Contrary to the many good feedbacks about Restaurant Lin’s 7th Village Koay Teow Soup, I found it to be average tasting at best. I was back to Penang not long ago and decided to explore more Butterworth food. After researching for a while, I found this Koay Teow Soup to be one of the highly recommended food around. Seems to be true if judging on the morning crowd alone.
The main reason I thought it was average was because I couldn’t find anything outstanding about the noodle soup at all. The soup was bland with skimpy ingredients. And, perhaps more importantly, the minced meat that was so crucial in making or breaking Koay Teow Soup was quite tasteless and tough.
Besides Koay Teow Soup they also serve Bak Cham Gai (steamed chicken) @ RM2.50 a portion. The portion is darn small for the price (only a chicken wing) but luckily it was not bad.
Don’t hold too high hopes on this Koay Teow Th’ng and you might be pleased with it. I just feel there are so many other better ones out there. Next time I want to try Sai Toh Lim instead, which is just a row next to 7th Village at Raja Uda. No address provided for 7th Village because I don’t have it lol.
