Fook Cheow Cafe, Hutton Lane, Penang…#1 place to get kway teow th’ng

Kway teow Th’ng is fresh flat rice noodles which are served in a clear soup broth, topped with fish balls, slices of pork, chicken, golden brown garlic bits and chopped scallions. A condiment of sliced fresh red chilies in soy-vinegar usually accompanies the dish.

The stall in Fook Cheow Cafe, Hutton Lane serves mmm mmm good kway teow t’ng. The soup is full of aroma and and the rich flavour was spot on and delicious. The kway teow is super smooth and thin and the homemade fishballs are perfect!

You won’t find any sort of kway teow soup that tastes like this anywhere else in Malaysia or Singapore, or at least to my knowledge. It really is a beautiful marriage of port, chicken, kway teow noodles and soup. Inexpensive and great are two of my favourite combos. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

This is the true truth because I say it as it is…
