Best Koay Teow Soup (Koay Teow Th'ng) in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Penang may have been synonymous with char koay teow, but that’s not the only popular koay teow dish here. Koay teow soup, or better known as “koay teow th’ng” among Penangites, is made out of simple ingredients which are koay teow, clear broth, meat (duck, pork, chicken and/or fish balls), lettuce and chopped spring onions. They are absolutely flavourful yet affordable, which is why we recommend you to grab your hot bowl at these these locations!

    Unlike your usual meat-based koay teow soup, Heng Kee’s variation is rather unique thanks to its additional slice of lemon. A bowl of fish balls, fish cake and koay teow noodles, topped with a dollop of sambal belacan, and of course the added lemon flavour and you'll enjoy a refreshingly tangy and spicy meal. Go try out and taste for yourself!

    Koay Teow Th’ng @ Kafe Sri NibongNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The koay teow soup comes with lots of minced pork and a couple of fish balls. Thanks to the amount of pork, it helps elevate the taste of the broth. But the biggest novelty here is the inclusion of yummy half-boiled egg. Just like most soupy noodles, the egg goes hand in hand with the koay teow soup!
    Tips

    If you come by car, look for a parking spot at the back of the shop.

    Things to expect

    Loads of ingredients.
