Koay Teow Th’ng, also commonly known as KTT is a popular hawker food for Penangites besides the overwhelmingly famous Char Koay Teow, Assam Laksa and Hokkien Mee. Lately I have been patronizing the Duck Meat Koay Teow Th’ng at Lum Lai located in Cecil Street Market Hawker Center, located just beside the bustling Cecil Street Market. This street is also known as Chit Tiau Lor to Penangites which represent the 7th Road in that precinct.

Duck meat Koay Teow Th’ng!

The specialty of this hawker stall is the duck meat! Even the clear soup is extremely wholesome, flavorful sweetness boiled with duck and pork. It really gives the soup a real OOMPH and I enjoyed lapping up the soup alongside the smooth koay teow!

Additional order of duck drumstick… all extras charged accordingly!

A standard bowl of KTT here comes with slices of shredded pork meat, duck meat, fish cakes, fish balls and duck’s blood (in coagulated form). It is garnished with spring onions and served with condiment of freshly sliced chili in soy sauce. I truly enjoyed this comforting Penang hawker food, especially having it together with a side order of duck drumstick.

Do drop by the Cecil Street Market Hawker Center and enjoy this Koay Teow Th’ng! There are also other hawker food to sample in this hawker center, including pasembur, lorbak and sweet dessert (tong-sui)! Do take note that it can be very hot in the afternoon. Click here for the Map Location.

CK…that looks delicious…I used to have the classic koay teow th’ng , when I stayed with my grandma in Penang during the school holidays ( Form 2 ) and look what they have now, duck drumstick in it. What a creative way to do business now :))

SimpleGirl – Will get it done in time to come :)

Elin – We are real lucky as we get to add-on many ingredients for various type of hawker food nowadays.

foodbin – I agree with you, the soup has to be flavorful and not oily.

xin – All the balls are made of fish.

Jason Wong – So far so good…the soup is tasty and flavorful to my liking.

I’m such an amateur gourmand — if I try Koay Teow Th’ng, it will probably be without the duck’s blood! :P
