Photo Hunt #35: Breakfast

My husband and I love to spend weekends in Kep. And while there, we stay at our friend’s newly opened guesthouse. Called the Kep Lodge, it offers six charming bungalows with a great view of the Gulf of Thailand and Bokhor mountain. We stay longer especially when it’s holidays, waking up late, having breakfast at the restaurant and enjoying the view. Breakfast is served free at the restaurant. Although the choices are very limited for the free breakfast, however, the restaurant offers a variety of international menu for lunch and dinner. The bar might be small but you would be amazed at how many drinks they can mix for you! But I digress now.

Rob and I loved this simple pork noodle soup, kiwtiew mi, prepared by the local staff for breakfast. A local breakfast fare, kiwtiew mi is served steaming hot; it’s so tasty, with generous amount of pork (or chicken, or beef) and vegetables sprinkled with freshly ground Kampot pepper. A bowl of this is surely a great way to start our day.

  1. Interestingly, “kiwtiew” sounds like the Hokkien “koay teow” which means flat noodles. But what I see used is more like the noodles known in Hokkien and Bahasa Malaysia as “mee”(and sounds like “mi”): i.e., egg noodles!

  2. Thanks, guys. I agree with Carver, this week’s PH allows us to see what others have/had for breakfast. For me, a bowl of kiwtiew mie is enough to last me till the evening tea.

    YTSL, it’s actually egg noodles. It’s one of the many influences of Chinese in Khmer food.
