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.

There are generous amount of shredded chicken slices, meatballs and fish balls topped on the koay teow soup before serving. (you can also order an extra bowl of chicken meats with vegetables)

This place starts selling as early as 7:30am and finishes early thanks to the good business.

So, be sure to come as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

We usually slurp the soup dry without wasting a drop every time we come to this Uncle Koay Teow Thng.

Note: The stall sometimes closes on random week days while mostly open on Sundays. We'll update the business hour again once we get more solid info from uncle.
