Popular dish at this food centre. Stir fried & mushy style. Not enough wok hei.

A different style of char kuay teow. This one is slightly on the wetter version with lots of garlic and a handful of chilli in it which brings the CKT to a different level. Highly recommended.

Here, the Kway Teow is drenched with a very intense garlicky eggy sauce. If you are a garlic fan, you will love this. They are also very generous with their ingredients. Lots of cockles, Lup Cheong and fishcake. Ever since Lavender Fatty Heng closed down, this is one of the last few stalls serving a wet version of this dish. With the Marine Parade Food Center closing for renovation at the end of the month for about a year, I hope they will be able to find a new home soon.

This pretty well-known stall's "char kway teow" is fried the opposite way to my preferred style. Which means it's wet, wet, wet.
Nevertheless, since there's garlic galore, I can appreciate it for what it is.


Rather than wait for the train fault for the NSL to be remedied
Noodles were too wet for my liking, insufficient wok hei, too sweet and most importantly, I told uncle no chili and he KB me saying I didn't tell him. Then he made another plate for me saying this time no chilli but WTFBBQ, there's still chilli!
Marina Parade hawker center, definitely not the cheapest hawker center but filled with vibrant food choices.


The first was on hokkien mee and the latest being char kway teow. If you haven't catch the videos, you can do a YouTube search for "Tiger Street Food - Char Kway Teow".

Close friends of mine will know that I love our hawker culture and would prefer dining in a hawker centre over some fancy cafe or restaurant any other day. Slowly but surely, the pioneer generation of hawkers will start to retire one day when no one decides to continue their legacy and we will lose an integral part of our identity. By then, it would be too late to savour these iconic dishes such as hokkien mee and char kway teow. It's time for us to show them our support and help preserve the heritage.

Pictured is a plate of Char Kway Teow ($3) from Apollo Fresh Cockle Fried Kway Teow, famous for their rendition of this dish that is fried wetter and more garlicky. Fans of cockles will be delighted to know that the masterchef will actually pour some of the blood into the wok during the frying process. A very unique version of this dish as it is sliding towards the sweeter side which might not appeal to all at first but will grow to appreciate it slowly. Not the prettiest of plates, but darn good food.
