[Note: Last KK trip post!]
Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap is located at Kolam Centre Phase 2, Taman Hilltop. The first thing that caught my attention was the name, “Ngiu Chap”. In most places, it’s spelled and pronounced as “Ngau Chap” which is in Cantonese.
This well known restaurant serves beef brisket noodles. When we arrived, the place was sardine packed. We were fortunate to find a seat inside the shop. Newspaper cutting and a picture of a local celebrity endorsing the Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap lies all over the walls.
I ordered a dried version of their beef brisket noodles. Those who doesn’t know what beef brisket noodles is, beef brisket noodles comes with beef internal organs such as stomach, intestines and not forgetting ligaments. YUMMY!
It took a while for our food to arrive – something you’ll expect from a popular restaurant.
As expected, a bowl of home made chilli lies on the table for patrons. The owners have claimed that their chilli is super spicy and even have a special counter with the words “SUPER HOT!” to sell their super hot chilli.
After taking my first bite, I notice that their meat and internal organs were a little bit tough but their beef balls were quite tasty.
However, I find that there’s too much artificial flavouring in the soup. I know because I’m quite sensitive to artificial flavouring. My throat gets tighten up and my heart beat increases dramatically. Note to everyone, cut down on the soup.

ngiu is hakka for cow
Looks super yummy…
I knew they used artificial flavor for the soup. Its sweeter but its not because of the meat. So I don’t think their ngiu chap is tasty. Loi hin’s ngiu chap have an original flavor, it is located at donggongon, penampang. It tastes better unlike kah hiong’s ngiu chap.
