(BM) Bukit Mertajam Duck Egg Char Koay Teow – Bukit Mertajam is famous for duck egg char koay teow, yes or no? That’s what my girlfriend told me. George Town also has duck egg char koay teow, just frying with duck egg is top-up request, where as in Bukit Mertajam, you only get a choice of egg and that’s duck egg. Duck egg makes your char koay teow taste better.
There’s one good one in Bukit Mertajam that used to locate on the roadside of Jalan Kulim has now moved to a new place, also on Jalan Kulim, but to be exact, is at Kampung Baru, in a coffee shop.
I was having hard time looking for it because there’s not much people posted it on the Internet or Facebook. My girlfriend asked around her friends and finally we found the place.
At RM4.50 a plate with a deep fried egg omelete. It’s good in the sense of different with others that I’d in George Town. The koay teow is darker because of different soy sauce used and best of all, lots of lards (not healthy though)! The deep fried egg omelette is compliment to the koay teow and it’s a must add-on when you order a plate of this. If the koay teow can be dryer than it will be best.
Opens only at night, after 8pm.
