Koay Teow Teng

A tasty breakfast at Pulau Tikus Market

Seems like it’s been quite sometime I didn’t post about koay teow teng ya :) . If you are a frequent visitor of my blog, you’ll notice that there’s one period that I posted a lot on koay teow teng, that other bloggers gave me a nick name as koay teow teng queen. :P

Browsing thru my koay teow teng post, I realized how I miss the koay teow teng at Pulau Tikus Market. Normally we didn’t really want to go to Pulau Tikus Market area due to the heavy traffic at the market area and it’s very hard to get a parking.

But when we are craving for that particular food so much, the traffic and parking doesn’t really matter, right?

Koay Teow Teng alone is just too plain to serve as our breakfast. :P

So we ordered char koay kak. This char koay kak is good! Full of wok hei and very flavourful.

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.


Fried Emperor Noodle ; Penang Hawker Food

I was craving for the frog porridge at Sin Geylang. But unfortunately when we arrived, the shop was closed. Oops… it’s Wednesday. The shop is closed that day. Too bad. Since we were already very hungry, we just stopped by somewhere near to grab something to fill our stomach.

Sin Kim San Coffee shop where the delicious Top Taste hokkien mee is being served in the morning,  is serving a wide variety of hawker food at night. We are spoilt by too many choices of hawker food available. Ended up, no idea what to order.

My bf ordered a bowl of koay teow teng. Soup base is clear with average sweetness. The fish ball has springy texture, the way I like my fishball to be.


Koay Teow Teng & Wan Tan Mee @ Sri Nibong Cafe ; Penang Hawker Food

This is a common place for Bayan Lepas workers. Sri Nibong Cafe is a corner lot coffee shop which is located at Sri Nibong opposite Ayer Cafe. When I first started to work at Phase 1 FIZ, my colleagues introduced this place to me. They told me the instant cook koay teow teng and the wan tan mee here taste good. This coffee shop is always full of people especially during breakfast and lunch hour. The environment is pretty warm and heaty which is the one thing that I don’t like about this place. 

Minced meat, fish ball, slices of fish cake and a runny egg are the ingredients used to cook the koay teow teng. I personally feel that the quality has deteriorated over the years I’ve patronized this stall. Sometimes the koay teow used are in small pieces instead of flat long strand. Basically we have to use spoon to scoop the koay teow. Nothing much to shout about the soup base. My favourite would still be the one at Seng Thor Coffee Shop which of the soup base is definitely worth mentioning. 

The runny egg is the only thing I like in this bowl of koay teow teng. Sound so pathetic huh. Well, this is just my personal taste ya. 


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!


Koay Teow Teng @ Pulau Tikus Market ; Penang Hawker Food

On one Sunday morning, CL overheard me on the phone with a friend of mine. She called to ask where can she gets a bowl of nice koay teow teng (ktt). She’s thinking to go over to try out the Pitt Street ktt but I pointed out that I prefer the one at Jalan Samak more.

When I hung up with her, CL asked me whether have I tried the ktt at Pulau Tikus Market. I was like… huh? I never heard anyone talked about a bowl of good ktt at Pulau Tikus Market. CL said I really should try it out as he himself likes it a lot. CL offered to bring us there for the ktt and we accepted the offer happily. I’m sure happy as can try out new food. :)

My bowl of ktt with added fish balls (7 of them). A normal bowl will have 2 pcs of fish balls. The ingredients are pretty normal where they are a few slices of meat and fish cake. 


Curry Mee & Koay Teow Teng @ Jln Samak ; Penang Hawker Food

Weekend is always a food hunt day. Our food hunt continue after Ah Leng Char Koay Teow. This stall just located very near to the ckt stall. It’s located opposite the Esso petrol station, just beside a Chinese temple.

This stall has been in operation since 1980. Normal business hour is from 7.30am – 10.30am. But once in a while you can be lucky just like us, who get to eat at 12pm. :)

The curry mee soup base look so white when the chili is not being mixed into it. But it’s very fragrant with just the adequate amount of coconut juice.


Tom Yam Noodle @ Lip Sin | Penang Hawker Food

Lip Sin is very famous with the Super Tanker Foodcourt. But I do not like to eat at Super Tanker Foodcourt, cos I just don’t like the food there. Sometimes I was forced to lunch there as my colleagues wanted to go.

My bf created a nick for Super Tanker just for me. Super Tanker = Super Boring. No offence as it’s just me who don’t like the food there.

There one stall just by the roadside a little further away from Super Tanker (to Sunshine Lip Sin direction) selling thumbs up tomyam noodle.

See my bowl of red hot tomyam… The tomyam tasted spicy and sour. Good to have it on rainy days as it’ll warm you up. I like the minced meat which served in the tomyam. It’s marinated with the right flavour.

To my preference, Armenian Street Koay Teow Teng is more to my tastebud as the soup base is clear and sweet.

Armenian Street Koay Teow Teng | Penang Hawker Food

I’ve heard bout this Armenian Street Koay Teow Teng (ktt) before I started blogging. It’s like half a year ago… But didn’t get to try it until now.

Armenian Street Koay Teow Teng Shop

The ktt come with 4 pcs of fish ball, thinly slice duck meat and pork. The fish ball taste good. It’s hand made by the stall owner. The soup base is cooked with chickens, therefore it tasted sweet.

We’ve ordered another bowl of fishball as I just love fishballs. There are total of 9 pcs of fishballs.
