Siam Road Char Koay Teow stall already has its name on its own. It was our first attempt eventhough i’m a Penangite. For those not familiar to Penang, is near Anson Road and located next to Stacks Burger previously (they too have moved, click to find out their latest location). It is really hard to find a parking spot, and Siam Road Char Koay Teow lies at the corner of the junction on Siam Road. Thankfully despite rain or shine, the shop opposite the stall is open for dine-in, those are where all the hidden queue is located. I was conned thinking after the 4 people in front of me, it would be my turn!. Another reason to stop by, they don’t crazily hike up the price for a plate of Char Koay Teow. For small size, they charge RM4 and big size, RM5.50. Good things don’t come by easy, so sit back, relax and wait patiently for your koay teow to come!
Char Koay Teow (RM4 (S) and RM5.50 (B))
In our humble opinion, is not the best but is great. What makes this Char Koay Teow unique is that uncle uses the charcoal flames to keep the wok heated for every plate of our fried koay teow. While frying, he will keep adding the charcoal to keep the flames going. He didn’t just stop there, his hands are always busy, first the noodle, then the prawns, cockles, chinese sausage (lap cheong), bean sprouts, and finally the eggs with some dark & light soy sauce to add flavour. To spicy is up, you can ask for some chilli paste to be added. Lots of lard might be another reason why the long queue. (Some say, usually the unhealthy stuff is the yummy stuff) . Slightly too greasy for our liking upon served. Nevertheless, we still gobble everything down our throats in 5 mins after the 1 hour wait long. Some of the koay teow was slight burnt which makes the whole plate yummier
