Best Koay Chap with Worst Tong Sui (Dessert)

If you never had Koay Chap in your life, this is the best in Penang, you should try this one to make it a memorable first.
The stall only starts in the evening, the older ladies in charge of taking your orders may not be very friendly but it's ok, cause the food is good ... so we have to bear with it.
That said, they are super efficient, fast and hardly get your orders wrong.

Plenty of places to sit.  This stall, which used to be by the roadside, has now bought up a shop lot of their own.  Although they are still by the road, they now have proper seating for their customers.

Standard order is RM 6 per bowl.
Very good value for money considering the amount of goodies they put inside. If you are not someone who is into spare parts, you can ask for just duck meat and koay ie the starchy carbs :-)
 Don't forget to request for the ever tasty chili sauce, if you love it, you can ask for more with no extra charge... 

New seating area is nice and clean

Now we come to the Major Rip Off !
 The shop lot owned by the Koay Chap stall is placed next to a dessert stall.
The minimum price for the dessert is RM2.50.
Do NOT let the girls pressure you to order the dessert, unless you really want to order.
You are not required to order a drink as the stall belongs to Koay Chap stall ie. you could order other drinks from any stall or shop along Kimberley street and not specifically this one.

The dessert is super diluted, tasteless and overpriced 
 Foodie will NOT like this one ...

All along Kimberley Street you will see lots of street food. One of them will be Economy Fried Bee Hoon.  A few of these stalls selling the same stuff.
The taste is rather standard.
You could buy a packet and eat at the Koay Chap place, they are ok with it.

There is also a nice Koay Teow Thing stall opposite the Koay Chap stall, Char Koay Teow (not great) and a Chee Cheong Fun (very nice)/
 All in all Kimberley Street has plenty to offer.
The ambience here is different for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Have fun exploring street food at Kimberley Street.
