At Hong Lim Food Centre

Operated by Ng Chin Chye and his wife for over 2 decades, this legendary stall has a history stretching back to 1939, and still attracts queues of up to 30 minutes.
Ng learnt the trade by watching his father and practising. To prepare for each day, up to 18kg of pork lard is deep-fried, and his blend of signature sauce is made with dark sweet soy and fish sauce.
Frying in batches of 20 plates each time takes great strength and skill, and his mastery of fire control ensures the noodles are evenly cooked with smoky wok hei / breath of the wok.
His version tends towards the wet and sweet side, with lots of gooey beaten egg, crisp bean sprouts, crunchy pork lard, bouncy fish cake, and plump blood cockles, combining for robust smoky sweet savoury salty eggy flavours.

The fried kway teow still as good as last visit , flavourful, not overly sweet, moist and not dry, not too garlicky, all balanced with moderate wok hei.
Served with pork lard and cockles.

My ah gong's favourite plate of char kway teow is also my father's favourite of char kway teow, and is needless to say my personal favourite plate of char kway teow.

My first plate of this CKT was at the ground floor of a now demolished block of flats behind Outram Park MRT Station and across the road from SGH, and we have followed them wherever they shifted to. It used to cost $2 per plate and now costs $4 per plate but the taste of the wet gooey and umami laden plate of CKT remains consistently golden.

One of the best CKT I had.

Available at $4/$5/$6 portion

Seeing the long snaking queue, I decided to have the $5 portion with additional egg, to make me wait worthwhile.

The queue ended up about 35mins long, this is around 11am on a weekday.

This is really good! Definitely one of the better ones I had
