Cockles And Noodles – Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee
There are several more places I have heard and would like to visit over the next few weeks or months. As mentioned, CKT is not the healthiest of food so I would like to pace myself in this adventure of finding the best of the lesser known. I have also not tasted the well known ones and so maybe it’s time I do in order to have better perpspective. ~ Sam Han
When Benny took me to eat curry bee hoon at Hong Lim Food Centre, he told me to look behind at a stall selling Char Kway Teow (CKT) which many locals raved about and so despite a bowl of chicken noodles already in my tummy, I had to try this CKT. Anyway, I had said in my previous post on Singapore Char Kway Teow that I would like to try the well known ones and this stall is one of the top 5. It even ranked as number one in 2011. I had requested some raw cockles to be added on top of those already fried into the rice noodles.
While there was constant flow of patrons, this morning’s queue was moving quite fast. Some comments from my facebookers said I was there earlier than the lunch crowd (12nn – 2pm) and so that accounted for the short wait – I was one person behind the queue. I wouldn’t be going to Hong Lim FC again just for this CKT like I would for Hougang’s even though it’s much further from my house. So there you go Simon Tong, I agree with you – this stall did not amaze me, too. Both Benny and I did not finished our CKT even though I am not one to waste food so that spoke a lot.
I have yet to go to Beach Road’s FC where I heard a different version is cooking with lots of vegetables and silver baits used. I’ll have an appointment with that stall soon.
