Tiger Koay Teow Th'ng 亞虎粿條湯

You know it’s kind of frustrating when you need to eat something yet you do not know what to have, and if you have the money of course, you will lavishly spend on it, otherwise, you will be thinking what to eat, what to eat.

Anyway, we were running out of idea what to have for breakfast one of the weekends, and also wonder where to go for breakfast, or where to have breakfast which is nearer to the destination where you need to run some errands. And you know why were we so particular on that, reason is very simple,… that’s due to fuel hike which we both don’t want to travel unnecessary.

If this happened to those days, we’ll have breakfast in one end and run errands on the other end of the island. Well, those lavish and luxury days no more exist, anymore.

Well, let’s not bog down by these negativities that will spoil our appetite.

Those living in Georgetown (which recently has inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage list) will know this stall used to be in Kimberly Street. And I heard they also have another stall which operates at night in Farlim one of the resident area too.

Anyway, this stall is located at the end of Carnavon Street, and it’s actually located in one of the shop which is triangle in shape. This shop used to be wholesale cutleries and plates, but now has turned into a coffee shop. To be more specific, this stall is located opposite the police station and diagonal opposite a wet market.

Ok, now back to the main attraction – Koay Teow Th’ng.

Look at the bowl of Koay Teow Th’ng, didn’t it get you drooling over and bite it and get it swallow?? Hehehehe… that’s very bad of me, huh?

Anyway, we waited almost an hour just to have a bowl of this. Cuz, I can tell you their customers base is really huge and I could see many level of people patronize this place for breakfast, even a white collar, blue collar, uncles, aunties and etc.

It’s hard to find any stalls right now that give intestines. And when you’re there, you wouldn’t care about cholesterol. Most important is to fill up the stomach!!

Precious Pea said...

Looks good! I don't mind pig's intestines as long as they are cleaned properly. I had bad experience once.

24HrMom said...

I luv it previously, but not anymore now... just like what Gastronomic Diary says:enough of meat. :-)2

durianberry said...

Oooh I always throw the intestines to my mom's bowl :P I didn't know there's good KTT at that coffeeshop. RM2.50 for that? It is so cheap in these days ;)

Shell (貝殼) said...

sometime i really dun care about cholesterol^^..eat first think later

CK Lam said...

That coffeeshop does sell tasty KTT. Most customers had extra bowls of ingredients.
The wantan mee is good too...

gill gill said...

i will always be the first one who go for Pork Intestine, Mince Meat, Duck Meat KTT, rathen the norm KTT. kinda hard to get pork intestine in the hawker's meal now a days...especially Char Hor Fun. really missed the aroma of the pork liver fry with the Dried Char Hor Fun, full of Wok Hei!

Must try this next weekend! :)

lingzie said...

oh pig intestines are not really my cup of tea... usually will give it to my grandpa :) but the KTT is still rm2.50? no price increase? that's surprising.. these days notice that the food places either increase price or maintain same price but cut to much smaller portion.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

wah to die for oohhhh...yes most important must full

Fortesfidelis said...

As long as the intestines are cleaned properly, I am willing to try. I also like mine with a lot of fried pig's fat. It does no go for my cholesterol level but really, without it, it taste different. I wonder if this koay teow th'ng better than the one at Hutton Lane? Must try and see.

squall said...

Hmmm... since when does a food blogger cares about waistline :P I'm worried a bit now as I have suddenly gained so much after blogging about food. Time to hold a keep fit session for all food bloggers here in Penang. :P
