Had this when I visited Penang last month. Delicious and it's cheap! They're very generous with their servings. It's possible to share if you do not have a big appetite (so that you can try other delicacies as well!)

A wide variety of ingredients to add - duck meat, innards, etc. The soup is quite tasty. The only odd/ special thing is that the Koay is more hard than... More

非常好吃的面,东西很多,汤也好喝,而且超便宜。 一大包的鸭翅只要2元。 Excellent noodle if you are into this kind of food. A local favorite.

Koay Chiap is something unique to Malaysia and it's not in every state that you can find it. The soup base is made out of duck meat and some herbs (if i am not mistaken). The noodles are thicker and more doughy but it goes well with the broth. A lot of people like koay chiap because of the way... More
