炒果条 Fried Kway Teow @ Amoy Street Food Centre


Amoy Street Food Centre is a great place to grab lunch if you work nearby in the CBD area. It is a two-storey food center that has every kind of local food imaginable.

If you do a search on what's recommended here, the Char Kway Teow is bound to turn up in the results. char koay teow

Char Kway Teow, or Fried Kway Teow is a flat rice noodle dish fried with eggs, bean sprouts, cockles, and lup cheong (chinese sausage).

This particular Fried Kway Teow stall at Amoy Street Food Centre serves one of the better ones around. Well, not out of this world good but good enough.

Afterall, uncle has been frying kway teow for the last 50 odd years when he first operated from a push cart at Boon Tat Street in the 1960s. If his kway teow is not good, his business could not have lasted till now.

I ordered the basic $3 plate which came with a lot of crunchy taugeh (bean sprouts).

I took a deep breathe and the aroma is simply irresistible!

The kway teow is both savory and sweet (without being too sweet with the kecap manis). 

As for the texture, it is firm and not mushy. Some people like their kway teow dry while some like it wetter. I find the kway teow moist but not too wet.

The cockles were also fresh and plentiful; I have lost count how many there were but it's a joy biting into the cockles and feel the juicy shellfish bursting in my mouth.

At the end of the meal, I did not have that greasy feeling or jelat-ness at all.

The stall is not hard to find with its colorful signboard bearing the generic name "炒果条" right on the first floor at the entrance of the food centre.

Give it a try and you will not be disappointed!
