Today, we visited Master Heng Noodle shop at Kampung Pandan in Johor Bahru. Master Heng serves a variety of noodles such as beef noodles, Hakka mee, curry mee, prawn mee etc, as well as Hakka yong tau foo.

Master Heng Noodle is at the intersection of Jalan Loo Hong Joo and Jalan Kam Kai Ling in Kampung Baru Pandan. Master Heng was in Setia Indah before moving to this corner shop here a few months ago. I like the kampung ambiance, airy feel, large space and plentiful free parking here.

Master Heng (his surname is Khoo) hails from Mentakab, Pahang state where he sold noodles for over 20 years before moving to Johor Bahru. Mr. Khoo's sifu (master) was a Hainanese, hence his noodles have Hainanese DNA.

The dish that brought me here was Master Heng's beef noodles (price RM12). As I am a beef noodle lover, I am constantly looking out for good beef noodles joints - there ain't that many in Johor and Singapore.

I love this noodles at first bite as they are house made and had a nice springy bite. (Master Heng serves both generic noodles and house made noodles. Make sure to say that you like to have house made noodles.)

Tossed and folded in a savoury sweet soy sauce and lard dressed with fried shallot, the crunchy noodles were delicious.

The dark brown tea coloured watery soup tasted savoury herbal with beefy undertones. It reminded me of herbal mutton soup but with beef instead.

The beef came with bone. The meat was tender with a squeaky chew to the bite. The bones were too big for my liking, so next time I will try boneless options like beef brisket, tripe or offal instead.

We also had the curry mee which came with small pieces of chicken and tau pok (price RM8). When the curry mee arrived, I smelled an aroma which reminded me of those at my school tuck shop in 1960s / 1970s Singapore.

The full bodied curry was sweetish (from coconut milk) savoury with a nice punchy, lingering hot sting. I love it.

The prawn noodle (RM8). By now, Mr. Khoo was slightly taken aback by the amount of food two of us were able to eat 😂

The watery soup had nice mild crustacean savoury flavour with underlying spiciness (but it wasn't as punchy or spicy as the best Penang Hokkien mee).

The house made noodles were springy and yum yum (be sure to ask for house made noodles).

House made dumpling (sui kow 水饺) RM1.50 each. Meaty with added textures and flavours from chopped carrot, jimaca (mang kuang) and scallion.

We love meaty Hakka yong tau foo with vegetables. We picked the brinjal, bitter gourd and long beans.

Information for you 👉 I like the savoury herbal beef noodle soup and Master Heng's springy house made noodles. The Hakka yong tau foo and sui kow were nice too.
