When you walk past Amoy Street Food Centre Stall on the ground level, you may notice this “Fried Kway Teow” stall located at the corner, opposite the ATM.
This Char Kway Teow stall with striking blue signboard “炒粿條” does not have a special name, so it has been called the “Nameless Fried Kway Teow” before.
When we talk about famous Char Kway Teow in Singapore, some of the usual popular ones include Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee (Hong Lim Food Centre), No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow (Zion Road Food Centre), Hill Street Fried Kway Teow (Bedok South Food Centre), 91 Fried Kway Teow Mee (Golden Mile Food Centre), Lao Fu Zi Fried Kway Teow (Old Airport Road Food Centre), and Guan Kee Fried Kway Teow (Ghim Moh Food Centre).
(My personal favourite is Hai Kee Teochew Cha Kuay Teow at Telok Blangah Crescent.
So this stall which originated from Boon Tat Street during the 1960s is still considered slightly under-the-radar, though it has good support among regulars in the CBD.
You could tell Uncle has loads of experience frying for many years.
Plus point is that the stall starts operating at early hours of 9:30am, so if you have breakfast cravings for Char Kway Teow, you know where to head to.
The regular serving size of Char Kway Teow costs $4 or $5 (increased from previous $3 or $4), and was quite filling with some Chinese sausages, cockles and beansprouts.
This version was lighter in colour than the usual, probably because uncle used less of the dark sweet sauce so it did have those deep, intense flavours. It was not too greasy comparatively, so could give customers the impression this is a ‘healthier’ version.
The rice noodles were moist enough but not too wet, but one would wish for more wok-hei.
If you love your see hum, you would be in luck as there were quite a number added in my plate.
