Best Char Kuey Teow in PJ

Written by Updated ago

The epitome of hawker food, char kuey teow is one of the best if not the best Malaysian hawker dish. With its Malaysian roots, char kuey teow is a must-have for any tourists or outsiders. Although the dish has been criticized by health advocates as being unhealthy due to its high content in saturated fat, it was actually created as a cheap source of energy for laborers whom were poor. The dish itself speaks for Malaysia's long history. Thus, we obviously had to find the best ones in PJ!

    Yet again it is O & S Restaurant! Located at Taman Paramount, O & S is undoubtedly a pioneer in the hawker food scene. While we love this place, we certainly cannot say the same for the unending crowds here... But hey, good food requires patience and sacrifice, right? One of the main reasons for the constant swarm of patrons is due to one specific stall... The Penang hawker stall. Yep - besides assam laksa and har mee, char kuey teow is a common favourite here. Some even claim that the Penang food here is actually BETTER than those in Penang! Whattt?

    Tips

    Best time to visit is mid-mornings.

    Frankie Char Koay TeowNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Frankie Char Koay Teow can be found in Restoran 8888 in Mutiara Damansara. Ask around the area and everyone will tell you that he is the 'guy'! Now, there are many variants to char kuey teow, and Frankie's version comes with duck eggs instead of traditionally used chicken eggs. The noodles are also slightly lighter in color, but still possess a pretty good level of smokiness, as well as flavour. It is also loose, which makes eating it really easy. The additional cockles on the side are somewhat bloody, but not over spilled. In short, Frankie offers one of the best Penang char kuey teow in the area.

    Sun Hin Loong RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Sun Hin Loong Restaurant is one of the most popular hawker center in the whole of PJ, maybe because it's located in SS2 and has been around for quite some time. Here, you can find all that you need ranging from basic chicken rice to economy rice and egg tarts to char kuey teow. It is also a great place for lunch, especially for office workers. Having said that, you might have to bare with the horrendous parking. The char kuey teow is like many others, good flavour, a nice heap of smokiness, perfectly balanced texture and a fairly hefty price to pay. But still, it's pretty good. 

    Tips

    Cash only.

    As the name suggest, Heritage Village is another great restaurant to indulge yourself in traditional Malaysian cuisine. You can find the best of everything, from chicken rice to curry laksa, and lam mee to char kuey teow. Most of what is available are also made really pretty, presented nicely on a plate as well as priced rather steeply. As for the char kuey teow, you are looking at one that is cooked to be a little smokier than others. Though that normally translate to a dish being a little more salty - it's still bearable. The excess use of eggs is nice, as well as the generous amount of bean sprouts and fish cakes.

    Tips

    Set meals available.

    Things to expect

    A cozy place but with rather small seats and tables.

    Best with

    3 Layer Tea or Soya Cincau.

    Price

    RM10.00 to RM30.00
