The beef noodles here is good. Beef is tasty with a nice chewiness and soup is flavourful. Only grip is that the portions keep getting smaller.

My wife and I visited ARC twice to eat at Hock Lam Beef in Feb 2018. We missed both the soup and the dry beef kway teoh because of the closure of Far East Square. Hock Lam Street used to be opposite Fort Canning Fire...More

Taste OK but not impressive, with strong Chinese herb in the soup base, quite small portion per bowl. The worst thing is that it is stated in the official page the opening hour till 21:00. However, closed at 18:00 on Sunday and closed at 20:00...More

Visited the ARC outlet. Order done through an iPad. Easy to order. Ordered the dry version - salty. Thirsty the whole day. $8.90 for a bowl. A bit pricey. The beef was tender, but they only give 1/2 bowl of small soup. Have to ask...More

The order is done through an ipad, a modern twist to this otherwise traditional food stall. The beef noodle soup is similar to the Vietnamese pho with some minor tweaks. The taste is quite ok and the price is not unreasonable.

Slightly pricey for this kind of local flavor dish but the quality of the beef and gravy and noodle is excellent.

The area around China Square has some quite expensive and/or boring restaurants. We found this place on a round-the-block scout for a low key dinner. The menu is a bit confusing for westerners, but with help from the waiter we made our choices. We wound...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
