Slurping down a hot bowl of duck broth with chewy kway chap and generous servings of soy-braised duck & pork innards is an indescribable experience especially on a rainy night. Not for the cholesterol-challenged!

I have been to several places around these region and i have tasted kway chap from various places. The one we normally encounter are full of pork and the broth are much heavier in herbs and spices, while lighter in saltiness. This is the first time i have encounter the duck kway chap, and it is particularly in this Kimberley... More

First, this stall open only about 5-6pm. So don't try to go and have breakfast or lunch. Pesonally, I think this is the best duck kway chap I ever tried. There is rice and porridge options which I never tried but i think the standard is same. They are very generous with the portions, the kway is soft and smooth... More

Pieces of rice noodles served in a rich, flavourful duck broth. Absolutely heavenly. Koay Chiap is a hard to find delicacy in Malaysia, and amongst the few i know this one in Kimberley street is by far the best. Be warned that there are plenty of innards as well.

There was a long queue on our first visit so we gave it a miss. We went earlier the next evening and managed to get our order of koay chiap which was served quite quickly. The flat noodles were topped with duck meat, intestines and some other unrecognisable bits of pig's innards. The soup was tasty and it was a... More

The intestine was done perfect and we are so happy that they serve pig blood since we can no longer get this back home. This is the first place that i will go to when I visit Penang again.

Soup is fantastic, it's not too salty nor blunt. Decent portion of duck and pork were given, price is reasonable, will definitely visit again despite the queue!

Simple and good kuay chup! It was closed when we first came, so we returned on the following day to try. I like the savoury taste and generous portion of ingredients which greatly justifies for the price. Recommended!
