Te Chang You Tiao Wang (Chinese Cruller King) at Paya Terubong Penang

Chinese cruller or more commonly known as You Tiao / Yau Char Kwai / Yiu Char Koey is the perfect companion to go along with a cup of fresh brewed Kopi O or bak kut teh. It is a famous Chinese snacks which made from flour and come in the size of 7 inches. In Penang, we have one that comes with 14 inches by Te Chang You Tiao Wang (Chinese Cruller King in Chinese).

    I love you tiao and I have actually tried the Te Chang You Tiao Wang on the last trip to Penang. After that, I have also found Bee J You Tiao in Kuching, from west to east Malaysia, I can tell you Kuching Bee J You Tiao is no joke and a really must try though it is 2 inches shorter that the Penang’s one. Check it out
