Koay Teow Th'ng @ Seang Teik Road, Georgetown, Penang.

Tucked within a very old prewar heritage house along Seang Teik Road, the humble and unpretentious Koay Teow Th'ng stall has been selling for more years and since, garnered an appreciate following. The absence of sign board makes it hard for others to find the place, those who are able to make their ways here are in the know. In spite that the place serves Koay Teow Th'ng only but the prices are certainly very wallet-friendly. However, the operating hours may be a little odd, it should be noted that they are opened from 1:30pm to 6:30 pm everyday except on Sundays. A worth-trying place if you are in the vicinity. 


Koay Teow Th'ng (Dry/ small- Rm 3.30/ medium- Rm 3.80/ large- Rm 5), drenched and served with a simple Dark Soy Sauce and some shredded Duck Meat, a small bowl of Fish Ball soup will be served together as well. You will be amazed by the velvety smooth texture of the Koay Teow/ Flat Rice Noodles that slide down the throat the moment you swallowed them. Perfect to go with Bird's Eye Chilies for the extra chili kick; although not mind-blowing, but this is my type of comfort food that I can eat on a regular basis. 


For those who prefer to sip over their flavorful broth, go for their Soup version of Koay Teow Th'ng (small- Rm 3.30/ medium- Rm 3.80/ large- Rm 5). Praise the lard? You may, of course, request for additional Pork Lards should you are a fan of it. The meaty broth was savory, but can be rather inconsistent at times. I once had the broth which I thought it was over-seasoned, so luck really matters here; if you know what it means.
