Sin Hwa Coffee Shop
The old lady of the famous char koay teow stall of Sin Hwa Coffee Shop has recently passed down her recipe, her skills and the stall over to the handling of her protégé, her grandson; as is to be expected, many have reported a decline in quality but acknowledged, however, that it remains one of the best char koay teow in Penang. Besides, the char koay teow still comes with the signature addition of duck eggs or squids, if you so choose. Besides that, there is also a laksa stall that serves its popular variation of the assam laksa (spicy noodle soup with a tamarind base) and the laksa lemak (spicy noodle soup with rich coconut gravy).
