keow teow th'ng

The soup is not spicy at all, but as usual as other hawkers food, it come with sliced chili soy sauce dip. The soup stock is not thick and can be boiled from pork bones and chicken. The seasoning from the soup is so secret that I don't get even a word out from the hawker's mouth, "special pepper powder then". I love the minced pork meat and the sliced fish cakes, they goes so well with the chili soy sauce topping. Now already it gets my mouth watering by talking.

The normal penang version is fish meatball, sliced thin minced pork meat and spring onion. It goes so good with the peppers, the more the better, for me. You can also ask for different type of noodles, like keowtew(the flat noodle, the one I have), egg noodle(the yellow one) and Rice vermicelli(thin transparent one).
