Char Koay Teow, one of the most popular dishes among Malaysians of all races.
3rd generation recipe from Grandpa – Papa – Son ~ Char Koay Teow
I was away for a short trip in my hometown, Penang. Due to craving for Char Koay Teow, my friend suggested to have it in Penang which located at the corner of Gama. Surprisingly my friend were from KL and he intro me (Penang Lang) to have this Char Koay Teow which I really have no idea about this stall. Sorry as I always have it only in certain place previously. So, when I reached that place, I found the stall name is unique. It called 风车巷 (Feng Che Xiang), means Windmill Lane.
This the old signage hanging up there since the 1st generation
Talking about the 1st generation, the signature food was actually Char Mee Suah and the Mee Suah is not the small mee suah we ate with soup but is a ‘big’ mee suah. This mee suah was actually their special handmade noodle and well know signature dish.
Slowly they came up with more choices as their signature dish- Char Koay Teow, Char Bee Tai Mak and Fried Rice.
I manage to catch up with the owner before their opening business and I am so surprised that the 3rd generation of the char koay teow stall is only 22 years old and for youngster nowadays is hardly can be seen to be a successor of food stall. The reason he became the successor is because his father no longer able to man the wok. However, he really could cook a similarity taste of 90% from his father. (Overall review by the regular customers)
Regular customers will come once they starts their business at 12pm and the place just filled up within 15 minutes and some even order for take away.
Done reading? lolx… It’s time for you to try the Char Koay Teow….
Open every Wednesday to Sunday. Starts from 12pm until finish
p/s: I was informed by owner that the nearby stall sell LorBak also 3rd generation and is very delicious.
