Queue not too long at 2.30pm on a Friday. I waited a decent 15 mins only. Asked for more chili, no cockles and added egg for 50 cents. For $5, I thot it was a pretty small plate. But it was powerful in taste. The chili was great. Didn’t have the lap cheong that I don’t like so I was happy. Superb wok hei. It was a bit wet for my liking but acceptable. I really really liked this, thou I could do with more pork lard. Hubby declared this has taken the crown from the one at Zion Road. But I can’t decide. I need to eat them again. 🤤

I would even say Hai Kee would even belong in the top 5 stalls in Singapore. One of their key signature would be that every plate of Kway Teow is cooked to order individually. I love the char and wok hei he imparts to each plate. He's very generous with the cockles as well. Hai Kee is definitely a hawker legend. Definitely worth a visit while you still can.

Sometimes you just want to indulge in some char kway teow, this hidden gem at Syed Alwi Road is sure to satisfy that craving. Think adequate wok hei and oily kway teow and noodles that is just nice, although i would prefer it to be wetter. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ✨#sgig #sgcafe #sgeats #sgfood #forkyeah #foodandwine #f52grams #sgfoodporn #instafood #food #foodie #foodporn #foodshare #foodstagram #foodspotting #foreverhungry #foodphotography #eeeeeats #foodgasm #burpple #onthetable #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #feedfeed #onthetableproject #bestfoodworld #devourpower

Wok hei is without a doubt one of the deciding factors for good plate of char kway teow, and our Burpple Tastemakers are happy to report that it's a score at this popular Hong Lim Market & Food Centre stall. The Char Kway Teow (from $3) here sees slippery noodles slicked in a flavoursome black sauce (a bonus if you like your char kway teow wet). Burpple Tastemaker Jean Kao also gives it top marks for the generous amount of egg stirred in and bountiful cockles. While this dish doesn't feature Chinese sausage like most char kway teow stalls do, the cook makes up for it with his heavy hand on the pork lard — yum!

Pro tip: Skip the crazy queues and visit at tea time. Jean came by at 4pm and waited in line only for a decent 20 minutes.

Went during a weekday and it was crowded. Tried their mocha but it wasn’t quite warm enough and found it was a bit lacking in flavour. Coffee isn’t their strength but their cakes are.

The Citron blanc is a lemon tart done right. A good balance of the lemon curd and light cheese.

The Yatsura is their signature and a must try if you’re there.

I want to give a shout out for their cream puffs. They look really ordinary but the choux puff is just this right combo of chewy and lightly crunchy. The texture is something I don’t see elsewhere.

It’s my fav place for CKT!

It’s more moist than most but not till wet like 老夫子(old airport road).
Every bit of noodle and kway Teow is cover with the black sauce as well as the pork lard. Which makes every mouth so tasteful. It may be moist but still pack with wok hei, which requires great skill.

Have been having it’s since schooling days. Still my fav!

Slightly sweet but fried nicely wet and soft. There was so many elderly in the queue. I don’t remember having to queue for this but I think the impending rise in price may have prompted many to come while it’s still cheap (at $3 per plate). Outram Fried Kway Teow has been a staple of Hong Lim for a long time. The cockles are yummy!!! 🐬Come before they raise prices for 2018. MerRyan is happy! 🐳 #merlion #merryansg #マーライオン #honglimfoodcentre #charkwayteow #hawker #hawkerfood #burpple

Was planning to go Jalan Besar market eat my fav ice kacang but was stun when saw them under renovation.

So try my luck at the laksa which is also my fav. But turn away when I that Long queue even at 3pm!!! Just not my day...

Then remember that there’s a CKT nearby. Turn on Bubble and search. Bingo! Fu ji! It’s very nearby.

Only two ppl order before me so the wait is damn fast. To be frank, I feel not enough black sauce, not enough wok hei. But their version is much more dry compare to many. Which may makes U feel less sinful?! Haha

Can taste that it’s really not too bad but if I were to order next time would ask for more black sauce.

I recalled the wok hei was not thorough the last time i tried 4 years ago. Last weekend’s char kway teow ($3.5/4) had every strand that smells and tastes full of wok hei. You know the wok hei game is strong when it still taste excellent even after it turned cold. Each morsel is given the sweet fish sauce and soya sauce treatment and loaded with crispy pork lards and Chinese sausage that further enhance the fragrance. They can’t be bothered with “waste time” ingredients like fish cakes or prawns. I like that it is not overly wet and each strand of flat noodle is coated with remnants of the caramelized sauces and it is not overly sweet or jelat. Omg this could take over Zion Road as my most favourite CKT. I need to make a trip to Zion Road soon. Ok end of swooning. Now go back to work. #igivesecondchance

Despite the stall name, it's the Carrot Cake (from $2.50) that our Burpple Tastemakers are raving about. If you like your chai tow kway chunky and saucy, then this might just be the one for you. Burpple Tastemaker Amanda Liu loves how the carrot cake is cut into larger, chunky pieces, which gave her the luxury of choice for eating whole and cutting into smaller pieces on her own. On top of that, the sweet black sauce is well balanced, and the hawker is generous on both the pickled radish and eggs, making this one of her top choices for a hearty breakfast or a lighter lunch.

Finally I brought my ns mate @carl_holmberg to try the CKT . Currently The Stall is hand over to The Stall Owner Daughter who is my friend @chroniclesofgwennon. I can say It is up to the Standard of Her Father Cooking. Initially was thinking that nobody will take over the Family Business. It was Good that She took over the Business if the Legacy will be gone. I really Aspire & Respect her.
