An appetising dish of fried rice noodles and various ingredients slicked in a thick and sweet dark sauce, Char Kway Teow is a hawker centre favourite and a must-try on any food lover's itinerary. Cap your visit to Chinatown with a meal at this stall in Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, revered for its rendition of Char Kway Teow ($3). Expect a mix of flat rice noodles and yellow noodles, tossed in the above-mentioned sauce, eggs, bean sprouts, cockles and lard (trust us, it's worth the cholesterol), and fried over an open flame till smoky (what locals term 'wok hei'). The key to a good plate of char kway teow lies in the cooking technique and an expert management of heat, which the cook here has nailed down pat. The result here is a faultless plate of slippery, saucy and eggy deliciousness.
