One of my favorite Penang hawker foods is Kuih Teow Soup, or commonly spelled as Kuih Teow Th’ng in Hokkien. It is one of the few comfort foods you can have at any time of the day, any stomach “health” level since it’s soupy and isn’t spicy.

I was first introduced to this Anson Road market kuih teow th’ng by my mom when she ‘tapao’ a packet for us for breakfast. It immediately became one of my favorites, so I made it a mission to have it at the market itself the following trip back.

On the Sunday morning that I went for this, the stall was predictably very busy. I had to wait for 20+ minutes before being served.

The kuih teow soup here is surprisingly simple, with strips of chicken meat & some skin, fish ball, choi sum (vegetable), silky soft kuih teow, fried garlic oil, and most importantly – coagulated chicken blood. While some places utilizes duck meat for a stronger taste, this stall somehow managed to come up with the chicken based soup that’s very sweet and savory in taste, I love it.

I'm a happy camper, definitely worth waking up for

If you don’t mind a bit of wait, this place is definitely worth checking out. Get there before 9+ in the morning though cos they usually sold out early.
