Char Kuey Teow Land @ Penang

The land of the Char Kuey Teow.

Where people ask, what noodle you want? We only got kuey teow. I mean what else do you expect?

A place where noodles are fried with duck egg so you can die faster but live a fuller experience when digging into that plate of noodles.

Alas i only had a short trip to the land of CKT and filled up 2 meals.

Oh how i wish we can get duck egg and big fat prawns in our CKT (only if it is nicely fried, of course).


CKT @ Ping Hooi Coffeeshop
At the corner of Lebuh Carnavon & Lebuh Melayu
Penang

Fried to perfection and would so love to have another plate at this very moment.


CKT @ Ah Leng, Kafe Khoon Hiang, Jalan Dato Kramat, opposite ex Federal cinema

Unfortunately, this one was quite a disappointment. The noodles were slightly on the wet side, tasted tomato sauce in there with the upside of plenty of ingredients i.e. duck egg, mantis prawns, prawns, etc. Not to mention that i had to part a good RM9.50 for the above plate.

Have a good Monday guys!

Try the one in Batu Lancang market (open till evening). The corner one with duck eggs. That's my favourite version!

Else.. go to Macalister Road..one of the old shop (forgot the name). They only have 2 stalls - CKT & Hokien Mee.. both are great - sold by old folks. So, quality guaranteed! Hehe..

Owh...I so miss Penang!!!
