Pudu continues to amaze me with its delightful offering of unique food. This time, it’s char koay teow with salted egg located at the far end section of ‘wai sek kai’.
The current owner, Madam Wong took over the stall from an old lady back in the year 2000. She started off by selling drinks and ABC with her husband and it was only until a few years ago she decided to branch out into selling fried noodles. “Adapt or die”, that’s what she told me.
It’s also worth mentioning that the salted egg she uses goes through a steaming process then flattened into bits, which is why it’s also called ‘golden sand’.
Basically, there are two versions of salted egg fried koay teow available. By default, two spoonfuls of salted egg are added into the wok for a quick stir fry right before the noodle is done. That way, the salted egg melts completely and the flavor and aroma get absorbed into the noodle.
I had the other version which is shown in the photo above. The same amount of salted egg is spooned over the noodle for extra texture. And as usual, it also comes with a good handful of fresh seafood like prawns and cockles – all cooked just right.
