After some intensive search I finally found a Char Koay Teow (Malay style) stall that’s as good, if not better than Mie Cord‘s. Warung Atok operates at Seri Buluh restaurant and this is their first branch outside JB. They claim to sell 92% authentic northern style Char Kuey Teow. Why 92%? Beats me.
Warung Atok’s menu offers three varieties of CKT, each topped with a different assortment of seafood. The cheapest option (biasa) comes with the usual white prawns (sea type) and cockles @ RM5.50.
Appearance wise it looked promising and that was a good indication that it was going to be great. And as expected, it was delicious.
But what really impressed us was the quality of the prawns here. As far as CKT goes in KL, Warung Atok serves the freshest prawns we have had. They were cooked just right, easy to peel and succulent.
If your budget allows, I highly recommend that you go for the CKT with Udang Harimau CKT @ RM10.50. Besides being significantly larger and meatier than the white prawns, the tiger prawns also tasted sweeter with a firmer bite. I’d say the extra RM5 is worth paying for.
