Duck meat in Kuey Teow soup: Breakfast just got tastier

Penang-style Kuey Teow Soup with duck meat.

For those who aren’t familiar with Penang-style Kuey Teow Soup, this dish is usually prepared with flat rice noodles dunked in a clear broth.

The dish is further embellished with fish balls, duck/chicken/pork meat, sliced fish cake, chopped spring onions, fried garlic, and sometimes even a bit of pork lard and coagulated blood (like the O&S version).

The Kuey Teow Soup and Prawn Mee stall at Restoran Tropikiri in Petaling Jaya.

At a stall in Restoran Tropikiri in Taman Bukit Mayang Emas, Petaling Jaya, their kuih teow soup is prepared with delicious morels of duck meat cooked to perfection.

Their take on the famous Penang-style Kuey Teow Soup is as proper as any – the soup here is light and flavourful yet carries a tinge of sweetness undoubtedly contributed by the duck meat.

The bits of fried lard certainly give it an extra savoury note that is pleasing on the taste buds and the bouncy fish balls are an extra treat.

If you want comfort food for breakfast that doesn’t attack your senses too early in the morning, this dish is the perfect way to start the morning.
