char Koay teow (炒粿條)

Em.. char Koay teow (炒粿條) my favorite as well. literally "fried flat noodles", is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia and Singapore. It is made from flat rice noodles (Shāhé fěn in Mandarin Chinese), approximately 1 cm or slightly narrower in width, fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chilli, prawns, cockles, egg, bean sprouts and Chinese chives. Sometimes slices of Chinese sausage and fish cake are added. It is fried in pork fat, with crisp croutons of pork lard, which give it its characteristic taste.

The plate of my favourite Kimberly Street char koay teow. The egg are barely cooked and the koay teow is rather moist. Hidden inside are lots of mantis prawns and prawns. I think a plate costs RM3.80. Kimberly Street is somewhere near Komtar, accessible from Penang Road. This stall is located at the junction of Cintra Street and Kimberly Street. Other than there, I slove the one at the food court opposite Peng Hua High School in Pulau Tikus as well. :) as well the one opposite the police station in Pulau Tikus. :)
