Best Beef Ho-Fun in Markham/Scarborough?

Looking for saucy beef rice noodles - not food court, somewhere with some nice soups to start, plus crispy greens, roast pork - any ideas (about $60 for 2 for Saturday lunch) - non-spicy (yes, have picky friend)!

Saucy? Just clarifying not the "dry"fry style that is more traditional.

Scarborough/Markham has tons of options. I would want to know where do you guys go for Beef Ho Fun in North York? I don't really see the affordable places or food courts here when I am hanging out with friends.

This is not really a "sit down" option even though you can sit and eat there....but if you like saucy.

Consider going to One2Snacks on GlenWatford and Sheppard and have their Wat Tan Hor it's a Malaysian saucy ho fun dish.
Don't go there on a weekend though because waits can be an hour or two even for take out.

I've gotta to say I'm surprised to hear that.

The last few times I've been there I found every BBQ item disappointing.

Can you specify exactly what you're looking for?

乾炒牛河 - Dried fried beef ho fun noodles
濕炒牛河 - "Wet" fried beef ho fun noodles (or with gravy as SE Asian Chinese
牛河粉 - Beef ho fun noodles (in soup)
There are also a number of variants to the above including what S14_Raven mentioned.

That place also has a bad reputation for serving unclean food. Like dropping some BBQ Pork unto the carpet and serving it anyways.

yup. I wrote about their (Sam Woo) bad reputation here a few years back having witnessed the bbq guy dropped the bbq pork onto the floor and put back onto the rack as if nothing was wrong with it at all.

I can't read Chinese but it's the "wet fried" version which has the meat on top (not mixed in like the dry version). I'm sure it's Cantonese and not SE Asian, not the Malaysian padsew (?)

Congee Queen at Agincourt Mall. But it's always busy. I really like chow fun with beef and black bean sauce
