|Kimberley Street was named after John Wodehouse, the Earl of Kimberley, who was the British colonial secretary in the 1870s. At night, Kimberley Street is one of the popular destinations for street food.|
|Somehow, we knew about this shop through a Taiwan food reality show. Since the host strongly recommended this shop, we just HAD to give it a try. We are always up for something new!|
Not sure if you all know what kuey chap is. It's basically something like kuey tiao but in a thicker and shorter form like pan mee, served with soup. In Sarawak, we do have kuey chap but it's served with pork. Yet in Penang, the kuey chap is served with duck so it's a braised duck noodle. I think you can only find duck kuey chap in Penang, even in Penang itself there's only a few places that sell this unique dish.
|This is the Duck Kuey Chap stall; as you can see there's a lot of ingredients you can choose to have with your kuey chap.|
|They have the internal organs, duck tongue (OMG, IKR), and blood.|
|Since I don't eat internal organs, I have my kuey chap with only sliced duck meat and every bowl of kuey chap comes with an egg too :D Must eat their chili paste, syiok!|
|You can opt for porridge as well if you don't fancy kuey chap (:|
|If I'm not mistaken, the third generation is running the business now.|
