Frying kuay teow isn’t brain surgery but getting it right is an art. Not everyone can make good fried kuay teow so a place that serves such a dish is a gem to me.
This place in Cheras serves a pretty mean plate of “kon chau hor fun”, loosely translated as dry fried kuay teow in English. rif took me here to try the noodles after he learnt about this place from a colleague, and we were not disappointed.
Manned by an uncle and his wife, the uncle does the frying while the wife takes care of the order. We asked for a plate for 2 pax and portion was generous. For RM9, the noodles were large enough to feed three.
I’ve never eaten fried kuay teow like this before but it was really delicious. The noodles were cooked with pork slivers, beansprouts, prawns and onions, and it boasted plenty of wok hei with a touch of sweet from the onions. You can also eat it with some chilli padi and soy sauce for more oomph, but I liked the kuay teow just the way it came.
The wantan mee stall was pretty popular as well, so I ordered a small plate (RM4.50) to try. Texture-wise, the egg noodles were ‘snappy’ and al dente, but I found the char siew dry and stringy. The fried sui kow (additional RM1) was however, pretty good and generously filled with ingredients.
If you’re planning to pay this place a visit, it helps that you’re dressed casually as it gets pretty humid when the crowd packs in.
