Ah Kok Kuey Teow Soup Review

Ah Kok Kuey Teow Soup Review, 4.3 out of 5 based on 1 rating

Ak Kok Kuey Teow Soup was always my breakfast selection choice. It chicken soup was it secret recipe which make them famous. It is located in Kedai Kopi Chop Heap Seng beside Waterfall hotel, Penang. Want to know more about this, so don’t stop reading till here.

Actual View of the famous Kuey Teow Soup

If you know how to go to Penang Botanical garden, for sure that you will go pass Waterfall hotel prior you reach the garden. Kedai Kopi Chop Heap Seng was just walking distance from Waterfall Hotel. Normally, me and my family will drop by there for a kuey Teow Soup and some tosei ( Raju Tosei Review) . A complete set of breakfast for my family with 2 kids would only cost less than RM 15. It is not because of price that attracted me, more importantly; it is the quality and taste of the food that attracted me.

Ah Kok Kuey Teow Soup stall

If you reached Chop Heap Seng, you will found the Raju Tosei first, which located on the right side of the shop. You may not spot Ah Kok’s stall because it was block by the Dim Sum cart which is on the left side. Upon you walk into it, you will found it on the left side of the shop. Inside Chop Heap Seng, there are only 4 hawker stalls, i.e. Raju Tosei, Ah Kok Kuey Teow Soup, Wan Tan noodle stall and a Mee Goreng stall for breakfast. For lunch, they have the Economy rice stall. Owner of the restaurant sell drink which is normal for these kind of coffee restaurant in Malaysia. The reason behind is very simple, drink has the highest profit margin when compare to the rest of the stall.

Here is how the stall look like. They have been here for more than 15 years. Ah Kok’s wife cooks and prepares the food while Ah kok serve it to the customer. Before you ordered the food, you may observe that the stall is kind of clean and tidy.

Let dig down further to the main ingredient that they used. If you have tried it previously, you will find out that their soup is sweet but does not have any taste of artificial seasoning like Ajinomoto!! Here is why, below is the photo which I taken on site, where you will found 2 chicken inside the soup paste. Yes, 2 chickens plus some other stuff.

How does it taste?

There are 3 varieties in size that you can order I.e. small, medium or big size. It cost from RM 3, RM3.50 and RM 4 respectively. For me I normal order the small version or the “Empty no meat version” which only cost RM 1.50.

For normal version, it comes with 3 fish ball and some topping of some chicken slices. To start enjoy it, get a spoon and place some kuey Teow with some soup on it, and here you go. Upon you started it, you will not stop until you finish it. Since the soup is so sweet and clear, this really bring up the overall taste. The Kuey teow is not sticky and it really feels like eating smooth flat style jelly. The feeling is really good. If you don’t like meat and prefer less meat, you can just order the no meat version which is only cost RM 1.50. You can still enjoy the same taste even without the fish ball or chicken slices. They are not much different between the normal version versus the meatless version as the main ingredient of the soup and the noodle is unchanged. I would say the fish ball and the chicken slide is more toward the topping that satisfy the general customer needs. For me, the no meat version has already satisfied my needs.
