I have not eaten a plate of Fried Kway Teow for a long time. Partly it is hard to find a good one nowadays and of course for health reason I do not want to waste my calories for a lousy plate of fried kway teow. I broke my fast for char kway teow when I dropped by Lai Heng Fried Kuay Teow & Cooked Food at Shunfu Mart Food Centre. I could not help queuing and getting a plate of fried kway teow.
Besides selling Char Kway Teow, the stall also sells Otah. It is an interesting pairing and probably the only stall in Singapore doing so. I observed many customers bought the otah to go along with the char kway teow. As for me, I decided to give it a miss as I wanted to try other stuff in the food centre.
Char Kway Teow 4.2/5
The Char Kway Teow ($3) is the wet and slippery type. For the pricing, the portion is quite generous. Though it was lacking the wok-hei fragrant, I like that it is not too sweet and well balanced. In the delicious plate of char kway teow, one can find lup cheong, egg, bean sprout, cockles and fish cake.
Besides the sweet sauce, what I think that makes the plate of noodle tasted even more delicious is the lup cheong, cockles and egg. The ingredients seem to perk up the whole flavour profile, making the moist noodles even more slurping good. One word, shiok!
It seems like there is another Lai Heng stall at Sembawang Hill Food Centre. I am not sure whether they are related but I suspect they do as it is offering the same pairing of char kway teow and otah like the stall at Shunfu Mart Food Centre.
