Koay Teow Th'ng, Lorong Phuah Hin Leong

How many of you ever heard of this street name - Lorong Phuah Hin Leong?
But everyone will immediately know if someone tells them, ‘there… the street that opposite Primary Union School, or the road that you could see wedding planner shop in front.’

I in fact have never thought there is a Koay Teow Th’ng stall there. It’s literally a stall with a few tables and chairs. You only order your bowl of Koay Teow Th’ng and that’s it. No drinks are served.

Hubby knows the owner personally, and he brought me here once during our courting time. This is one of the many re-visit of this stall, that caught my interest of blogging it. And I know I’ve blogged about Koay Teow Th’ng many times, and I believe my readers will notice I do like Koay Teow Th’ng a lot! [LOL]
Ok, joke aside. They do serve the dried version which people called it Koay Teow Dried. What makes a dried version tasty, most important is the dark soya sauce and the oil that blend well and add well with correct amount. Apart from that, chillies do contribute a lot too. Don’t you agree? As for the soup, soup base is the most important ingredients. Cuz, that will make the bowl of Koay Teow Th’ng appetizing.
Oh ya, what contribute this bowl of Koay Teow Th’ng are the surrounding. You’ll see these houses along the street… and you could imagine how it was look like in that century.

I wonder if he's the same hawker who started off more than 30 years ago? I lived in Tavoy Close then and would see him preparing his hawker cart early in the morning in his backyard (behind Phuah Hin Leong Road)when on my way to school. He served the best koay teow th'ng in town then. Yum!
