翠绿Fried Kway Teow (Beach Road Hawker)


Was a little hungry after my performance at Jurong Point on Sat so I was driving along Beach Road then I turned into the place to check out some good food. I know the claypot rice is famous there but they were not ready yet. So I was on the upper level and walking around and found this pretty famous char kway teow place. I know I’m not suppose to feature famous ones but they are affordable and no pork/lard for my muslim friends!

This stall at #01-91 near the middle staircase, needs no introduction. Too many features… too many rules hanging in front of their stall… Self-service lah, no extra plate lah, no extra chopsticks and spoon lah, extra cockles how much lah, etc… Hence the whole bloody stall front is crowded with a lot of reading crap while you wait in the queue…

I was there at about 4pm hence during that time not many people so I was next in the queue. I sat right in front of the stall as you can see from this pic.

See all the signs of the stall...

So I ordered my $4 plate it came after a 5 mins wait. Their signage claim that they use superior stock to fry their kway teow… hence I have to try it. When my plate of char kway teow was ready, I was asked to stand up and walked over to the stall to pick it up myself even though there were no one else in the queue… for this, I’ll discount the stall a lot on their rating.

Veg on the char kway teow... like the one in Pasir Panjang

Rating: 4/5 (Would have been 4.5 cos of their poor attitude. Too famous perhaps?)

Taste: Quite good. Not too sweet. Cockles were fresh. Kway Teow was tender and nice. Somehow without pork lard, the taste is not as fragrant as it should be. Will try to feature the other one at Pasir Panjang… I believe that’s original.

Portion: Not very big plate for $4. Sad. After that you might have to order the Goreng Pisang Raja beside it… it’s very nice. 🙂

Price: $3 or $4.

RTE: Maybe if I have nothing else to eat at Beach Road Hawker Centre.
