Lip-smacking Penang-style kuih teow soup at Hock Seng’s

Hock Seng serves the most delicious Penang-style Kuih Teow Soup with chicken, duck, pork slices and fishball.

Kuih teow soup is a favourite Penang-style hawker dish but unfortunately tough to find in the Klang Valley due to the overlap that pork noodles and classic Teochew fishball noodles has.

But there’s a fantastic hawker stall within a kopitiam in Ara Damansara that serves up the perfect bowl time and again.

Hock Seng Kopitiam in Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

The version at Do Re Mi kopitiam in Ara Damansara was previously written about and this is an updated post as the stall has now moved to a new location just a few shops away, with a new owner running the whole show now.

Note though that this is a kopitiam with more than just the one kuih teow soup stall.

Apparently the man who operates this current hawker stall decided to make it a business after his retirement.

His is a family recipe originated from his grandfather and father’s stalls back in Penang, with the original stall starting business way back in 1907, over a century ago.

According to him, the soup takes six hours on the stove, starting from late at night until the wee hours of the next morning to achieve that subtle yet sweet and savoury signature taste that a “proper” broth for kuih teow soup should have.

With kuih teow, bean sprouts, spring onions, garlic oil, vegetables and a side of cili padi, you have a complete meal.

As for ingredients, there’s chicken, duck, pork slices as well as fish cake and homemade fish balls to choose from.

Add in kuih teow, bean sprouts, spring onions, garlic oil, some vegetables and a side of cili padi, and you have a complete bowl of goodness perfect for a great start to the morning.

If you’re a fan of kuih teow soup or comfort food in general, this one’s worth checking out.
