Duck Meat Koay Teow Th’ng Off Kimberley Street

Written by Lingzie

Topics: Penang Hawker Food

Even though Penang is a food haven, sometimes we do get stuck coming up with places to eat. Perhaps its because we’re creatures of habit and tend to go back to places we’re comfortable with. So I was quite surprised when dad suggested we go to Kimberley Street for Koay Teow Th’ng breakfast one day. I hadn’t notice that there was a place to have Koay Teow Th’ng along that street. But sure enough, on the corner of Kimberley Street and Lorong Ngah Aboo is this…

Koay Teow Th'ng Stall

Koay Teow Th'ng

This is Penang street food alright, no proper shop or anything… just a make shift stall and some tables and chairs along the street and narrow walkways!

The only thing to eat here is Duck Meat Koay Teow Th’ng and beside the stall is a makeshift stall selling drinks. Shortly after ordering, came our meals…

The soup version of the Koay Teow Th’ng was passable with quite a generous amount of duck meat.

I like mine dried and with koay teow and mee 🙂 This was pretty good. Not the best I’ve had, but tasty.

Strangely enough, this stall also offers vegetables! So in an attempt to ‘healthy up’ the meal, we ordered a plate.

Vegetables ala "yao choi"

Vegetables cooked in hot water and seasoned with light soya sauce, topped with fried shallots

The stall is located along Kimberley Street just before the huge pink Bee Cheng Hiang shop.

    I just had my breakfast there some weeks back but did not manage to post on it yet. I feel that the price is a bit too stiff and the taste was just average. I still prefer the one at Lebuh Melayu (formerly at Carnarvon Street). 🙂

    Lingzie : PTP went there and a bit disappointed. When the time I brought him there, the koey teow and the meats qty were totally different. I am a regular there since my grandfather time. hahaha

    Dried version looks okay but I prefer the th’ng.

    BTW, I like your site’s Winter color scheme, but the falling snowflakes make my Firefox browser eat up CPU cycles. Might I suggest turning off the snowflakes?
