For those looking for great food in Penang during night time, even after clubbing or thinking of having supper, Dhoby Ghaut Cafe is one of the late night stalls that operates during post-dinner hours.
The location of the Dhoby Ghaut Cafe is located at Sungai Nibong Kecil and it is just beside D’Aver Cafe. This particular stall is originally from Dhoby Ghaut Road, that is why the name of this coffee shop is also called Dhoby Ghaut Cafe. I don’t know why the signboard is putting up in Japanese word “食の屋”? may be one of the investors is Japanese.
This is a snap of the front stall. There are only 2 stalls available in this cafe, therefore you will never get the stall wrong.
The price for normal Koay Teow Th’ng is RM2.50 per bowl. Even the dry maggi mee is RM 2.50. It is considered reasonable for the stall owner to work OT selling until late night.
Check out all crews here are happily working. All of them are laughing while cooking and serving. I love to have meal in this kind of environment, the food will taste nicer even it’s just a simple or plain serving compared to the stalls with sad and grumpy faces of people.
The first order, bee hoon soup with additional duck cube blood. Nice blood, for those who love to eat cube blood, this is a must to try as the softness and the taste of these duck blood are excellent. The combination of the duck meat and also the meat ball is just as great.
Next is the famous duck meat koay teow th’ng. The taste of the soup is exactly the same as the bee hoon soup. I believe it was cooked with the duck frame for long hours and that made the taste more ducky aroma. The main attraction is on the soup and the soft duck meat while the koay teow is another OEM from any bean sprouts stall.
For those who still not satisfied with your cravings for food, you can always order additional bean sprouts duck meat as your side dish. The duck meat is not baked or deep-fried as usual, instead it’s steamed. There are some differences, again it’s a thumbs-up for this.
This is one of the recomended stalls for nice food on late night in terms of taste and price.
