Koay Teow Teng @ Evergreen Cafe ; Penang Hawker Food

Suprise to see a ‘yau char kwai’ picture after you read the title of my post? Well… I was shocked too when I was served with a bowl of yau char kwai when I ordered koay teow teng (ktt). The yau char kwai serves the same purpose as in bah kut teh.

We stumbled across this cafe during one of our food hunting trip and those stacks of ‘chinese rooster bowl‘ attracted me into the cafe.

Koay teow teng with pieces of chicken meat, duck meat, some fish balls and meat balls. When we ordered, we mentioned to omit out the innards.

The soup base is packed with pork taste comparing to Jalan Samak ktt which the soup base has more chicken flavour. The yau char kwai dipped into the soup is something new to me, it’s somehow an acquired taste. I still prefer yau char kawi to be dipped into bah kut teh soup.

This is how a normal bowl of koay teow teng would look like with the innards included. There are so much ingredients available, looks so yummy to me although I don’t fancy innards.

I ordered bee tai bak soup without any garlic oil and spring onions added which make it looks like it’s suitable for a sick person. :P

There are some pork slices and chicken slices. The soup base is rather salty compare to the koay teow teng soup base.

The Evergreen Cafe is located directly opposite this Hutton Lane Car Park building.

  10. I think I have been to this place before, but why they did not give me yau char kwai? Or this is something new that they just added?

    Food Paradise & My Taste Heaven,
    We were curious looking at the yau char kwai displayed at a ktt stall. So we asked the owner what’s it for and she served us with that too :P


  14. allie says:

    Haha… KTT queen. What a name! I prefer dessert queen. LOL :D
    There’s one more post of ktt coming up :P


  15. Tching says:

    Been to this place before but did not try it. I doubt whether the yau char guai goes well with the “cheng tong”.


  16. allie says:

    That’s why I mentioned dipping the yau char kwai into the cheng tong is a very acquire taste :P
