Char Koay Teow 34
Here are six tried and tested Char Koay Teow stalls located in KL and PJ to satisfy your fix. For Malays, Char Koay Teow usually means the lightly fried version in gravy, in which the sauce plays a more important role than 'wok hei'.
High quality and fresh ingredients aside, every hawker has their own unique blend of soy sauce that distinguishes their Char Koay Teow from the rest.
Third time's the charm. We finally got to try the much-talked about Char Koay Teow at Chuan Lee restaurant after two failed visits.
Recently, I saw someone sharing this Char Koay Teow basah topped with flower crabs in Facebook. It drew my attention so I went looking for it immediately. Char Kuey Teow Ketam Berasap ZLR is located in Batu Caves and although it sounds far, the journey took us only about 15 minutes from Kepong via MRR2.
Recently, a Char Koay Teow stall in Seremban went viral because of the ridiculous amount of cockles (siham) they serve. The plate was topped with so much cockles that you can't even see the noodle underneath.
It made us wonder if it was actually cockles with fried noodle instead. Our curiosity was aroused hence we decided to drop by 品香楼 to check it out last weekend while en route to Melaka.
Just a quick update to let you guys know that Penang Corner has shifted to a larger stall a few doors away from their previous location. With the extra space, it's more like a mini food court now and they could accommodate more stalls in it too.
Besides Aunty Gemuk, Lau Wan is another pork-free Penang-style char koay teow in PJ. Apparently, his char koay teow is so good that it recently won The Star People's Food Awards for the best char koay teow category. In fact, it beat the runner-up by almost double the votes. With that in mind, I had to drop by and try it for myself.
