Sri Tebrau Kway Teow Kia 大马花园粿條仔 in Kee Kim Huat 纪金发 Kopitiam in Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Sri Tebrau kway teow kia 大马花园粿條仔 is one of the oldest names in Johor Bahru.
阿祥 Ah Xiang, the third generation at the helm
Now in it's third generation and located in the popular Kee Kim Huat kopitiam, Sri Tebrau kway teow kia was started way back in 1947 along Jalan Bukit Meldrum (operating alongside the other old name in JB kway teow kia, Woon Kiang kway teow kia).

The old style 古早味 braising broth of Sri Tebrau kway teow kia is dark, savoury and just delicately herbal. The braising sauce is not too oily, and is tasty and highly drinkable. The braising sauce is also not loaded with salt or MSG - I did not thirst even after slurping it all up :P

The soft and smooth kway teow kia complemented the pork and organs perfectly.

I especially like the naturally sweet taste of Sri Tebrau kway teow kia's braised pork and organs.

Sri Tebrau's braised pork and organs have a delightful, springy bite and texture. The braised pork and organs have just the right delicately chewy feel that is neither rubbery, too soft nor hard.

Dip the chewy, bouncy pork and organs in the braising broth and this chili sauce, and I got one of the tastiest kway teow kia that I have tasted so far.

Sri Tebrau kway teow kia is definitely holding its own as one of the best kway teow kia in JB.

  1. looks good!! And its near causeway!!

    Is this directy opposite Taman Sri Tebra hawker centre (where hiang kee seaood is at)?

    1. Yes,that's the one. Opposite the Shell petrol station :)

  2. To me, this is the best kway-teow-kia in JB! :)

  3. The best time to go eat this is before 12 noon, as it gets crowded after that time. By 1 pm most of the items would have been sold out.


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
