Once in a while, I crave for some greasy goodness. Although I have my usual favourites when it comes to eating Char Kuey Teow, I wanted to try out this particular one after reading about it at Babe in the City - KL's blog.
You can't really miss this place as it's a corner shoplot which faces Radius International Hotel on Tingkat Tung Shin but is actually located on Jalan Rembia, one of the small roads off the main road. The shoplot is devoted to the char kuey teow stall which also sells popiah. The place is run by a husband and wife team who both have their own individual woks to fry up your request.
Was it good? I thought it was above average but felt that it still did not hit the right spot for me as it didn't have the "wok hei" flavour I liked. Not sure why it didn't have that since there wasn't that many customers when I ordered my char kuey teow. Sometimes certain char kuey teow sellers don't have the time to fry it nicely especially during peak times hence quality is compromised. Although the char kuey teow here is a bit more greasy than what I like, I did like their cockles which were extremely fresh. Another gripe I have about this place was they did not serve any kopi-o to get rid of the greasy aftertaste but seemed to favour longan (or lor han kor) and barley for drinks.
