Restoran Do Do Do in Tangkak Johor is all Beef Beef Beef 东甲肥仔牛腩面 JK1510
Dropped by Restoran Do Do Do today on the way from JB to KL. We conserved our stomach space, endured a bit of famishedness till we arrived at Tangkak which is nearly 2 hours drive from JB because we wanted to feast on Do Do Do's famous beef dishes. The drive from JB to KL has never been more enjoyable :-D
Do Do Do is a beef specialist - beef, beef, and more beef - beef soup, claypot beef, steamed beef.
Lady boss Mdm Teo and her husband Fei Zai 肥仔 learnt their craft from their Hainanese master twenty years ago and later developed beef dishes of their own. From traditional Hainanese beef noodle soup, Do Do Do made a name for themselves with their signature claypot beef dishes and steamed beef specialities.
We started with Do Do Do's beef noodle soup.
It's a good old Hainanese beef noodle soup. The soft rice ribbon noodles (kway teow) and meaty beef soaked in a beefy tea coloured herbal broth. The beefy meat, tripe and tendon were all tender and juicy with beefy flavour and sweetness.
Do Do Do's traditional Hainanese beef noodle soup is good but what really set Do Do Do apart for me are their claypot beef and steamed beef dishes.
After the old school soup, we had Do Do Do's Claypot Spicy Beef 酒炒牛肉. It's various beef cuts in a claypot with a scoop of brandy.
The beef with spring onion is tossed in the hot claypot with the brandy before eating.
The same tender juicy meat cubes, tripe and tendon in a savoury spicy sauce with beefiness and brandy notes.
Round three, Do Do Do's bubbling hot Claypot Beef.
The beef comes in a full bodied broth with savoury sweet herbal flavours and beefiness. Except for the beefiness, this broth reminds me of the herbal type of bak kut teh.
In this dish, the beef is sliced in thick flat big slices. The marbled meat was tender, juicy and beefy - really lovely for beef eaters.
Do Do Do's fried tofu skin still has a delightful soft crisp even though it is dripping wet from soaking in the beefy herbal broth.
After the third round, we were still not willing to leave yet. But, we couldn't find anything sufficiently light to slot in in that last remaining space in our tummy. Would have loved to try the steamed beef (we had that in 2012) but have to leave it for the next round as we were over 3/4 tank full already.
So we happily settled for another round of Claypot Beef - it's superb (what law of diminishing returns? :-D ).
Remember to try Do Do Do's unique chili sauce. It's a layered spiciness of chili peppers, ginger and a few spices delivering a sharp spicy sting.
Our bill for our very satisfying brunch came to RM61.50 in total.
👍 One of my favourite beef places in Malaysia and Singapore. Plenty of full bodied beefiness in all of Do Do Do's beef dishes. A must try place for beef eaters.
For beef eaters, Do Do Do in Tangkak is probably the ideal stop over for the drive between KL and JB, or JB and Malacca. Do Do Do is just 1 minute drive from the Tangkak toll (Exit 235). Once you paid your toll, head towards Muar, look up that very moment and Do Do Do is there - it is hard to miss :-D
The large corner shop is airy and spacious. There is also an air conditioned section at the adjacent shop lot.
