Penang Famous Duck Kuey Chap @ Lebuh Kimberley

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 (: 

The soup is really flavourful while the duck meat is tender and perfectly braised.  A bowl of kuey chap costs RM7 which is quite pricey for street food in Penang but the portion is huge as they are quite generous with their ingredients. Now that I'm blogging about it, I feel like having a bowl too! *swallow saliva*
If I'm not mistaken, the third generation is running the business now. 

If you're sick of having the same ol' Penang Char Kuey Tiao, Assam Laksa, Kuey Tiao Tng, well you should totally put this in your to-eat list as well. Highly recommended. We even have it twice in one month!
P/S: Should try the lobak in front of the restaurant too (corner left in the photo), super nice!
