You know, being Penangites, we have many versions of the same old noodles. So, let’s take a look at how many versions of koay teow th’ng we have in Penang.
Koay teow is the white, flat noodles made from rice flour. In the photo, the yellow one is the wheat flour noodle call yellow mee. Th’ng means soup.
Today, I will present to you the duck koay teow th’ng which has old ducks as the main ingredients. They practically boil the old ducks, whole (usually way past their egg laying years) for hours and hours to obtain the stock. Then, what they normally do is to slice the meat into thin slices as garnishing. The ducks’ webs will not go to waste too as they will also boil them till very tender and serve separately.
I have this paronia that if I don’t consume some liver or organ meats each month, I will be short of iron. So, this bowl with that funny looking pieces of meat is the duck’s organs. I am not sure which part of the organ, except that it is not the liver.
Good, duck koay teow th’ng is hard to find because not many hawkers are going to boil the duck stock for hours. But if you find one which have lots of customers crowding around them, you know it is good. They will sell duck’s blood, duck’s webs and duck’s intestines as well. Did I just turn off your appetite?Posted by lilian on January 24th, 2007 under Hawker foods
