For Light but Flavourful Char Kway Teow

Having worked in various cafes and commercial kitchens, female hawker Gwen Teng gave that all up to be the successor of her father's popular char kway teow stall, which he has run for over 30 years. He's certainly left large shoes to fill, but the verdict so far is that her cooking is of the same high standards as her father's! Tastemaker Xing Wei Chua likes that the Char Kway Teow (from $3) here uses only flat rice noodles (no yellow noodles added), and that the taste is not overwhelmed by copious amounts of sauce. He finds the version here lighter, absorbing the flavours of fresh seafood like cockles and huge prawns, and it has a lovely wok hei to round up the flavours. On top of that, it comes generously loaded with bean sprouts, eggs, fish cake, lup cheong, chives and pork lard.

Dong Ji Char Kway Teow~
Finally having one of my all time favourite local dishes at Old Airport Road.

A place where many have come and conquered the stalls with their legendary & signature dishes. And this stall happens to be managed by a close and dear friend of mine! Having help her father out for a period of time, she's now running the show. I've tasted both her fathers and her cooking. And they both have the exact taste as to my memory. For sure if you're ever around do head down and support her! 😬
It's been a while since I've posted anything due to some personal issues. I recently had an operation done and had been refrained from walking at all till today. And the first order was to definitely to have some comfort food and to enjoy myself. So I'll be slightly more active as time comes by and i do hope you'll support this ig page of mine. 🤙🏻🍻

For Smoky and Eggy Char Kway Teow

An appetising dish of fried rice noodles and various ingredients slicked in a thick and sweet dark sauce, Char Kway Teow is a hawker centre favourite and a must-try on any food lover's itinerary. Cap your visit to Chinatown with a meal at this stall in Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, revered for its rendition of Char Kway Teow ($3). Expect a mix of flat rice noodles and yellow noodles, tossed in the above-mentioned sauce, eggs, bean sprouts, cockles and lard (trust us, it's worth the cholesterol), and fried over an open flame till smoky (what locals term 'wok hei'). The key to a good plate of char kway teow lies in the cooking technique and an expert management of heat, which the cook here has nailed down pat. The result here is a faultless plate of slippery, saucy and eggy deliciousness.

Char Kway Teow

Was looking through Facebook and saw many food bloggers recommending this particular char kway teow, so decided to try today.

Verdict: One of the best i've tried in Singapore so far, every bite is full of wok hei taste, a definite must try!

Location: 45 Syed Alwi Road, Shan Ding Coffeeshop
Operation Hours: 2pm to 11pm Daily

A healthy version of the sinful charkwayteow.

Fried without using pork or lard. Garnished with boiled chye sim and crispy tiny silver fish. There is the usual egg and of course cockles (only afew pieces). Love the crunchy beansprouts. Tasted pretty good even without the lard. Ask for extra chilli for more bite.
A very small portion for $4 which is a medium size. After slurping the plate clean, I was still feeling hungry. It is not weird eating boiled chye sim with charkwayteow. Somehow I feel it actually helps to tone down the oilyness. So it does not mean less sinful is not delicious.

Char Kway Teow

Char Kway Teow ($5)
Been a long while since my last plate of ckt and it is most regrettable to be in the vicinity of 18 char kway teow at Zion Riverside Food Centre without stopping by for this multi-award winning hawker! Expect to wait as there is always a queue plus the chef cooks each plate individually!
This medium sized plate is chock full of fishcake, beansprouts, chinese sausage, crispy pork latd and fresh cockles! There were so many cockles it was pointless trying to count them. Portion is very huge by today's hawker standards imo. Wok hei and flavour definitely evident. If I were to compare this to my other favourite, outram park ckt at hong lim food centre though, I guess hong lim's rendition edges this out by a tad as I feel that Outram ckt's noodles wins in flavour even though the portion size pales in comparison.

Thomson // Charkuayteow

Also available in $2.50 portion

WAITING TIME: 5min (Shunfu Mart is a deserted place at night and we were one of the only few customers around)

Huge serving size! (Or is it because we were the last two customers before they closed at 7+pm?)
Good amount of good-sized cockles
Comes with fish cake and Chinese sausage
Friendly auntie taking orders
Wok hei is not apparent here
Sweet and moist

WILL WE RETURN? For CKT cravings when in Thomson, yes
