I first came to Restaurant Good Food in search for curry mee, and so when I went back there again to find out that the curry mee has moved (back story in Penang-One food review post), I settled for another favorite of mine instead – the Penang kuih teow soup, or kuih teow th’ng (粿條汤).

Kueh teow soup is a pretty common hawker dish in Penang that is akin to pork noodle in Klang Valley, their soup base is similar, but instead of everything pork, kuih teow soup usually comes with fish balls, shredded chicken (or sometimes duck, or pork), fish cake, and when you are lucky – coagulated blood (of pork or chicken/duck).

The stall at Restaurant Good Food is operated by an old couple who spoke Penang Hokkien (always a good sign), and the kuih teow soup indeed tasted original and comes with all my favorite ingredients, most importantly lard and coagulated blood. It was subtle yet delicious, with the only downside being their somewhat average tasting fish ball.

For kuih teow soup outside the state of Penang, this one is definitely worth eating.

  1. and it’s good to know that Good Food’s name isn’t false advertising, rite 😀

  2. Coagulated blood (pork or chicken/duck) are hard to find! I’m a vampire! 👿 😆

  3. The curry mee stall at Good Food has shifted to Millennium restaurant behind the Caltex station in Paramount. (the one next to O&S) Now they also sell koay teow thng apart from curry mee.
