Seriously, who doesn't love a bowl of hot broth to warm your tummy in the morning. Especially those that are really sweet and flavourful like this stall here at Cecil Street Market. The famous duck meat koay teow th'ng here is always crowded with picky palates from morning till evening.

The duck meat koay teow th’ng here is served with coagulated duck blood, meatballs, pork and duck innards as per your likings.

The silky smooth, translucent koay teow (flat rice noodle) coated with their extremely sweet broths are to die for here.

With the additions soft coagulated duck blood and chopped fried garlic, we don’t know what better words to describe the pleasurable experience of this KTT here.

The queue is going to be long but bearable here.

Only thing though, is to grab a parking lot around this area as the Cecil Street Market is hidden with many good foods around.

Koay Teow Th’ng or koay teow soup is a popular soup based dish in Penang.

Like the name implies, this soup dish usually consist of koay teow (flat rice noodles); though many places offer a variety of noodles to the mix.

There are also many variations of soup base being offered throughout the Penang island.

For example, some hawker stalls in Penang serve their Koay Teow Thng as cook-on-the-spot basis. Which the broth are usually cooked with minced pork in a pot of pork stocks. This is quite closely similar to the Zhu Yuk Fan (猪肉粉) you can find in KL.

While there are also many places that offers the variations of soup base prepared with duck, chicken or plain pork broth.

Most of the Koay Teow Thng stalls in Penang will also have the option for addons like extra plate of sliced duck meats, beansprouts, and coagulated duck blood (for the duck based broth), sliced chicken meats and vegetables (for the chicken based broth) and so on.

This used to be a soup dish that are consumed during breakfast, or for those who fell sick during the old days.

But as with most other foods you find in Penang, Koay Teow Th’ng can be taken be it day, night or even for supper.

Apart from that, most younger generations also tend to use KTT as a short name for Koay Teow Th’ng.

Heads up! When it comes to food and experience, opinions varies from person to person. So please take ours with a pinch of salt.
