I like the braised pig's parts and duck in soy sauce over flat rice noodles or porridge. The duck meat are tender and tasty.

It was not as tasty as what other people said. Has options to choose you want to put their ingredient together with the kueh or separately. Kweh was so thick even though is soft. And their ingredient has some smell like it was not clean properly and make it more fragrant because of their fried garlic. Their soup like tasteless.

We heard a lot about this as well but it turned out to be a disappointment. The duck kway chap is too salty and the duck meat was average. We still preferred our Singapore style kway chap where the meat and the noodles are separated rather than mixing everything together in a bowl. The only good thing is probably its... More

I'm a fan of kweh chap. With much excitement to try this out but maybe wasn't quite used to the thick curl up kweh which leads to a 3 star rating. Pretty sure it have it's own group of supporters out there. There's a choice of either having ingredients with kweh in a bowl or having the ingredients on another... More

Especially in the cold weather. I love how the bowl of noodles is filled with so much ingredients- intestines, egg, etc.... More

Yummy penang style kwap chiap that make you crave for more. Mixture of duck meat, pork skins, braised eggs and pig bloods cubs. One bowl will settle your dinner.

This is a stall located on Kimberly Street, and after you order you can take a seat in the shop behind it, where you can order drinks. Grab the table fast, especially during busy dinner hours. The Duck Koay Chap is their signature, which comes with duck and intestine and a lot of other meat. But if you want extra... More

We stayed near the market so walking distance. This place get pretty busy all night and I am not surprised why. It is easy to order, take a seat and enjoy it. They use every thing of the duck but you can tell them which bid you don't like. Meat is tender and soup is delicious.

Personally I really love this stall!!! They served old school Koay chiap and their soup is so flavorful .... Come to the serving the portion just nice for me and price also reasonable (if not mistaken RM7 per serving). Inside the bowl is full of their signature ingredient such as duck meat, pig liver, stomach, eggs and etc. However ,... More
