Char Kueh Teow Section 17

I seldom order Char Kueh Teow in KL/PJ because almost all of them are really no good at all, even though most claim they are from Penang :D. After a lot of googling, I finally found a place that most food bloggers seem to recommend.

So I made it there yesterday.

It has all the essential ingredients of a good char kueh teow: lap cheong (Chinese sausage), cockles, prawns; chives, bean sprouts, lards. Oh, Roberts speaks Penang Hokkien too!

However, I notice that there was no banana leaf in my plate. From what I saw in other blogger's photos, banana leaves were used.

Anyway, I find it just okay. A bit too dry (probably not enough oil?) and not enough wok hei. Still good enough to satisfy my craving whenever I feel like having a plate of  CKT. The other place I recommend is near Taman Metropolitan Batu, near Jalan Ipoh. The location is here. I will go there again and do a more post on this one.

Edit: i have since tried more CKTs from quite a few outlets and the one I like the best is this one.

The serving was quite small so I ordered a bowl of asam laksa. It was not too bad.
