Penang Char Koay Teow
BY CK LAM
Penang Char Koay Teow has been selected as the No.1 Must Eat hawker food through an online poll on the VisitPenang website in 2009.
There are plenty of Char Koay Teow stall in Penang with each stall having their specialty sauce and ingredients. One of my regular places would be at Taman Emas coffee shop located directly opposite the Penang Chinese Girl’s High School on the busy Gottlieb Road.
The Char Koay Teow from this stall cost RM3 and comes with slices of Chinese Sausages, chives and a few medium size prawns. Fried till just right, not too oily, it tasted prefect with few drops of soy sauce.
The mixture of soy sauce and a bit of oyster sauce balanced perfectly, giving the noodles a very savory taste. Ah Leng also made it a point to throw in plenty of chives. Furthermore, the cockles were done just right…medium cooked and still a bit juicy. This CKT was very well done, the ingredients complimenting the noodles perfectly.
Prices at this stall ranges from the regular plate that goes for RM5 to those that cost RM9.50 with big prawns, mantis prawns and cockles fried with duck egg.
