Sinfully awesome and famous Hong Lim char kway teow is definitely one everyone must try. If you are thinking where to get tasty good char kway teow, read on this food review to find out more.
One of the more popular stalls at Hong Lim, Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee commands a snakey queue that stretches over 20 to even 30 pax during a weekday lunch crowd.
We got our fix after queuing for about 20minutes. The friendly auntie would go down the queue and take orders in advance. So know what you want when you start queuing.
As for their char kway teow, it stands head and shoulders with some of the best char kway teow you can find in Singapore, if not the best. ^^
Every bite emits strong aromatic indulgence of wok hey, infused with fragrant pork lard. Yet with every bite, we didn’t feel overtly greasy in the mouth. Kway teow and noodles blended seamlessly with the subtle crunch of beansprouts, delightful crunch of deep fried pork lard bits, not too huge nor tiny. Fried eggs emulsified into every crevasses, intensifying the experience.
Not too sweet, not overtly salty, the balance of taste was impeccable. There was a pleasant sheen on every strain of noodles, displaying its smoothness, and again, not overtly greasy and perfect caramelization of every ingredient. Finally, cockles were somewhat small, but ample in quantity.
At $4 an order, it was a plate of irresistible Hong Lim char kway teow that was appetite stimulating, that displays tremendous mastery and elegance.
