Kang Beef Koay Teow Soup @ Jalan Kulim, Bukit Mertajam
Kang Beef Koay Teow Soup @ Jalan Kulim, Bukit Mertajam was recommended by a fellow reader. I have always knew about the stall and its popularity among BM’s [tag]Beef Soup Koay Teow[/tag] lovers, just that I didn’t have the initiative to try it. But, I finally tried it on my last trip back to hometown.
I ordered the dry version which cost RM6 for the smallest order. Price wise it was kinda expensive if compared to the ones I could have had in KL. Anyway, the preparation was really simple – by adding dark soy sauce and chopped garlic with oil on it. Sad to say the noodles tasted pretty bland – I could only taste dark soya sauce and nothing else.
For dry beef koay teow, the beef meats are served separately in a bowl of beef soup. It tasted quite good with plenty of ingredients. I think I could have enjoyed the soup even more if there weren’t so much chopped coriander leaves in it. Although I don’t particularly dislike coriander, the amount was just too much and overpowering for my liking.
If you can read Chinese, you will see that they serve bull penis as well, just add RM8. Well, I am not that daring yet lol.
There aren’t many Beef Soup Koay Teow stalls in Bukit Mertajam. So, unless you are willing to travel to Butterworth or Penang island for the really good ones, Kang’s is still quite OK to satisfy some cravings for beef koay teow soup.

This is not the best Wantan Mee in Penang but it is good. Nameless and often referred as the ‘Wantan Mee in front of furniture shop at Chulia Street‘, the noodles here tastes slightly different from those in Klang Valley. The noodles are more more springy, tossed with light soy sauce hence the fairer appearance

A supposedly dim sum breakfast at Tuck Cheong restaurant did not happen because by the time we reached there, everything was sold out save for some buns. Maybe I was too late by Pudu people’s standards but it was only 9am! Desperate for an alternative, we recalled a famous Hakka Mee nearby that some say

Thanks to a friend’s recommendation I have discovered a good Prawn Noodle stall at Jalan Ipoh called Soon Lee Prawn Mee. For a small hawker stall like this, it is surprising to know that it has been visited by various celebrities from HK, and yet it managed to escape the radar of the more ‘heavyweight

Old Green House restaurant (老青屋) is a popular place among Penangites to have Hokkien Mee (or Prawn Noodle in other Malaysian states) either as dinner or supper. Although the noodle is also available in the morning at another ‘day shift’ stall, most of the working people only have the opportunity to savor it after working

I bet you already know that it’s the Hungry Ghost Festival currently. During the Ghost Month the realms of Heaven and Hell are open, which releases ghosts, spirits including those of the deceased ancestors to roam the living world. So, the Chinese are often advised to stay at home and prevent from going out late
