Kafe Heng Huat @ Lorong Selamat, Penang…what can I say, apart from…..just go and try for yourself

If heaven exists,  there will be a plate of char kway teow always waiting for me. Most of my Penang friends wouldn’t recommend this place because of its high pricing and bad, arrogant, grumpy service. I got to say, I haven’t experience this myself but it’s maybe because I don’t go very often. Char Kway Teow, which stands for “stir fried rice flat noodles” is big in Penang. Do not be confused, char kway teow or otherwise also known as Char Koay Teow, Fried Koay Teow, Char Kuih Teow, Fried Kway Teow noodles are all one and the same.

Now let’s get down to business: the food. The char kway teow  here are served with succulent plump juicy and crunchy prawns, fresh and big cockles, bean sprouts, chives and chunks of crispy pork lard. The tasty and relative moist kway teow was filled with smoky wok hei (loosely translated: “breath of the wok”) essence and fragrance from the usage of charcoal fire and pork lard and a testimony to a well-seasoned wok.

One may argue there are many other Char Kway Teow stalls which are better, cheaper and friendlier than this one. But there’s no doubt her Char Kway Teow is one of the best in Penang. Hey, I am hungry already just writing this! This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
