Inderawasih Koay Teow Soup 凤凰现煮粿条汤 @ The Promenade, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

Taking over the lot previously owned by Din Ding Tea is Inderawasih Koay Teow Soup 凤凰现煮粿条汤, a popular brand from Taman Inderawasih, Prai. As the name suggests, the place specializes in offering "cook on the spot" or commonly known as 现煮粿条汤. For the uninitiated, such term refers to the way of cooking and serving. The usual type of Koay Teow Soup would be to blanch the noodles and serve the pre-cooked soup as it is but the "cook on the spot" version would be to cook every single serving individually... typically with fresh, minced Pork and innards (popular options also include Fish Balls, Egg etc). Inderawasih's rendition seems to be murkier, with heavy pork notes. 

Koay Teow Th'ng (Rm 7.50/ small)

Koay Teow Dry (Rm 7.50/ small)

Prawn Dumplings (Rm 4.50/ small)

Crab Meat Seaweed Roll (Rm 4.30/ small)

Lor Bak (Rm 2.50 per piece)

Both dry and soup versions were almost identical, save for the former one was dressed with dark soy sauce. Inderawasih's pork broth carried bold meaty flavor, in which some may find it overly heavy. Each bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng will be served with Fish Balls, Egg, minced Pork and a couple of Shrimps. We disliked the fact that the Egg was overly boiled, we would prefer the whole, runny Egg. Overall, we thought the porky notes were too bold to our liking. As for the other sides, they were disappointingly average.
