Char Koay Teow – Parit Buntar

Char Koay Teow, literally “stir-fried ricecake strips”, is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia. The dish is considered a national favourite in Malaysia and Singapore.It is made from flat rice noodles of approximately 1 cm or (in the north of Malaysia) about 0.5 cm in width, stir-fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chilli, a small quantity of belachan, whole prawns, deshelled blood cockles and bean sprouts. Painstakingly fried over a charcoal stove, the rice noodle strips were flavourful, slightly spicy and had a lovely smoky flavour.

Our favourite eatery outlet for this dish is Along Char Koaw Teow in Parit Buntar. It is situated opposite Masjid Kampung Kedah. We arrived about half an hour early of the 6.15pm opening time. Within a few minutes the eatery outlet is almost 70 percent full. Very near to opening time it is almost full. Something outrageously tasty is brewing.
