Best Boat Noodles in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Also known as Kuai Tiao Ruea – Boat Rice Noodles, this Thai dish has been whetting appetites in the canals of Bangkok since 1942 and the remarkable flavours have sailed beyond the kingdom of Siam. To prevent spillage in wobbly waters, boat chefs kept the portions small. Staying true to its origins, boat noodles still come in small portions. However, to satisfy our big appetite, we just stack 'em up! These sizzling noodles are scarce in Penang, yet we have discovered the best that will bring you to Thailand in a bowl.

    Thai Hao Chi Boat Noodles is renowned as the first Thai boat noodles restaurant in Penang and it’s always buzzing with patrons. Located a stone’s throw away from the Queensbay roundabout, it’s a basic restaurant with neat interior and ample parking space. Customers can choose from either dry or soup, chicken or pork and bee hoon or feathery Thai koey teow. Add their chili flakes to amp up your spicy scale.


    Their pandan chicken is worth trying.

    Things to expect
