Kang Beef House @ Jalan Jelutong, Penang

As the name of this restaurant suggested, this restaurant specialises in serving beef. It is rather uncommon to find such a restaurant that serves all beef. Situated at Jalan Jelutong, the place is a bit unfriendly in seeking parking spaces but if you are a big fan of beef, then you should pay a visit to this restaurant.

A small bowl of chili sauce will be served to each customer at the very beginning after you have placed your order. I adore the chili sauce, it was abit sourish but it wasn't too spicy. Perfect to go with beef balls.

Beef Noodles (Rm 6 for small). It depends on the size you would prefer. The ingredients used increase as the price. Do pay attention to the colour of the beef, which is abit red. The beef was thinly sliced and wasn't fully cooked to maintain the juiciness and the tenderness of the beef. The soup was okay but i would prefer heavier taste; the beef balls were superb. They came in a just nice portion where you can have one at a time and the texture was perfect as well. It was what a beef ball should have. Recommended.

The noodles used for the beef noodles. You can opt for kuey teow as well but this is more special to me. Both work well too. Depends on your own preferences.

Crystal beef fried rice and beef ball soup (Rm 12.80), its abit pricey for me as the fried rice was rather common and nothing special except for the beef slices. Only a few beef slices were given although the beef was perfectly cooked. I couldn't ask for more. It would be better if they are being generous and throw in more beef slices. =)

The beef ball soup that comes with the fried rice and dry fried hor fun set. Personally, i adore the soup more than the soup in the beef noodles. Surprisingly, this was much tastier than the one in beef noodles for no reasons. Beef balls were the same tho.

Dry Fried Hor Fun with beef ball soup (Rm 9.80). Same as the fried rice set, it comes together with a bowl of beef ball soup. The portion was rather large, but it was too oily for my appetite. It was a bit tasteless for my friends but it was perfectly okay for me. Nonetheless, beef still tender and juicy. Its good to go together with the chili sauce as well. But, just too oily.

Claypot Beef Soup (Rm 8 for small). Similar to bak kut teh, the soup and the ingredients were served in a claypot. Beef organs were also included. If you are not a big fan of those organs, you can always ask for just beef balls and the beef slices. Fresh and tasty.

Fried Beef Balls (6 for Rm 4.80). Personally, i would prefer the soup version over this. The beef balls were fried with bread crumbs and ended up taste like beef balls with bread. The beef balls were too dry for me although its always nice to dip them with the chili sauce.

This is a must visit place if you are a big fan of beef. The prices for the food are fair and reasonable. No service charge nor government tax. They do serve steamboat too. Its Rm20 per person for the steamboat and a minimum number of 2 person. Below are some information regarding the restaurant, for further information, please contact or ask them personally.
