Eating the Best Char Koay Teow in Malaysia | Malaysian Street Food Heaven in Penang |

    If you love noodles, you will love the Char Koay Teow in the Malaysian Food Heaven of Penang, Malaysia. This is where I fell in love with Malaysian food. This Char Koay Teow was found on Kimberly street, and I couldn't get enough of the flavour!
    If you want to come to Penang to eat this mind blowing Malaysian cuisine, I suggest trying Char Koay Teow. It is famous all throughout Malaysia, but here in Penang is the best. Many Char Koay Teow stalls are open long to serve those craving spice at any time of day.
    I really want to come back every year to Georgetown to eat and perhaps learn some Malaysian food recipes. In Pulau Pinang (Penang)
    I spent 3 weeks eating Penang food and afterwards I didn't want to leave. The food here is good enough for a lifetime. You can dine on Indian cuisine, Indian street food, Chinese, and Malay food every day and you will never get bored with the huge variety of food. If you come to Malaysia, you must eat in Penang and Kuala Lumpur, perhaps even take a Penang food tour or Kuala Lumur food tour from a local. The food hunt is a lot of fun here!
    I hope this is helpful for you the next time you go to eat Char Koay Teow! Please leave me a comment down below, it helps a lot.
    Thanks again for watching this Char Koay Teow food and travel video!
    My name is Trevor James and I'm a hungry traveler and Mandarin learner that's currently living in Chengdu, Szechuan, China, eating up as much delicious .
    I enjoy tasting and documenting as many dishes as I can and I'm going to make videos for YOU along the way! Over the next few years, I'm going to travel around the world and document as much food as I can for you! I love delicious food! This channel will show you real Chinese food and real local food, not that stuff they serve in the Buzzfeed challenge.
    Thanks for watching, and please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, or critique in the comments below!
    Please make sure to subscribe, it's the best way to keep my videos in your feed, and give me a thumbs up too if you liked this food video, thanks, I appreciate it! You could also share the video too if you liked it, that would be awesome.

    It's good that you're in good spirit to let him humored you a little bit. And I think it's fair, because you're asking him for his secret recipe. You're asking his secret recipe for earning his keep, then he bantered you for a little bit. You're still come off gaining more.

    Is Char Koay Teow very similar to Pad Thai?

    • 焕
       10 months ago

      Buyu Chen
      Nope, Pad Thai is derived from Char Koay Teow with bits of Thai flavour, so basically it's a Chinese-based Thai dish.
      Hope this helps
