Kueh Teow Soup (粿條汤) has always been one of my favorite Penang hawker offerings, other than the usual suspects such as Char Kueh Teow and Curry Mee. So I went over to the famous Kueh Teow Soup stall at Lebuh Armenian in Geogetown to satisfy my craving last weekend.

Update: This place has since moved to Lebuh Carnarvon, updated entry here.

Penang Kuih Teow Soup at Lebuh Armenian
simple, light, yet superbly delicious

The restaurant is of an old school kopitiam with only slightly over half a dozen serving tables. The atmosphere at the place hasn’t change at all since at least a couple decades ago, giving a sense of nostalgia.

I ordered the Kueh Teow Soup with pork intestine as extra ingredient. By default, it comes with sliced pork, three very soft and tasty fish ball, fried pork fat and some fresh vege as garnish. The soup is light while flavourful, just how I like my kueh teow soup to taste like. The other ingredients, including the kueh teow, were very tender with the taste factor right on the dot as well. The kueh teow soup in PJ old town is nice, but this is of another level altogether.

This dish was only RM 2.50, and that’s with the extra intenstine added, it is RM 2.00 without. Pork tripe is available as the other extra ingredient. You can also order fish ball soup here. The stall operates from about noon to late afternoon.

    […] The dish has a slightly different type of “noodle” that has the characteristics of both pan mee and kueh teow, a sort of thicker kueh teow with different texture (refer to the photo below). Duck meat, innards, coagulated blood, and hard-boiled duck egg makes up the rest of the ingredients. All these are served in a bowl of duck flavored soup that is darkish in color. Thai chili and soya sauce accompanied the dish. […]

  10. […] a few hawker food that I usually do not miss. The char kueh teow, curry mee, mee goreng, and also kueh teow soup such as the one at Lebuh Armenian. The other dish would be this famous dried kuey teow at the Mt. […]
