Food Review: Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow
(located in Tiong Bahru Market, Level 2)
Fried Kway Teow
Price: $3/$4 (pictured $4)
Visited Tiong Bahru Market for breakfast with the kids and decided to go for a few local delicacies.
Fried Kway Teow is one of the chosen dish and this stall was famed for their length of operations (many years) . Reviews are mixed but I think it's still good to have a try to make my own judgement.
First, the fried kway teow seems to be lighter in colour compared with the usual fried kway teow that you get in other places. The colour is very much like Apollo Fried Kway Teow but it's not soggy or wet though.
The usual ingredients were used like eggs, fish cake slices, cockles, chinese sauage and the mixed noodles.
Had my first taste and immediately I know it's really different from other stalls. It's definitely salty in nature instead of sweet which the colour sort of gave a hint. The noodles are cooked well and the dish has a pretty smokey and wok hei flavour which brings out the total flavour.
However, something unami is missing from the dish. In other normal fried kway teow, you only get sweetness and the usual stir fried flavour. Here is different. While it's salty but it's cooked very well with wok hei etc, but it doesn't have the X-factor that attract me to it like Hill Street or Apollo. So I have to lower my points a little for this.
I think this plate of fried kway teow should appeal to older folks since it's been around for a while as I have seen many old folks buying from them and I'm sure there is something unique about it. Please give it a try to form your own verdict for this.
