Te Chang You Tiao @ Paya Terubong, Penang

By : Chha

You know how amazing human brain works ? Taking the old classic chinese You Tiao (油条) and make it something new. So for those of you who don't know what You Tiao is, how about calling it the Chinese Cruller or Chinese Oil Stick ? Still don't ring the bell ? How about the classic name Yau Char Kway or Hokkien Eu Char Kueh, ok enough .. simple the Fried Breadstick.

Looks familiar now ? haha .. This stall here in Paya Terubong is taking the You Tiao into a whole new level by stuffing other food into it and making it taste good. Te Chang You Tiao Wang Enterprise is a small stall by the road side that sell You Tiao and Soya Bean Drinks, it become famous lately due to its creativity in turning You Tiao into something special.

Te Chang You Tiao, though it is located by the road side, but its surrounding is clean and it makes us feel comfortable eating their special You Tiao there. Tables are limited so sometimes will have to wait for table or you can try to come early so that you can get table easily.

Sausage + Mayonnaise You Tiao

The food here is tasty, well depending on individual, some might not like the tuna or the sausage and some might like both white and black sesame, it really is depending on individual but for us we feel that the You Tiao is well cooked and it is crunchy all 'You Tiao' round, haha ! which is slightly different compare to the normal You Tiao where the middle part is less crunchy. The Sausage and Mayonnaise You Tiao is nice and the other one that we like is the Black and White Sesame Twins You Tiao.

There are still two more You Tiao that we tried but we don't really like it, maybe you might, so here goes the photos for the other two.

Tuna + Mayonnaise You Tiao

We ordered Tuna And Mayonnaise You Tiao but from the look and the taste, it feels like as if it is a vegetable you tiao, haha ! We can't taste the tuna in the you tiao, it tasted more like cabbage in it.

Floss + Mayonnaise You Tiao

We really like the Black Soya Bean Drinks. It comes in bowl which is enough for two people. 

Black Soya Bean Drinks

The food is good here and the price is not expensive too. A bowl of Black Soya Bean Drinks cost us RM1.50 and 4 plates of You Tiao cost us RM6.50. Total damage done for the day is only RM9.50, ok right considering the amount of food for that price.

To make it easier for you to find this place look for Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Kong Min Cawangan 2 at Paya Terubong, if you are coming from Farlim, this stall is right before the Kong Ming school. Meaning, if you are coming from Farlim, you will need to turn right at the T-Junction after Farlim McDonalds and Caltex where in front of you is a Shell Petrol Station. After you turn right, drive straight until you see Jabatan Bomba & Penyelamat Malaysia on your right. Keep drive straight and you will see Te Chang You Tiao on your left which is before the Kong Ming school.
