One of the old venerable hawker centres in Singapore has the arguably one of the best Char Kway Teows in Singapore. Guan Kee always has a long queue, which starts even before the stall opens, which is usually around 11am in the morning. Be prepared to wait!
And on one trip, I decided to wait and give it a try. I had to know what it was all about.
So I started to queue. This was at 11:15am. Take a look at the queue!
25 minutes later, I am almost at the front of the queue!
5 minutes later, only one uncle in front of me!
My turn! The uncle working the wok has been doing this for 30 years!
And my finished platter! 35 minutes to wait for a $3 plate of Char Kway Teow. Was it worth it?
It is not as greasy as I thought it would be. The noodles and kway teow were nice a soft, infused with the flavors. The taste was not too sweet, but just nice. The wok hei on it also penetrated and tastes good.
The final verdict – one of the top 5 Char Kway Teows in Singapore. Right up there with Hill Street, Eunos MRT, Lucky at Old Airport Road and Zion Road in my opinion.
