Instant Cook Koay Teow Teng @ Kimberley Street ; Penang Hawker Food

Recently I am so into koay teow teng. My favourite would be the one at Pulau Tikus Market and at Jalan Samak. Both soup base tasted good.

This koay teow teng is slighty different from both mentioned above as this is instant cook type. It’s located at Seng Thor Coffee Shop at Kimberley Street.

My bowl of instant cook koay teow teng which you can see it’s floaded with ingredients. There are some minced meat, pork liver, fishball and sliced pork in it. With only RM 3 a bowl, it’s really a steal!

Other than ingredients, the soup base is very important in a bowl of koay teow teng. This soup base tasted sweet and it’s not those from seasoning. The pork liver was cook with the perfect timing as the texture is soft and succulent. Those over cooked one tasted hard. There a few pieces of pork liver in it. As I’m not so fond of it, I was not able to finish it. :P

When we entered this coffee shop, we saw quite a number of tables with lor mee on it. First thing that came into our mind was, so many people order, sure good one. So, without hesistation we placed our order. Kiasu? Haha… For me, the loh mee tasted pretty normal. The broth was pretty thick.

I do not know how to judge a bowl of good lor mee as there’s no lor mee in my hometown. I only got expose to it when I came to Penang. Any advise from local how to judge a bowl of good lor mee?

This is the instant cook koay teow teng stall.

    personally, I feel a nice bowl of lor mee very much depends on the “gravy”, i don’t like those with a lot of flour. I love the gravy which is fragrant with spices n herbs taste….i really miss the lor mee in Penang. Here in Ipoh, cannot find one lei…..


  7. I so many people blog about this shop. But have not try it. ^o^

    Wahlau, you wanna be the KTT hunting queen in Penang hor? :) For lor mee, I believe the garlic paste is very important.

    This stall if you go with me, you get a bigger bowl and more ingredients. (You can clarify with Huat Koay from PTP). This is the best instant cook koay teow soup in Penang for me. Been had it for more than 10 years.

    Lingzie : Instant cook is diff where they use minced pork and cook bowl by bowl vs normal koay teow soup which just put ingredients and noodles together then pour in soup.
