Kam Do Restaurant (2nd Visit)


Updated: 23rd Jan 2015; This restaurant is closed.

It was a tough choice deciding where to eat out last weekend. While we wanted to find a new place to blog about but we all so wanted to make a repeat visit to the Kam Do Restaurant. We blogged about Kam Do about a month ago.

It was a bit more crowded this time. We had to wait for 15 minutes for a table. It seems like the wait was because we arrived just at about 11:30 am where they changed their breakfast menu to the lunch menu.

We ordered three separate dishes to share among the four of us. Suanne ordered the “Kam Do Premium Set Menu”. The Premium Set Menu costs $9.98 and for that she gets the following:

  • A garlic toast (we opted for the soft bun)
  • Chef’s Special Soup, which is a tomato/vegetable soup
  • A choice of two sides (we chose the smoked salmon and cod fillet cutlet)
  • A main dish (we chose the Baked Portoguese Clam and Crab Meat with Spaghetti)
  • Milk Tea

The soup Chef’s Special Soup was just right. We prefer soup to be watery, not thick. The bowl was large and frankly, the soup itself is enough for me for a meal.

The bun served was the chinese style bun which is much more soft, fluffy and airy. It is sweet and goes very well with the Margarine.

We like the cod fillet cutlet which is prepared japanese style. The red stuff above is the … smoked salmon — it does not look like smoked salmon to us at a first glance. It looked too red.

The Baked Portuguese Clam and Crab Meat looked very unique and different from the food that we normally would order. Although it does look good, it does not really taste as good as we expected. I believe they did not use fresh clams and the taste does show. It really does spoil a good dish.

We also ordered the King Size Set Meal. For $8.98, we get a main dish, a chinese soup and milk tea. For the main dish, we get to choose from about 12 different selection. We selected the Crab Meat and Mushrooms E-Mein in Soup.

The E-Mein was not bad — not great but just not bad. The bowl looks good on the top where they had egg swirl with mushrooms. However, underneath the top layer, the soup is rather watery and tasteless. Also, we can’t detect much crab meat on this dish.

The third dish is selected from what is known as the “Your Delight Combo”. In this combo dish, we get to select two main items served in a plate. There is more than a dozen choices to select from. We selected the scrambled egg with ham and mushrooms and the Japanese Deep Fried Pork Chop. This also comes with a chinese bun. This is a good deal as it costs only $6.98. This happens to be the best of the three dishes we selected today.

All in the total tab came up to $32 including tips and taxes. We’ll definitely go again to Kam Do. We like the huge menu and the choices we had.

  2. Hi Erick: I should check out the Low Po Beng at Kam Do’s. The only time I tried that was when I bought some during my wedding to distribute to Suanne’s side of the family.

  3. We like Kam Do over Cafe Honolulu especially for breakfast. We went to Cafe Honolulu to try something different and the food was OK, but our friend also saw a rat scurrying behind him.
    Needless to say, we’ve been going to Kam Do ever since. We haven’t really tried their lunch menu..perhaps next time. Their “Old Wife’s Cake” or Low Po Beng is awesome and reminds me of the famous Yuen Long Wife Cake in HK.

  4. The soups look great! I’s sure like to sink my chops into that cod filet cutlet.
    I like your descriptions of what you actually receive from the kitchen, as well as your honest evaluations. Hey, you are making me hungry today.
