Googgle Man Char Kuey Teow is a taste of Penang on top of a mountain!
This is undeniably a great bowl of ramen. You don’t get ginormous queues like Kanbe does if the food isn’t extraordinary.
Kakatoo is a nicer version of the classic kopitam.
Why is it so hard to find a decent plate of char kuey teow in KL?
This curious little kopitam doesn’t look like anything special, but it is the secret favourite for many denizens of Ipoh.
This would be a good place for cautious tourists to try some classic kopitam fare… or completely wimp out and order a tuna sandwich, whatever.
I went to two Tiger Char Koay Teow stalls 100m apart from each other in the same morning and ordered the same dish to find out if their taste was identical.
For the same price as the hawkers (or maybe even cheaper!) you can eat in a much nicer and relaxed setting but still get the same authentic, homemade Penang food
This dish was only elevated to “edible” after adding a worrying amount of soy sauce
