Haymarket hole-in-the-wall Mr Chen Beef Noodle is serving up steaming hot bowls of Lanzhou-style, hand-stretched noodles and Shanghai-style dumplings on the daily. 

Apart from the signature beef noodle — which comes topped with sliced radish, green garlic and coriander — you can choose from a heap of other versions, too. One is topped with pickled cabbage, another is filled with pork and chicken wontons and a third is served with slow-cooked beef brisket and fresh chilli. They arrive with your choice of five freshly made noodle types, which range from extra thin to super thick biang biang-style.

Mr Chen sells plenty of well-trodden Chinese dishes, too — including numerous varieties of fried rice and heaps of stir-fried veggies, plus mapo tofu, sweet and sour pork and kung pao chicken.
