Back in 2007 I wrote a blog post about this char kueh teow place in PJ State, it was the best char kueh teow I’ve in Klang Valley.

A couple years after that blog post, the kopitiam, along with the char kueh teow stall closed down. It was a tragedy, I was trying to look for a replacement go-to char kueh teow since then, a few other places came close, but none gave me that same “wok hei” in a plate of CKT as this stall

Still the best CKT in Klang Valley for me

Fortunately, the very same CKT is now back in PJ State, this time operating in the popular kopitiam next to UOB bank (the kopitiam also has very good roti bakar, seafood porridge, and braised duck at night).

One of my all time favorite char Kuih teow in klang valley, the little stall at the back of the popular Kam Heong kopitiam at PJ state. Operator is the same old penang dude from all those years ago. #kyeats #breakfast #kopitiam #hawker #charkuihteow #nonhalal #instavideo

I know it’s the same stall cos I can remember the operator, and interestingly enough he still recognizes me as fellow Penangites who moved to KL. He started operating CKT in this new location after an (I’m guessing unsuccessful) venture into operating a kopitiam.

I'm so glad this CKT man is back

The CKT itself is still just as good as I remember. It’s oily, spicy, and comes with all the ingredients you’d expect in a plate of proper CKT – cockles, prawns, Chinese sausage, bean sprouts, and the slightly wider version of kueh teow that is used here.

If you are looking for a plate of good char kueh teow, look no further than this plate of goodness at RM 4. 😀

  14. 🙁 can see but cant eat 😥 😥 😥

  15. Great. Been hunting for a reli good CKT in Klang Valley too. The Sect 17 and Kelana Jaya ones are not up to par, though Paramount’s O&S is considerably addictive. Will try this the next round.

  16. Hi, anyone know where had the CKT stall that used to be at brickfield opposite YMCA (now Old Town) move to?

  17. wah this is good news!

  18. May I know the business hour for this store?

  19. Thanks for the recommendation. But bfast & lunch hard to stop by. I also wish to know where the brickfields aunty char kueh teow (opposite YMCA) moved to. Any nice ckt that starts at night?

    • Alvin: ah, I am not familiar with the brickfield CKT, for at night I heard the one at PJ old town is good (opposite Heng Kee bah kut teh)

      • Thks! I’ve been around there but never try the CKT.
        I just came back from Jipun CKT at Banting. Operated for 3 generations now. It didn’t suit my taste though.
        My best ckt stalls now in Seremban where they add lots of black sauce. One in front of Proton showroom & another in front of a temple. Both only open at night.

      • vr2turbo

        PJ old town CKT not bad. At night operates opposite Heng Kee BKT. In the morning this husband and wife team operates at the coffee shop opposite the wet market in PJ Old Town.

  20. Hi,

    Just had the CKT at PJ state. I believe there is a CKT stall you need to visit to compare.

    Kuchai Lama Food Court
    Jalan Kelang Lama

    The guy’s name is ah Hong and is not from Penang. However, his sifu is from Penang. He serves only dinner so do give it a go.

    • alvin: oo, that’s interesting, dinner only ya? I’ll have to try one of these days.

  21. Thanks man….. i tot they closed for good….
