Review of Ta Han Beef Soup

Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 June 2018

Located in the same corner building under the old Federal Hotel. Good hawker food springs up here and there in Butterworth, but due to limited reviews, it's hard to find these shops. The shop looks old, a bit secluded and typical old style food court. The only landmark is the Federal hotel icon.
There were 2 busy stalls - 1 was Ta Han beef noodle and another was fried noodle specialist. Decided to try beef noodle as fried noodle stall was too busy.
All the beef noodle were priced the same - RM10 per serving. Options of mixed or single variety - fillet, tripe, tendon or intestine. Additional meat will be charged separately. Types of noodle offered - yellow noodle, rice noodle (beehoon), keow teow or mix.
Service was fast and accurate.
Ordered keow teow/yellow noodle with mix beef. All the beef parts were very well cooked. Contrary to my worry, I was expecting tripe or fillet to be over cooked and tough, but it was so tender and soft. The beef broth was so well blended with the keow teow and noodle. Not too thin, not too thick, just nice. No overwhelm with beef flavour and most importantly not oily.
Though RM10 per bowl might looked slightly overprice in such place, but after tasting it, it's worth every single cents.

Very tasty and fresh beef noodles served. Normal coffee shop setting. Service is fast and customised order for your chosen meat selection is available. Soup is tasty and meat is cooked tender. Instead of noodles you can order normal steam rice, too. I will come back here more often. Price is reasonable.

The beef soup is smooth and tasty. Beef is tender top with crunchy bean sprout and thin rice noodle. Not a bad place to eat as there is also fresh coconut and sugar cane drinks. Unfortunate that the place can be filled with mosquito having a feast while you are enjoying your bowl of goodies.

The coffee shop is located at the Federal Hotel ground floor. Thanks to the previous reviewer who mentioned that it is behind Lotus cinema - otherwise we wouldn't have found it.

The beef noodle soup was a tad disappointing after the rave reviews. It was expensive too at RM9 for a small bowl (actually pretty big) and RM10 for a big bowl. The taste was (I guess) that of beef soup well-cooked. The ingredients were all perfect too - tendons nicely tender, meats cooked just nice too. My sons and I were probably just not used to eating beef soup.

The wantan mee sold be an old lady at the same shop is another story! My husband had that, and boy, were we disappointed we didn't order that! At only RM3.50, it was cooked to perfection. The mee was springy, and wantan mee should be. And the sauce used combined nicely with the noodles and the meat and wantan.

We will go back there again for sure, even though it's out of the way. This time for the wantan mee, and not the beef noodle!
