This is the fried koay teow (flat rice noodles) which we enjoyed at Lorong Selamat in Penang. There are 3 stalls here. The most famous was too crowded even at 3pm, so we had this hawker's fried koay teow, which was not bad. As you can see frying koay teow is not an easy job. Imagine doing this in the hot sun at 33 degrees C with the wok fire. Did you notice his eye gear, looks like some kind of goggles. It was RM$6.50/S$3.00 a plate and it was quite good. Koay teow fried with eggs, chinese sausage, bean sprouts, chives, cockles, garlic and light soya sauce. Yummy, deep fried lard pieces thrown in, was the clincher. I prefer this to char koay teow in Singapore, which is not as dry and fried with dark sweet soya sauce. Sometimes, you just miss food you grew up eating.
