Char Kway Teow is a local favourite—essentially rice noodles tossed with fishcakes, Chinese sausages, prawns, cockles, eggs and vegetables in a sweet and savoury sauce, it is no wonder why this dish is one of Singaporeans’ favourites. As such, there is no lack of Char Kway Teow stalls in Singapore—look around and it would be easy to spot a stall or two serving this delight.
Many who frequent Old Airport Road Food Centre would have been to Lao Fu Zi—another popular Fried Kway Teow stall at this food centre—but for something slightly different yet undeniably delectable, try out Dong Ji Fried Kway Teow.
Every plate of char kway teow at Dong Ji is fried individually upon order, promising only the freshest and the best quality you can get.
Those who often eat char kway teow would know that Singapore’s version of this dish is more sweet than savoury, while Malaysia’s versions are usually leaning towards the savoury side. Dong Ji Fried Kway Teow offers us an in-between, although it is light on flavour, the fried kway teow here is irresistible and worth the snaking queues!
Each serving of the noodles is laden with a generous helping of fishcakes, Chinese sausages and eggs. The intense wok hei scent shone through extremely well, and it is evident when we see the slight char on the edge of the rice noodles. You can also choose to go for the S$4 version that comes with squid and prawns for added textures and flavours.
Dong Ji Fried Kway Teow is worth a try especially if you love this local delight. Priced very affordably at just S$3/S$4, we reckon that you should be getting yourself a plate or two of their delectable char kway teow the next time you are at Old Airport Road Food Centre!
However, they do sell out quite early so do head over early to avoid disappointment.
