Penang street food is world renowned, regularly finding its way on to top ten lists in Asia and around the world. Considered one of the top ten, and “must try” is a noddle dish, char kway teow. On this 205th week of Travel Photo Thursday (December 11th, 2014) join me as I sample what is billed as one of the top char kway teow stalls in the city.

Every Penang street food vendor wants to see their stall reviewed in the local paper.
This is what Mr. Ing had to say about his favorite char kway food stall, Sin Hwa Coffee Shop on Burma Road…
One of the reasons I wanted to eat at this particular stall was to try this dish made with duck eggs.
Tiny kitchen…I tried to chat the owner up, but he didn’t seem to be in a very good mood. I got there late, and he probably had had a super busy morning. I think that’s the price you pay for getting reviewed in the newspaper 🙂
Far from glitzy, but they have been wowing the locals with their food for over 40 years!
And what you’ve all been waiting for…Char Kway Teow…and I was not disappointed. The dish was perfectly cooked with the noodles dry, and even a bit crispy. The duck eggs provided a much richer taste than the chicken eggs would have. The plump prawns were cooked to perfection. The chili gave the noodles just added little kick that it needed to tantalize the taste buds. Can you believe the price…$1.15US! If you opt for the chicken eggs, you’ll pay less! 🙂
I haven’t made this at home, but if you are so inclined here’s a recipe that I found on Malyasiafood.net.
