Famous Char Kuey Teow @ Kedai Kopi Dan Ais Kacang, Lorong Selamat, Penang

Penang has been famous for its char kuey teow. I've been craving for a good char kuey teow for some time since the stall near my house missing in action few months ago. When I was in Penang last weekend, I wouldn't be satisfy without tasting a good char kuey teow. Indeed, I found one great char kuey teow stall at Lorong Selamat in Penang. It was a great find thanks to CK Lam.

Many would go to the sister's char kuey teow stall at Lorong Selamat, but we were recommended to a "uncle's stall" a few steps away. The stall is located in front of the Kedai Kopi Dan Ice Kacang.


The stall looked damn cool, just parked at the roadside.


The owner was much cooler with his googles.

There were 4 of us. Rachel, Khai, Steph and me. We went to the stall to order the food. The owner told us that we had to wait for 1 hour and 15 min! We were shocked!

We told the owner, we would wait! There won't be any more Foh San story this time around.
For that, we waited one hour plus for the char kuey teow. Unbelievable isn't it?


We ordered 2 plates of char kuey teow. A plate with big 3 prawns cost around RM 6.00 per plate. Expensive to many Penangites but to us it was okay. The food itself was very good. Worth the wait! Chinese sausages, cockles, big prawns and beanspouts were stir fried together to perfection. We loved it! Very recommendable!
