Dong Li Char Kway Teow

A  Cross between Char Kway Teow & Penang Kway Teow.

Was having mutton soup when a guy passed by us from the stall just opposite with a plate of char kway teow.Somehow it didn't quite look like a normal char kway teow.After  finishing our soup we went and order a plate of Char kway teow.

The char kway teow looked liked it took a beating in the wok, a kind of messy,dry,could see slight burned chars on the noodles and on the other ingredients.It really didn't look that appetizing,maybe I was looking for a normal wet looking char kway teow.

Ingredients were quite impressive,there were ample ingredients of prawns,sliced fish cakes,sliced chinese sauages and hums(cockles).A quick stir the inner portion didn't look too bad.
 

A bite,a taste of it,oh my,it didn't taste as bad as I thought it would.In fact,it had a very good wok wei(didn't taste like any burned chars),was quite unique tasting,more like a cross between Penang Char kway teow and like our local version .Maybe more like a,combination of two together in one char kway teow.It was nice,in fact after a few mouthful,I could get the feel of the taste very well,it was certainly tasting better and tasting uniquely  good. I really did enjoyed it.Don't mind having one for the road again.

This is a one man show.He is quite old.He takes his time to do the frying to give very good wok hei.So,service can be very slow.
Once I saw him close the stall,for awhile during peak hours,after a last person order,to rest and reopen again after sometime.Maybe he was very tired,and he looked very tired.Please be patience.
