When you mentioned Char Koay Teow everyone loves it. There are many stalls selling delicious char koay teow but have you tried the one at Lorong Selamat ? The Auntie with the red beret manning the stall is the lady chef busy with her wok at all the time.
So how long do you need to wait for a plate ? Estimate of waiting time 30 minutes for my char kway teow sometimes longer ( avoid lunch period ) . While waiting for the Auntie to finish frying your char koay teow sit back relax and have a bowl of ice kacang to cool down the hot temperature outside. As for me I was busy with my Fuji XT1, taking snap shots of her. ( luckily she never tell me to stop )
The charcoal fire gives the plates of char koay teow a distinct smokey complex flavor which cannot be achieved using gas stoves.
A plate of Char koay teow is RM10
Finally a hot plate of Char Koay Teow arrived. It was so tasty and delicious with the fresh big prawns. One plate is always not enough for me.
