Penang - Kham Kee Beef Steamboat - Sliced Beef

Our family went out to enjoy a sumptuous beef steamboat during the weekend. We had this steamboat at Kham Kee Restaurant located in a house along Gajah Road, Tanjung Bungah. This restaurant specialises in beef steamboat and some may recall that it was previously in Gottlieb Road, nearby Peng Hwa Chinese Girls School.

The steamboat comes in two sizes, starting from RM80 onwards to about RM100. Besides the pot, several plates of other ingredients are served separately. Among them are vegetables, beef stomach and a plate of finely sliced beef.

Three of us went for the RM80 pot. It comes with a variety of beef cuts, mainly the flavorful beef soup alongside beef balls, tendon, brisket and flank. Do check out soo sean’s blog for the ingredients. They have other types of soup too besides the beef soup, if you want a change from the normal beef soup.

Myself enjoying the steamboat with my son

We thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the paper thin slices of beef which needed just a few seconds of dipping into the hot boiling soup! Just have to wave the meat back and forth in the bubbling soup and its done! It was awesome when accompanied with the dipping chili sauce.

There is also noodles such as Koay Teow  and bean sprouts which we added into the pot after we were almost done with the contents in the pot. As the meal progressed, the soup only turned sweeter and sweeter, and it was a joy indulging the vegetables! It was indeed delicious with the chili sauce.

For those that do not take beef, Kham Kee also serves other varieties of steamboat, with a selection of seafood, chicken, pork and lamb. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and I personally love such steamboats especially on a cold rainy day!

They used to be in Gotlieb Road next to Waterfall Hotel. They were quite famous, even for the cows internal and external organs(if you know what I mean).

I am a beef steamboat lover and this place originates from a kampong house(used to be called “Gu Pui Leow’s Gu Bak Loh”)If you compare then and now,it is like heaven and hell in terms of quality and quantity. I would not recommend to any beef lover to patronise this place.

Used to be our family favorite restaurant but didn’t know that they have moved to this location.Thks for the info.We also used to order Fried Fish head which were quite delicious but have to make advance booking first.

J2Kfm – No worries, this place serves other varieties of steamboat, with a selection of seafood, chicken, pork and lamb.

Jason Wong – I visited the old place a few times before.

hApPy HaPpY – Do call before you visit them.

SimpleGirl – All the ingredients were served fresh and the soup is indeed flavorful.

foodbin – I too know many friends that don’t take beef due to various reasons.

NKOTB – Look out for their steamboat with choices of seafood, chicken, pork and lamb.

tanlh – I do not know much of the original taste but I do noticed most businesses that have been passed down tends not being able to keep to the original taste. They might be some changes and some might turn out even better than before. Anyway my family do favour the steamboat in Kham Khee. If you happen to know of any better beef steamboat in town, do kindly share with me.

Jessie – Nice to know about the fried fish head…thanks for sharing.

taufulou – Haha…indeed a good idea to keep the body warm with a flavorful & meaty pot of steamboat.

It looks like korean + local huh.. from the koay teow and bird chili :P

I like Kham Kee since it’s back at Gottlieb road. I love its signature beef steamboat.
