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.

    I prefer the one in penang opposite the balai bomba one. If you noticed, the meat they served in bm are way too thin compare to the penang one. So stingy. more. i also don’t like the thick black sauce with the noodle. And they put too much garlic.

    Hmm…$6 for a bowl kinda expensive for a daily fare of noodle. Yup, meat is expensive due to inflation..haha. Restaurant price it seems but I think the portion must be super big rite? Or only the bowl is big..Anyway, have money will eat.

  12. Yup, price is bit expensive, taste is strong and you will need 10 liters water later.

    Do you happen to notice that there is a Kelang Lama laksa stall at the opposite far end of the beef stall? Do try their laksa together with their cracker. It’s pretty unique way of eating laksa. You can try their ABC as well.


    vk: Hey you know what I did notice that Laksa Stall.. I will try to find time to try their laksa one day :)

    i’ve been having the beef koay teow since i was a little kid.
    try going at around 3 smtg in the afternoon..
    the soup is superb by that time

  17. jy says:

    i feel like i have the obligation to defend this lol. i think this is really nice. and yea the soup version is definitely better. the portion is pretty big considering that it is small.
    it has many “liao” inside too! i always end up having “liao” after finishing all the koay teow.
