11 Best Char Kway Teow In Singapore That’s Worth The Heart Attack

24 August
Char Kway Teow Collage

Hawker delicacies are aplenty in Singapore, and perhaps one of the most popular local dishes is Char Kway Teow, and for a very good reason too. The combination of dark sweet sauce, pork lard and the fragrant and flavourful wok hei make this dish delightfully sinful yet satisfying.

Apart from the usual artery-clogging dish we all know and love, another variation is its Penang counterpart. It comes without sweet sauce and is considerably lighter in flavour yet just as delicious.

There are many styles, variations and interpretations of this iconic dish but we love them all just the same. Char Kway Teow is available in pretty much every hawker centre and food court nowadays, but here is our list of the 11 Best Char Kway Teow In Singapore.

The chilli is homemade and packs a punch alongside the savoury dish. The best part is, you can enjoy it with your Muslim friends as 786 Char Kway Teow is halal-certified!

FRIED KWAY TEOW. FRIED OYSTER


Just adjacent to Tiong Bahru Char Kway Teow is the humble Fried Kway Teow. Fried Oyster. The noodles are mildly spicy, with plenty of fish cake and vegetables to cut through the greasiness. Despite the seemingly small portion size, the flavour definitely makes up for that.

ISLAND PENANG KITCHEN


If the usual heart attack on a plate isn’t your thing, perhaps the cleaner yet equally flavourful Penang version might be right up your alley.

LAI HENG FRIED KWAY TEOW


Perhaps an unusual pairing of Otah and Kway Teow, this is definitely not to be overlooked. The noodles are moist and flavourful and served with a generous portion of eggs and cockles. The Otah is a must to add-on as the char from the Otah complements the Kway Teow very well. Even though it’s generally cooked with vegetable oil, feel free to request for pork lard instead.

OUTRAM PARK FRIED KWAY TEOW MEE


Their generous use of egg gives the noodles the signature wet and creamy dish the shop is known and loved for. Even with the big pieces of pork lard, the dish isn’t overly oily. It was also recently awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand, adding on to the already long queue but fear not, the queue moves much faster than expected.

Penang Bagus Char Kway Teow


PENANG BAGUS


The flat rice noodles are springy and chewy with plenty of wok hei. Just like the ones in Penang, their Char Kway Teow is as authentic as it gets. In fact, it’s not too oily and the prawns have a nice crunch to them. They also offer a special version including crab meat and salted egg for those who want to have it fancy.

Zion-Road-Char-Kway-Teow


NO.18 ZION ROAD CHAR KWAY TEOW


Their Char Kway Teow toes the line between sweet and savoury, without being overpoweringly sweet. The generous portion is filled with plenty of cockles, lap cheong and fishcakes, more enough to share around the table with your friends. As the chef cooks each plate individually, do head down earlier or expect a slightly longer waiting time.
