I make it a habit to try to start most working days with a good breakfast, and this is achieved by riding to work, which allows me to have quite a bit of freedom in choosing breakfast spots before heading to the office in the morning. See, when you’re stuck in the traffic, I’m having my noms, life’s good.

I was chatting with one of my colleagues just the other day and he mentioned that one of his favorite kopitiam around PJ where his old folks reside was Golden Kim Wah at Damansara Kim. The very next day, I made the slight de-tour and stop by to grab one of his favorite dishes from the place – Robert’s Char Kuih Teow.

I made the order like how I usually do for CKT – in classic beautiful Penang Hokkien, and to my delight, Mr. Robert answered in the very same dialect, which is always good news for a place that offers Penang dishes.

The RM 6 plate of char kuih teow from Robert was indeed up to expectation. Good amount of “wok hei” with those tiny charred bits, properly moist and yet not too wet, it also comes with prawns, lap cheong, bean sprouts, chives, and even a few bits of lard.

I’m putting this down as one of the few char kuih teow places worth eating in Klang Valley.

    Was it the ‘original’ Robert who answered you back in Hokkien? ;D I had Robert’s CKT elsewhere and it was disappointing. I guess I need to try one fried by the ‘real’ Robert himself. You should post a photo of him for us to see….haha! ūüėÄ

    I think is just Ma Ma Tei. In fact, the CKT in another corner nale Wan Shoon is much better.
