I made a decision to carry my colleague, Aaron, the resident AMK-expert, alongside for this meal. We shared a plate of Fried Kway Teow (S$5), and naturally, we opted in for the cockles and chilli for the complete expertise.

Certainly, it was a very good day. This plate of Fried Kway Teow was wonderful— it was garlicky, savoury, full-bodied, and full of wonderful smoky and wokhei flavours. On the base of all these scrumptious flavours was a well-balanced sweetness (which I suppose is from the darkish soy sauce and a few sugar), which helped all of the flavours come collectively in a wealthy and yummy method.

It was spicier than I’d favored. The chilli was brilliant and got here throughout in a distinguished method, and after a couple of mouthfuls, I discovered myself sniffling from the built-up spiciness.

As for the feel, it’s positively wetter than most char kway teows I’ve had, however every glistening strand of kway teow was lusciously coated in a combination of sauce and oil, making every chew fully sinful however totally price it.

Hidden contained in the thick folds of char kway teow had been your common substances, resembling sliced fishcakes, lap cheong, cockles and beansprouts. 

For a plate of S$5, the quantity of cockles and lap cheong that we had been given was sadly fairly little. It took Aaron and myself a couple of minutes to dig up two to a few items of every, as if it had been a scavenger hunt!

Out of those substances, my favorite was the lap cheong, because it appeared to have been seared beforehand, making a charred saltiness that went fantastically properly with the Fried Kway Teow.

The lard items had been tossed so properly with the char kway teow that it regarded as if it had soaked up the gravy. I used to be nervous that it had softened within the course of, however all it took was one chew for me to be received over by these little morsels of goodness.

Although it certainly was a bit comfortable on the skin, each bit of lard was nonetheless deliciously puffy and crispy on the within, and biting into it launched a combination of smoky, salty and umami-filled flavours. Sorry eating regimen, you’ll have to attend— these crispy pork lard items are too addictive!
