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).


It is located next to Old Master Q bak kut teh or known as LAU FU CHI at Paya Terubong area. It is facing the main road.



These long Chinese crullers need a special made pan just to fry them. It doesn’t fit into the normal frying pan due to its length.


It is constantly turned to make sure it is evenly fried.


You can see how your favorite Chinese crullers made here too by the boss.


Piece by piece were custom made into standard size without need a ruler.


The traditional ones without any fillings. RM1 each

    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
