Kuih Teow Soup is one of my favorite Penang style hawker dishes, and unfortunately also something that is a bit tougher to find in Klang Valley due to the overlap that pork noodle & classic Teow Chew fishball noodle provides. So whenever I find a good one, I want to document them.

I previously wrote about the version at Do Re Mi kopitiam at Ara Damansara, well, this is an updated post as the stall is now moved to a new location just a few shops away at the corner, with this kuih teow soup guy running the whole show.

Note though that this is a kopitiam with more than just the kuih teow soup stall.

I spoke to the owner briefly about the history of his stall.

The guy decided to run this stall after retiring, picking up the family recipe originated from his grandfather & father’s stalls back in Penang, with the original stall started business way back in 1907, over a centuryΒ  ago.

According to him, the soup takes 6 hours to prepare, starting from late at night until the wee hours to achieve that subtle yet sweet & savory taste that’s unmistakably a “proper” kuih teow soup signature.

As for ingredients, there’s chicken, duck, pork slices, as well as fish cake & home made fish ball. Add in kuih teow, bean sprouts, spring onion, garlic oil, some vege and a side of cili padi, you have a complete bowl of goodness perfect for a great start to the morning.

  1. I love Penang kuih teow soup! Love the clear soup and love the fine, smooth and translucent kuih teow you people have over there.

  3. Actually these types of soup noodle are all the same to me, only the toppings are different, haha!

  4. I love a good kuey teow (or fishball noodle) soup too (this one the soup base looks really ‘ching’)….better still if topped with some crispy pork lard…yesss! πŸ˜‰

  5. Ara Dsara is nearby my place so I can actually check this out anytime. Soup noodles is not my cup of tea but my boys love them so yeah, I’ll definitely bring them over.

  6. gosh, despite studying three years in USM, i can’t remember if i ever ate this style of kuih teow soup. another reason for me to wish i could travel back in time πŸ˜€
