Outram Char Kway Teow

This stall does not need any introduction.....Known by all char kway teow enthusiasts,if you have not eaten,surely you would have heard about "Outram Char Kway"......

I have had this CKT on numerous occasion.There are 2 version of the char kway teow.The white and the normal supposedly to be the black version.I really can't see much of a difference at a glace .

I still remember the first time I had this.This char kway teow  certainly does not score on looks.

Looking quite messy,looks like it has been over cooked,most of the time,not the usual darkish brown but a kind of a brownish pale colour for both the version.The looks certainly can be very deceiving.It's always a wonder,with a ton of char teow teow to stir and blend in the wok.It still has a full nice wok hei,moist,fully cooked CKT..

The white version.

The normal version.

At times there are particularly no difference in the looks in either version.But there is quite a difference in taste.For me the white version seem to be more balance and more tastier,than the normal black version which tends to slightly a bit sweeter than the white version.
If you have not tried the white version,give try to see the difference. But don't expect to see a white ckt.

Taste wise both the version certainly beats alot of CKT around.And understandably why some consider this to be the best.
