Uncle Koay Teow Th'ng at Lebuh Cintra

If we must really put a ranking for the best koay teow thng in Penang, this stall would be the number one on our list.

Honestly, who doesn't love a warm, simple bowl of soup-based koay teow soup; especially in the morning or on a cold rainy day?

This stall located at the side of Lebuh Cintra, is probably one of the best kept secret among the locals. It will most likely keep you coming back every week.

People who knows this place call him the Uncle Koay Teow Thng.

Despite the very tasty broth, you almost hear or see no mention of it.

Only about 4 tables - @len_j_p

With the really limited seats, we can understand why almost nobody wants it to be known by too many.

We struggled to make a post about it too at first, but we really think you will love it as much as we do.

Visitors to this place are well aware that they will usually have to share a table with others after placing orders.

Then you wait patiently. (note: waiting time is reasonably quick)

The broth here is prepared with a lot of chickens and it tasted really sweet and addictive.

Like many KTT stalls, you get the options to have a mix of noodles or bee hoon per your liking.
