Yong Hwa Kway Teow @ Taman Perling in Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Kway teow soup, which is a Teochew staple, can be found everywhere in Johor Bahru. Among the more popular ones, Yong Hwa is the local favourite in Taman Perling.

The design of the shop is a blend of the modern and traditional. The bright contemporary sign board stands out among the shop lots along Jalan Persisiran Perling 1. Yong Hwa has a cool comfortable air conditioned section like many modern cafés. It is very popular with customers who welcome a respite from the searing afternoon sun and stifling tropical humidity. 

At the front of the shop, the cooking area and the ingredients are laid out like a traditional push cart stall – charming and attractive.

The wide range of super fresh ingredients sits colourfully on a bed of cold ice cubes. Customers can pick any additional ingredients that they want at extra cost. There are prawns, fish slices, abalone slices, fish cakes and many more. 

The area in front is like a mini stage – the kway teow and ingredients are prepared with seasoned, swift, fluid, ballet like movements of the stall holder and his assistant. Always calm and efficient, no matter how big is the crowd of customers waiting.

The kway teow with the fresh rice fragrance is soft, thin, and melts in your mouth. In fact, it will start to "melt" as you stir it with the fragrant chili and dark sauce.

For RM4, we get a load of different ingredients with the soup like handmade pork ball, tofu, fish ball, lean pork slices, and liver. All are skillfully done just right by the stall holder.

The clear soup is naturally sweet as it is made by boiling fresh pork bones and also seafood.

Definitely a worthy favourite among kway teow soup shops.

    1. LOL at one hawker a day, I have a long, long way to go :D Thanks for pointing out the closing time. Appreciate it :D

    2. oh no... There seems to be a bug that is preventing me from making amendments. Will change closing time to 5:00pm when possible. Thanks :)

  2. I think they have a branch at 101 restaurant in Taman Sentosa in front of Sentosa Plaza.
