A couple weeks ago, in the post on char kueh teow at New Yee Sang, Kelana Jaya, a reader by the handler gracieq left a comment that she usually gets her CKT fix at a mamak restaurant near Wisma FAM. That made me very curious, at a mamak restaurant? Char Kueh Teow? Is it even possible?

Glorious char kueh teow

CuriosityΒ got the better of me, a few days ago I did a bit of research and found that boolicious from masak-masak gave very good review about this CKT stall at Restaurant Jamal Mohamed. If it’s good enough for boo, it is good enough for me.

I took my camera and went hunting alone for this impossible restaurant. I consulted google map, it’s actually less than 5 mins away from where I stay, how could I have missed it all these while?

Restaurant Jamal Mohamed with Penang Char Kueh Teow by fat aunty

Unlike most mamak outfits where the owners run everything, restaurant Jamal Mohamed is set up much like most Chinese kopitiam. There are at least half a dozen stalls operated by individual owners.

Sure enough I found what I was looking for. A char kueh teow stall operated by the famous “Fat Aunty”, with a label that simply states “Penang”

Despite the brisk business, I was still a bit skeptical. This is a mamak restaurant after all.Β My fingers started to twitch, what if this was all a big mistake?

Then the Char Kueh Teow came. It looked unassuming. I picked up the chopsticks and carefully delivered a small portion into my mouth.

Noms.. noms.. noms…..

Oh boy, the CKT had plenty of umph, it was wet, it was flavorful, and it had everything (sans the super huge prawns only found in Penang) a CKT suppose to have. It was very delicious. I was over the moon.

The best RM4 spent in 2010.

After my meal, I chatted up with the Fat Aunty for a bit. I found out that like me, she hailed from Penang. We conversed in Hokkien, at the restaurant with Indian, Chinese, Malay, and more enjoying their lunch in a hot afternoon. It felt good, I was happy, this is truly Malaysia.

    this is THE best place to get ur HALAL char kueh teow…

    damn famous wan, been there for like 15 years at least! used to be at the other corner, until the landlords decided to increase rent like 3 folds cos they see the business superpacked!

    Go try this place but make sure u r willing to wait… at some random times, i’ve seen ppl come n order 100 packs or 200 packs tapao before…

  2. ericyong77,
    I agree, damn good!

  30. hi,

    your blog is done to perfection – writing, pictures, layouts…but i can’t understand why you don’t improve on ur maps! sorry but i just reeeeally can’t figure out where to go from ur doodles; it’s so vague and confusing! you could just post up a google map page for directions at the bottom, it’ll definitely help this site!

  31. I think ive been visiting this stall for a good 20 years or so.. Her business has ALWAYS been crazy ever since i was a kid. I used to live just across the road from where her old stall use to be.. Ah this brings back memories and ill go back there again soon..

  32. eiling,
    hahaha, chill, don’t need to eat everyday. πŸ˜›

    πŸ˜› who knows

    hehe thanks thanks, but I’ll keep the map as is, GPS location is given yaa, just pop over to google map and paste that in. πŸ˜€

    waaa 20 yrs is a long time!

  33. Online Boutique
