Good char kuih teow is harder to come by in KL than honest salesmen, but as with them salesmen, every once in a while you do find one that aren’t part of the rule.

I’m still looking for that elusive salesman, but for char kuih teow, there is the stall at Win Heng Seng kopitiam at Jalan Imbi.

If you recall from earlier post, this Win Heng Seng kopitiam is the very same one that also has the really awesome pork noodle.

So anyway, I had 3 pieces of yong tau foo (RM 2.40) as appetizer while waiting for the char kuih teow (which tends to be a bit busy). The yong tau foo actually turned out pretty good. It was the type without soup, but soaked in chili and sweet sauce and topped with sesame. Delightful.

Then of course, came the char kuih teow. The fatter type of flat noodle is used here, it had a good dose of “wok hei” going on. There were the usual beans spouts, blood cockles, those bits of “choi pou” (salted vege), and a couple smallish prawns you can’t exactly see.

While the prawns certainly did not impress, the taste of this char kuih teow was very good. So good that I don’t mind the lack of giant shrimps. It was a tad oily, a tad sinful, a tad salty, but exactly what a good plate char kuih teow should tastes like.

I am missing it already.

In another news, I recently bought a mountain bike in order to burn all those foods that try to find their way to stay around my waist. It’s a Taiwanese bicycle with Japanese parts built in Malaysia.

Got the bike off a nice Malay chap from Shah Alam who was kind enough to transport it all the way to my house. I’m now waiting for a phone mount so that I can record some rides with Endomondo. Cycled to futsal last week and well, I survived. 😀

In case you haven’t read about it, here’s a story of how I hit a car’s side view mirror with a bicycle back in my high school days

Discuss : KY eats – Char Kuih Teow at Win Heng Seng, Jalan Imbi

  1. I actually think the Jalan Alor char kueh tiaw is really good. There’s an auntie there right in the middle of the road who makes it. I don’t know if she’s still there but she was in 2003 (used to be a regular) and late last year too. I haven’t been to Jalan Alor since though.

  2. i hope they won’t mind if we ask to ‘tambah see hum.’ i like my CKT with more cockles than kuey teow 😀
