'Chit Long' means 7th Village and it's the Chinese name of Restaurant Lin. Why it's called 'Chit Long'? I was there 18years ago, when this famous Koey Teow Th'ng was still located at the Butterworth area called 'Chit Long'. It has started business from a small stall with few wooden doors and chairs into a two-shophouses restaurant nowadays.
Koay Teow Th'ng is the flat-typed rice noodles in clear soup. Alternatively, if you dislike Koey Teow, you can ask for meehoon, yellow noodle or Bee Tai Bak. The specialty of 'Chit Long' is for its soup and the minced pork meat. The soup has a strong pork taste with natural sweetness and the marinated minced pork meat is delicious, with sufficient tenderness when biting in the mouth. I've ordered the new dish Ramen soup that comes with egg, minced pork, sliced pork, fish balls and green vegetable. The portion is little bit too big for my appetite. My Boyboy dislike soupy food, so he has asked for a bowl of dried Koey Teow.
The all-time favourite side orders are the soft and tender steamed chicken and also the fresh vegetable in soya sauce. To those whom like oily fried food, do try out the fried lobak whereby the meat is wrapped inside the tofu sheet and the fried 'Guan Chiang', a type of yam cake roll with the tofu sheet.
In the morning or during the weekends, here will always be packed with customers, for a bowl of delicious Koey Teow Th'ng... Yum Yum!
