Just came to learn that the Pitt Street Koay Teow Th’ng is moving their location this Chinese New Year. As most of us know, this Koay Teow Th’ng is very popular among most Penangites. This particular stall located in the corner of Pitt (Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling) and Armenian Street is run by the mother and son team. Their version of Koay Teow Th’ng comes with homemade fish ball (made from eel), minced pork, duck meat and served garnished with fried garlic oil and pork lard. Its specially made soy sauce with chili padi gives an extra flavor when eaten with this noodle.
A few weeks ago, I was informed that they will be shifting out to a new location soon; however the location was not known at that time. It was only yesterday night that I came to know of the exact place after receiving a call from Sherry. They have moved just a few doors down, you won’t miss it with the banners and signboard clearly noticeable from afar. Renovations are still going on, and the official launching day for the new shop is on the 3rd day of Chinese New Year (28th of January 2009) with a Lion Dance display.
Owners of both the Pitt Street & Burma Road stalls
Observed that the new coffee shop is very clean and new. With the new coat of paint, it makes the place very pleasant to enjoy your steaming hot bowl of Koay Teow Th’ng. Prices in the new shop remains the same. Basic bowls cost RM2.50 while for additional eel balls, it will be RM3.50. Any more ingredients on top of that will be charged accordingly. Take note that it will be close on Sunday and Monday. Click here for the Map Location.
Take note that their other branch in Burma Road (Hai Onn Coffeeshop) is running as usual.

Updated on 1/1/2010 : This Koay Teow Th’ng stall has since closed down and shifted out of this area totally and settled into a new coffee shop on 93 Carnavon Street. The shop is diagonally opposite the Star Cafe which is famous for its roast meat (roast duck and roast meat).
