    By far one of the best char kway teow in Penang using pork lard and charcoal fire. Come before 3pm if you don't want to wait an hour for a plate or for a table. Uncle cooks by the road side!

    Still the best Penang CKT. Strong wok hei, flavorful, and best of all, the correct ratio of lapcheong (Chinese sausage) to cut through the oil and saltiness. Taste tested against Tiger and Lrg Selamat

    Be prepared to wait about 30mins or so for your order. It's well worth it when you try it tho. You can wait at the kafe and order a minuman while you wait & they'll serve your order of Char Koay Teow!

    I cant deny this uncle really fry good CKT. Secret ingredient is the pork lard and of caz the charcoal fire. Bear in mind that the CKT indeed very oily and slightly wet.

    Super nice charcoal char kuay teow by the roadside. The char kuay teow has a nice fragrance of lard seasonings, I waited for around 25mins for this kuay teow and it's worth waiting for! :)

    Worth the 45 mins to 1 hour wait. The old uncle will be fanning and frying each plate while his son will be taking and distributing orders, eat in or take out. Charcoal powered ckt!

    Yummy charcoal fried kway teow and the uncle uses pork lard oil to fry 😋 Better to take away cos the plates and chopsticks for dine in are not thoroughly washed.

    Char kuey teow has a moist texture towards it, but still one of the best. Personally I'd give it an 8/10.

    Comparing with Lrg Selamat CKT, this is more oily, more spicy, cheaper, and lacking of a special aroma taste. Number 2 CKT in Penang for me. -Penang Kia Food Critique-

    Best Non-Premium CHAR KOAY TEOW in Penang. They don't put fancy ingredients, but just a simple plate of heavenly Char Koay Teow. Do expect long waiting time up to 1 hour. Theirs worth the wait!

    Waited about 45 mins for this plate of CKT. Was good but in my opinion, not worth the wait. Head on over to Ah Leng CKT for good & fast CKT.
  • Edwin Y.
    Edwin YenJune 17, 2016
    IMHO this is the best CKT of all. The average 40minutes waiting should proof the point.

    Best if you want cheap Char Koay Teow. Not the best as there's Ah Leng who's the best.
