Char Kuey Teow @ Lorong Selamat Char Kuey Teow, USJ 14, Subang Jaya


tiny portion for RM4.50

I'm slowly going through all those places to eat in USJ Subang Jaya, so if any of you have suggestions where to eat, do enlighten me! This particular stall had eluded me for quite some time, as I never could figure out where exactly it was. Luckily a quick google search led me to find a map leading the way here. Once I figured out Restaurant Meisek from the main road, I found this place easily.

Located in a corner coffeeshop, this stall is not in any way related to the famous char kuey teow stall in Penang. Instead the owners of this stall used to live on Lorong Selamat, hence the name. A couple run this stall with the help of their son. While the lady fries the kuey teow, the husband will be seperating each kuey teow strand or sprinkling pieces of fried lard on top of the finished plates of kuey teow.

Each portion is priced at RM4.50 - quite an expensive amount as the portion served is quite tiny but each bite yields a mouthful of ingredients - fat crunchy bean sprouts, tiny lard pieces, tiny lap cheong and egg.

Although I wouldn't rate the kuey teow here as the best in town (as it seems to lack that smoky "wok hei" aroma I love), it is still a pretty decent plate of lardy heaven to indulge in especially when you're down with work. For those with larger space in their tummies, I suggest you load up from the other stalls as you will definitely get hungry by 3pm after a small plate of these noodles. Be prepared to also wait, as the noodles can take up to 15 to 30 minutes depending on the lunch crowd and takeaway orders.

(Non Halal. Open from 7am to 2pm, closed on Sundays. To get here from the Elite Highway, exit the USJ highway exit, take a right at the first traffic light. Keep left and turn the first left. Go straight and at the second traffic light, make a U turn. Make a first left where there is a Petronas station, then another left. Drive straight down and Restoran Lam Hing Leong is at the right hand side, at the corner. A few coffeeshops are available here also.)

Hmmm... I think there's a going consensus that Lrg Selamat's CKT no longer lives up to its reputation. A shame though, coz your pix really suggests otherwise!

Most CKT are in small servings at RM4.00-4.50. What's the logic? The customer will be gone.

J2Kfm said...

such small serving. though the REAL lrg selamat's version also small small one. and big big on pricing.

USJ? there was this Thai food at a corner coffeshop. i forgot the name. the row of shop before the Shell station on the same road as Courts. it;s facing the other side,

Sorry to say, it doesn't really look like one. :)

Jason said...

*sigh* I don't really like to have CKT here because of the tiny portion but exorbitant price.

Penang Tua Pui said...

lucky the service is not the same like we had in Penang Lorong Selamat

mycookinghut said...

It's pretty expensive, you are right..

Julian Si said...

Yay no need to drive 4 hours now!! Hmm ... or is Section 17's Ah Huat Kopitiam "ROBERTS CHAR KUAY TEOW" better!!?

Shoot-out anyyone!!?

Hendrik said...

hey .... i was there at the real Lorong Selamat a fortnight ago.
But guess what I went to the wrong stall !!! The "wrong stall's" char kuey teow was very good though. Guess they must have their own quality there.

Was at the guy with alien shades rather than the popular auntie with big specs.

Sujan said...

Hmm... I like Char Kueh Teow too. Long time didn;t go to USJ Subang Jaya.
Got one very nice CKT near to Jalan Alor last time but now closed down oredi. :(

Thanks,
