Last Sunday after church we could not decide where to go for breakfast, therefore we went driving around our Heritage zone in Georgetown. It was hard to decide what to eat because there were to many choice and also because we had problem finding a good place to park. Then we came by this corners shop selling Duck Meat Koay Teow Th'ng. We actually drove by this place some weeks ago hoping to try it after Gill's dad said that it was not bad, but no luck. It was always closed for us. This time die-die must try said Gill.

This shop is located at the corner of Lebuh Keng Kwee and Jalan Kangsar. The name of the shop is Kedai Kopi Tong Hoe. The only hawker offering they sell is the Duck Meat Koay Teow Th'ng and drinks. But fear not, you are allowed to order other hawker item from road side stalls located at the vacininity. This shop is open for business from 7:30am to 12:30pm daily except for either Wednesday or Thursday. They also close on the 1st and 15th day of the month on the lunar calender.


For the first meal of the day, we ordered 2 small bowls of KTT, 1 plate of duck meat, 1 plate pig intestines and 1 plate of blench green vege. Guess how much is cost us?

The first thing that we tasted was the soup, it was very lite with a hint of the duck's scent. Remember not to put any soya sauce or chili, or else you would have lost that unique taste. The Koay Teow (flat rice noodle) is smooth and springy, but not as springy like the ones in Ipoh. They quite a compliment to the light soup base. One of condiment item in the KTT, was the meat balls (not the testicles). It taste average and not firm enough. Why I mentioned the pork balls is because it will affect the taste of the soup due to the stronger taste it has.

Then there are the 3 side dishes that we ordered, the duck meat, pig intestines and blench green vegetables. The duck and intestines were served on a bed of plum and crunchy beans sprouts, dressed in light soya and fragrant lard and garlic oil and sprinkle with crispy garlic and pork lard bids. The duck meat was firm and cooked just nice, but it lost its juices because it was cutted too thin. The pig intestine was light, clean, and slightly springy. The blench vege was crunchy and sweet. It was dressed in the same dressing as the the duck meat and pork intestine.



If you are not fond of the taste burnt garlic, you could ask them leave out the garlic. May be before you decide, just snoop around to see how the garlic was that day.

On average, I would give this place:
  • 2.8/5 for value (the meal we had cost the two of us RM 12.50)
  • 3.5/5 for taste & texture
  • 2.9/5 for service ( damn slow, kira koay teow like kira bulu. We waited at least 10-15 minutes to be served 3 tables but less then 12 pax...gee. There were 3 persons working, one prepare the koay teow, one choped the duck and one do the serving )
  • 3/5 for cleanliness
  • 3/5 for atmosphere
