No 18 Fried Kway Teow
If you’re on a diet, this is not the dish for you. The dark, glistening sticky tangle of flat rice noodles was fried vigorously in lard, black sauce and lashings of chilli sauce before generous servings of egg, cockles, lap cheong (Chinese dried sausage), fishcake and bean sprouts were added. The rough handling left the noodles somewhat on the short side; we almost had to eat the dish with a spoon. But there’s no denying the technical prowess: the bean sprouts were cooked to a perfect translucence with a pleasant bite, while just enough dark soy sauce was splashed in, so that the noodles weren’t as abrasively sweet as some versions we’ve had.
This is kind of disappointing. No 18 Fried Kway Teow is so famous that people called it the prime minister’s favourite local food. Also, it is being featured by food magazine, bloggers and articles are pasted all over their stalls. If you were to google the best Fried Kuay Teow in Singapore, I believe that this would definitely appear inside one of the search engine! Well, Well, Well, this is my favourite stall for Fried Kway Teow.
Even when I come here during non-peak hours, there are queues every single minutes! Really dislike queuing that I only did it for this stall. Teehee. Personally, I do not like bean sprouts but their fried kway teow with bean sprouts really make it so crispy. The food is not that oily too! Alright, the best part would goes to the cockles. I am a real fussy person that cockles really matter to me when I eat this local food. I mean who will enjoy eating a fried kway teow with not fresh cockles, so small and taste so bloody. Nobody right? This hawker stall served good quality cockles that I always add more cockles. :)
