grumbling tummy.

Food quality dropped a little but perhaps they could raise the value of the product, instead of raising the prices. It's a shame it's no longer as affordable to dine there as often as I want to.

Nested in the CBD of Singapore, Hock Lam beef noodle is one of the must try in this island city. This beef noodle has a long history and now is run by the 3rd generation of the family. My favourite is the dry version of the noodle, that comes with thick gravy. I wasn't a beef lover before, after trying... More

We went here during lunch time, and getting a table was still easy though (just right after 12nn). Tasty clear broth, true beef taste..that's it!

This is the new Hock Lam Beef outlet @ the Alexandra Retail Centre (ARC). The soup and dry versions were very good. You select your combination - the type of broth, type of noodle, type of beef (sliced, chunky, balls). This is like Vietnamese Pho except less vegetable ingredients than the Viet or Thia versions. Hock Lam beef were tender,... More

I grew up eating this same beef noodles when they were at the Capitol theater. read about them through the net and when I was back in Singapore last year, I just had to go a taste it for myself if it was true that the same recipes has been used since the early days. Having lived abroad I only... More

Maybe for the fact that i am a singaporean (growing up eating beef noodles), the taste of this beef noodles is average, and nothing to shout about. A good place to fulfill your desire to have a simple bowl of beef noodles, no frills and self service.
