Koay Teow Th'ng @ Lebuh Melayu, Penang

Being one of the Kochabi in Penang, this Koay Teow Th'ng stall has been selling Koay Teow Soup around the neighborhood for thirty over years at Lebuh Pantai (Beach Street) off the junction of Lebuh Melayu.

I was eager to try it out for quite some time as I'm someone who is really into hawker food in Penang. I have also drove passed this stall for many times before I have finally tried it myself.

I've order a bowl of Koay Teow Soup (Large) for RM4.00 and another bowl was mixed innards (chicken gizzard, pork intestines) and some blanched choy sum for another RM3.70. The total was RM7.70 and I was really full as the portion was really big.
One big focus would be the comfort broth that boiled with chicken and pork bones that made it tasted rather rich and flavorful. The fragrant garlic oil, fried garlic and lards are also some of the important ingredients that made up this bowl of delicious koay teow soup, you may consider to ask for more lards if you are one lard lovers like me. But please be moderate on taking lards for health purpose.

There are so many hidden eateries in Penang that made this state so special. This stall is only one of the many. Despite being hidden in one of the most quiet street in Penang, this stall is still full of customers even late at night. You may consider coming to this place for dinner or supper.
