One of the reasons for making our way across the causeway to Johor Bahru is to try the Duck Egg Fried Kueh Teow at Taman Sri Tebrau Hawker Centre. I always hear from the older generation that Singapore used to have duck egg fried kway teow but nowadays there is no more due to the stringent regulations for importing duck eggs.
At Penang Fried Kueh Teow. customer has a choice of either chicken egg or duck egg for their plate of fried kway teow. Upon order, the stall uncle cooks them from scratch.
Of course we chose to have the duck eggs for our plate of fried kway teow since we have made the long journey up north. Furthermore, we don't get to eat duck eggs in Singapore anymore.
Duck Egg Fried Kueh Teow 4.2/5
So what is my verdict of Duck Egg Fried Kueh Teow? The used of duck egg indeed makes a different, giving the plate of fried kway teow a lift in aroma. The combination of sweet and savoury, chilli sauce and the stall uncle's fying skill, this is a delicious plate of fried kway teow packed with wok hei and aroma that is worth the calories and journey up North.
Although we can't get duck egg fried kway teow in Singapore anymore, it is great to know that we can still savour the dish, just taking about an hour ride across the causeway. For those that not tried duck egg fried kway teow, I would recommend you to give it a try.
