Beoy Chong Kee Restaurant is an old school kind of Chinese restaurant tucked behind the bustling Cintra Street in Penang. This restaurant is a great place for a hearty home cooked meal! It has been occupying the ground floor of the People’s Court for a number of decades, with a set up of just a couple of tables.
Our family do enjoy dining at this place from time to time. The menu includes Cantonese staples and one particular dish that keeps us coming back is the specialty stir-fried mixed beef parts (ngau chap).
All the ingredients stir-fried with strips of ginger, and spring onions were coated with runny egg. The beef slices were tender and went well with the ginger. Beef lovers should try out this mouth-watering dish as it is rarely found in Penang.
Fried Mushroom – A good combination of different types of mushroom with mixed vegetables. They were delicious, stir-fried with lots of wok hei and with the tasty dark gravy sealed in it. Don’t be fooled by its appearance!
The egg lettuce warp accompanied by Chinese lettuce can be served as an appetizer or with the meal.

Kong Pao Chicken is a dish of chicken stir-fried with dried chilies, onions and spring onions in a thick and concentrated black sauce. The flavorful pieces of chicken with the onions was extremely appetizing, which calls for additional bowl of rice!
Hoong Siew Fish Head – The most basic ingredient for this dish is the deep-fried fish head, which also includes taufoo, leek as well as mushroom. It has a good flavor combination and the fish was really fresh.
We topped off the meal with a plate of Beef Hor Fun. The beef fried with Hor Fun was done with strong heat from the wok.
Beoy Chong Kee Restaurant has been around for many decades, with the quality and taste of the food still remaining top notch. It is located just two shops away from the famous traditional Chinese baker, Leong Chee Kee.
