In addition to a larger variety of toppings, Hia Ping Kuay Tiew Tom Yum also offers more than the standard ‘flat’, ‘egg’, ‘vermicelli’, noodle options. The restaurant also has Giam-ee, which resemble ‘gnocchi’ and are made from rice flour, as well as Shanghai-style noodles.
We ordered Tom Yum Egg Noodles (฿50) and can confirm it was, indeed, very impressive. The 11 toppings we ordered are:
- Deep-fried pork ball
- Deep-fried shrimp ball
- Steamed tofu filled with minced fish
- Crispy tofu filled with minced pork
- Crispy wonton
- Boiled pork wonton
- Deep fried taro
- Sliced fish sausage
- Soft-boiled egg
- Red BBQ pork (Only on Sunday)
The chef at Hia Ping Kuay Tiew Tom Yum makes the toppings daily, ensuring their freshness and vibrant flavour. For us, the deep fried taro – chewy taro slices and peanuts enveloped in a light, crunchy bean curd wrapper – was definitely a highlight.

Thai noodle soup varieties
Hia Ping Kuay Tiew Tom Yum is very famous for their tom yum noodles, as the broth here includes chilli paste which gives the soup a sweet-yet-spicy taste and smoky aroma. For those who aren’t looking for a spice bomb, the restaurant also offers clear soup. The unspicy alternative’s garlic and pepper-based zings are just as vivid, but without the chillies. For those opting for the clear soup, we would recommend that you pair it with giam-ee noodles.

Hia Ping Kuay Tiew Tom Yum also serves yen ta foh soup, a broth that is iconic for its vibrant pink tint. The broth is seasoned with a fuschia sauce made from fermented tofu, which adds a unique tangy scent as well as subtle tarte-ness to the flavour. The restaurant also has a different set of toppings that are best suited for yen ta foh: steamed pork blood, fermented squid, and morning glory.
