Kueh Teow Soup: Comfort food never tasted so good

Nothing makes a better pick-me-up that a piping-hot bowl of soup and noodles when one is recovering from an illness or simply wishing to keep warm when it’s raining cats and dogs outside.

And although many hawkers make a commendable enough broth, one that stands head and shoulders above the rest can be found in bustling Johor Bahru.

The famous Ah Hua Kueh Teow in Johor Bahru

Called Ah Hua Kueh Teow, this restaurant serves Kueh Teow Soup embellished with juicy fish balls, slices of succulent pork and liver, a generous dollop of minced pork, romaine lettuce, and even a sprinkling of fried lard and seaweed garnish, all sitting in a broth that’s subtle in flavour and comforting to the belly.

At Ah Hua Kuih Teow just outside KSL resort in JB. Two senior ladies from Singapore shared a table with me and offered the fish cake they ordered. Was a great breakfast overall for everyone

Kueh Teow Soup: Honest to goodness comfort food.

A side of sliced red chillis and soya sauce comes with each bowl for that added kick, making this simple yet satisfying breakfast just the thing you need to kickstart your day.

If your tastebuds are itching for something extra, do get a plate of deep-fried fish cake as a side dish. Golden brown and crisp on the outside, soft and juicy on the inside, it was simply delicious and made a perfect pairing with the Kuey Teow soup.

Fish cake anyone?
