“Kimberly Street (Lebuh Kimberley) has long been one of the most famous street food streets in George Town, Penang, and the street has a specific Chinese influence to it. While there are many things you can eat along the street, including a legendary place for char kuey teow, the most famous restaurant and food stall that attracts the biggest crowd each evening is Restoran Kimberly. The flavor of the broth, the assortment of duck meat and pig innards, and the soft noodle rolls, made this bowl of duck kway chap outstandingly delicious.”
