Coming to Singapore´s fried Kway Teow, Hill Street Chair Kway Teow is often the first name to pop up in people´s mind. This food stall made its fame since it was located at Hall Street. These day, we can find this over 40-year-old fried kway teow stall at Bedok South Road Market&Food Center.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT SINGAPORE CHAR KWAY TEOW?
Some of the typical ingredients that make this delicious plate of “Heart Attack” are: Fish Cake, Bean Sprouts, Fresh Cockles, Eggs, Dark Soy Sauce, Sweet Sauce, Chinese Sausages and Spring Onions.
However, there´s also version of Char Kway Teow, reigning from the lands of Malasya. Their variation isn´t as sweet or as heavily flavoured as the Singaporean one, producing a cleaner flavor that even a quite number of locals ´refer.
The term CHAR KWAY TEOW is a transliteration of the Chinese Characters 炒粿條. The word KOÉ-TIAU means “ricecake strips” generally refers to flat rice noodles which are the usual ingredients in West Malasya and Singapore. In East Malasya, on the hand, actual sliced ricecake strips are used to make this dish.
