This is a stall located on Kimberly Street, and after you order you can take a seat in the shop behind it, where you can order drinks. Grab the table fast, especially during busy dinner hours. The Duck Koay Chap is their signature, which comes with duck and intestine and a lot of other meat. But if you want extra... More

We stayed near the market so walking distance. This place get pretty busy all night and I am not surprised why. It is easy to order, take a seat and enjoy it. They use every thing of the duck but you can tell them which bid you don't like. Meat is tender and soup is delicious.

Personally I really love this stall!!! They served old school Koay chiap and their soup is so flavorful .... Come to the serving the portion just nice for me and price also reasonable (if not mistaken RM7 per serving). Inside the bowl is full of their signature ingredient such as duck meat, pig liver, stomach, eggs and etc. However ,... More

We were late and the koay chap was sold out. So we tried the duck porridge. I believe it comes with the same ingredients as the koay chiap but with porridge instead. The herbal soup is flavorful but the best part is the duck meat. It is very tender. I don't eat the organs so I had to pick out... More

We had the Duck Kway Chap from the cart on Kimberley Street and it was fantastic! Huge portion with lots of Chinese duck meat braised in rich 5-spice and herb stock, with homemade hand-cut rice noodles, topped with fried garlic, parsley, and chili sauce on the side. We asked for no offal. One of my favourite meals! It will fill... More

This street stall was crowded even on the evening of a week day. Managed to get a table at the corridor just behind the stall. Service was fast, and the meal delicious - not too salty, and the koay chap soup was very well flavoured. Campbell Street is definitely a good place to sample street food in Penang. Can't miss...

The soup tasted very good, full of herbs and garlic. The price is a bit on the high side but with the amount of duck meat, it definitely worth it. A good place to go if you like Koay Chap.

If you don't eat duck organ, please avoid this. I personally doesn't like organ (of any animal) so when this served, I am squeezing my eyebrows because it cuts into so small that I cannot take them out. Anyway the tastes is good, especially the porridge because me and my wife don't like the taste to be that great. Is... More
