This little street-side stall at the intersection of Ngah Boo Lane and Kimberley Street (near Carnarvon Street) is outrageously popular with local connoiseurs of Penang-style "koay teow th'ng" (flat rice noodles in soup). There are two popular versions of "koay teow th'ng" - the pork version and the duck-meat version, and this Ngah Boo Lane stall specializes in the latter.
I'd passed by this stall on a few occasions during my previous visits to Penang in the past few years, but had never, ever been able to procure a table. It's perpetually packed!
So, I can count myself *extremely* lucky this morning to be able to finally get a vacant table during a rare lull period.
My verdict on the duck meat "koay teow th'ng"? It was simply *divine*! :-D
Silky smooth flat rice noodles, garnished with thinly sliced duck meat, fish balls, thin match-stick strips of pork, duck liver(YUM!), bits of golden lardons, crisp-fried garlic, and finely-chopped scallions. The soup was a light, delicately-flavored pork-duck consomme. Absolutely perfect!
