Flavourful broth and chilli sauce set dish apart from the rest.

New Seaview coffeeshop in Paramount Garden, Petaling Jaya is a makan place that needs no introduction.

From politicians to the man on the street, many people have made their way to this landmark.

I recall how a well-known Opposition leader and his supporters would regularly have their makan at this coffeeshop.

Seaview is famous for its hawker stalls, namely the pork noodles and a rojak buah stalls.

My buddy Alfa Charlie had told me about a ngau yuk fun (beef noodles) stall in the coffeeshop.

Eh Samo, you must try la, its quite good,” he said.

The last time I trusted my good friend, a coffeeshop owner in Petaling Jaya threatened to sue me.

Why? Because I gave their iced coffee a negative review as it was too sweet.

I found the stall located in an obscure corner of the shop and ordered their “special”.

The lunch crowd.

The stall is called “Cow Brothers” and their noodle dishes are priced from RM7 to RM12 a bowl.

Beef is pretty pricey, it’s hardly a surprise to see food prices skyrocketing.

I waited patiently for my noodles to be prepared and was pleasantly surprised with the size of the portions served.

My bill came up to RM14 for the ngau chap fun (tendon, beef and tripes noodles), but there was no cause for complaint.

Why? The food was really good!

I found the beef broth to be rich in flavour.

Beef meat balls, best with chilli sauce for that added kick.

This stall has one of the best Ngau Yuk Yeen I’ve tasted in a long time.

And the extra “kick” comes with the chilli sauce that got me sweating.

On the Samo-scale, I would rate this ngau yuk fun stall at 8.9 out of 10.

Later, I asked the stall owner whether she opens late and learned that business hours are from 11am to 2pm.

The woman who prepares the noodle dishes said she was from a Hakka clan that originated from Seremban, Negri Sembilan.

Apart from ngau yuk fun, the stall also serves tai pou run (Hakka noodles with minced pork) and I hope to taste it someday.

New Seaview coffeeshop (GPS N 03°06’37.3” E 101°37’38.0”) is located off Jalan 20/7 in Petaling Jaya and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Dear Sam,
    I have been an avid follower of your column and your recommendations have been spot on most of the time. But this beef noodle shop in New Seaview is overly rated except for its soup only! For RM 7.00 I was only given a few measly meat cut out from the NGAU KUAT, one piece tendon, 2 small slice of tripe (sorry beef balls sold out) and a small portion of mee! I will never ever eat at this stall anymore! I will go back to the Puchong stall (Chinese Kelantan Lady who will give me my moneys worth anyday!

    Dear Samo
    Agreed with Tan on the ‘ngau yoke fun’. I also follow Samo column especially on 2 of my favourite food i.e. beef noodles and mee rebus. It was a total let down of the high rating for Cow Brothers (New Seaview) – maybe should be over scale of 20. Only ok was the soup -was clear & sweet (‘ching thim’). The portion – miserable (have to order other additional food to eat). The service – so,so – I order one bowl beef ball + 1 bowl tendon balls – was given 2 bowls of beef balls (I ask – owner says they look the same but actually taste different ??? – as if a foodie like me do not know the difference). The soup – with balls – miserable mini bowl of soup. The chilli – hot but not that great. The price RM7 + beef balls of 5 = RM12 (soup), RM8 + RM5 (balls) for dry version. (for that value I might as well go to air-con Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap). My son took some pictures but how to recommend and post on FB. What happen to your benchmark rating of the Lim Siong Kee (KB Beef Noodles of Puchong Jaya) as the best and top choice for 2013. I have try Lai Foong, Shin Kee, Soong Kee, Tangkak , JB, Kampar, Ipoh, Penang, Seremban, Kuantan, Sabah, Sarawak, Melaka etc, etc but nothing beats the Kota Bharu Beef Noodles (my opinion).
    Is Samo so scared of being sued if give low ratings as currently the ratings (2014) are quite high as compare to previous years. On the matter on scaling, the high rating for Mee Rebus – Pak Yussuf – I try and opine that it should be over scale of 20 as well; as even the pasar malam ones that I used to eat is on par ??? lol. My benchmark for Mee Rebus is the Perak and Penang ones with the cendol – tempting & sedapnya.
    With prices going up & up & up – I hope that we customers will get value for money worth. As the Cantonese says – ‘pang, lang, chang’ meaning cheap, nice and awesome. This should be the criteria for us consumers/foodies. I hope Samo can take this critic comments objectively and positively so that we foodies will be happy to follow. Thank you.
