I’m always a fan of a good bowl of Penang style kuih teow soup, a dish that somehow seems to always play second fiddle to pork noodle in Klang Valley.
While my kolo mee fix at Restoron Tropikiri was on their rest day, I took the opportunity to give this prawn mee and kuih teow soup stall a try.
As it turned out, it was one of my lucky days, the stall offers a version of kuih teow soup that comes with duck meat.
A bit of background for those who aren’t familiar with this dish, Penang style kuih teow soup usually comes with kuih teow in a clear broth with fish ball, duck/chicken/pork meat, sliced fish cakes, chopped spring onion, fried garlic, and sometimes a bit of pork lard and even coagulated blood (like the O&S version)
The version here is as proper as any, the soup was light yet carries a sweetness undoubtedly contributed by duck meat, and the bits of fried lard certainly gave it an extra savory taste. I enjoy the bouncy fish ball that was included as well.
If you want a comfort breakfast that doesn’t attack your sense of taste too early in the morning, this dish is never a bad idea.
