Kau Kee has a long history since 1930. It has huge international as well as local supporters. Kau Kee is awarded Bib Gourmand restaurants under Michelin Guide. Beef brisket, superior broth, curry soup and the iced milk tea are their speciality. I found that the menu is listed on the whole and confusing. For easy selection; Firstly, choose your base from superior broth, curry soup or oyster sauce in dry version. Next, decide on the types of meat from beef brisket, fatty beef or beef tendon. Lastly, settle on the type of noodle from flat/thin rice or yellow noodles. Kau Kee‘s beef and soup are of quality and tasty in spite of having to share the table with strangers.

My partner who ate this commented that it tastes better than Wagyu beef.

The superior broth remains flavourful despite the ingredients were added in. The beef brisket was soft and easy to bite. I believe that heat is such a basic part of cooking that Kau Kee has control it well.
Delicious and piping hot beef noodle is ready to be served.
Food and drink menu in Chinese. Request for English or Japanese or Korean Menu is available too.
