On early Saturday morning, we left Penang at 6.45am and headed to Alor Star. It was a working trip for my husband, we just tagged along during the 2 weeks school's break. Arrived Sg Petani almost 8.00am.
Koay Chap - This authentic hawker delight seemed only can be found in Sungai Petani, Kedah. Correct me, if otherwise. The stall opens early in the morning, and by 9.30am the food is sold out. We saw local people came to 'ta pau' (literary means buy in pack to take away). So, be sure to go there earlier to avoid disappointment.Location - Its in the town center opposite the Sg Petani TM office. A lane behind a row of shops, selling foods in the morning only.
The stall owner told us that when he was 13 years old, he followed and helped out his father to man the stall, today the business is entering to the 3rd generation.
