Char Kway Teow, the Singaporean favourite and also an iconic food of Singapore.
It’s known all over the world as a Singaporean delicacy and is also probably the most unhealthy food on the planet.
But since when did we let our health concerns interfere with our search for good food? Just joking. Go and run 10km after eating your Char Kway Teow.
Here are 7 different CKT you can find in Singapore.
1. The Classic
The taste that we are so familiar with, this is the traditional kind of Char Kway Teow, with its full 100% flavor and black like tar with fat juicy hum.
Where: No.18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow Stall 17, Zion Road Riverside Food Centre, 70 Zion Road, 247792
2. Penang Char Kway Teow
No dark sauce, no yellow noodles. Dryer, spicier, not necessarily better but certainly different! A fresh taste to spice up your senses!
Where: Malaysia Boleh
3. Penang Inspired Seafood Kway Teow
Described by hungrygowhere to be the marriage between the Singaporean Kway Teow and the Penang one, Dong Ji’s fried kway teow is not as wet or sweet as Singapore-style kway teow, but darker than Penang-style kway teow. And definitely worth a try!
Just take note that they have very short opening hours: 10 am to 2 pm daily.
Where: Dong Ji #01-138, Old Airport Road Food Centre, 51 Old Airport Road, 390051
4. Pad Thai Style Kway Teow
Love Thai food? How about a fusion that sounds so much better than Mamee’s Hainanese Chicken Rice?
The Kway Teow we all love so much, with a little Pad Thai twist to it.
Where: Day Night Fried Kway Teow @ Bukit Merah Central #02-29, Bukit Merah Central Food Centre, 163 Bukit Merah Central, 150163
5. Green Kway Teow
Made to be much, much healthier than the traditional ones, this Kway Teow owned the challenge to make food healthier without compromising the taste.
The char kway teow here is cooked without pork or lard, meaning no lard oil, lard cubes, or lup cheong in the dish.
In a way, it’s like having the cake and eat it too. Just replace the cake with kway teow.
Similar to #3, this stall only opens for a short while from 10 am to 2.30 pm.
Where: 91 Fried Kway Teow #01-91, Golden Mile Food Centre, 505 Beach Road, 199583
6. Halal Fried Kway Teow
For Halal friends who yearn to have a taste of the Singaporean delicacy, this stall is the answer. Made to taste like the original without the pork and lard!
Where: Green Sky Fried Kway Teow #01-14, Bedok Food Centre, 1 Bedok Road, 469572
7. Teochew Fried Kway Teow
Think less dark sauce, more egg and dried radish (chai poh).
This version of Char Kway Teow with chai poh is probably the predecessor of Singapore-style char kway teow.
Where: Chao Shan Cuisine #01-01, Grand Building, 17 Phillip Street, 048695
