    Fish Ball Koay Teow Soup @ Carnavon Street

    Undeniably, the most renowned spot any Penangites look too when their belly begs for succulent fish balls. What sets it so special is their fish balls are made from eel; you don’t need to get into Japanese restaurants to get them anymore. It’s downright second to none, the texture is much softer compared to regular fish balls, and retains its natural flavours.The noodles are smooth, topped with minced meat, complementing the broth which results from hours of duck and pork bones boiling process. Spellbinding bowl like never before that justifies the never-ending crowd.

It’s bona fide Penang in a nutshell. It’s common to be puzzled to pick a meal, yet if you want piping hot with juicy fish balls, head towards the fish ball noodles stall.

    Cowboy Street Cafe

    If the name of the restaurant sounds catchy, how about Red Wine Chicken Noodle and Curry Chee Cheong Fun? Indeed, you’ve got to visit this spot at once. Another commendable dish is their fish balls soup which is liberally loaded with homemade fish balls, wallop of greens and glass noodles. Patrons have their own way of eating too, the eat the fish balls without any noodles, as it’s juicy and spongy, dabble in with some chopped chilies, it's oh-so-worth it. The soup is good on its own too, which the vegetables add a crunchy element.
