Lorong Selamat Char Kuey Teow at Kedai Kopi Say Hoi Taman Cheras
Let’s be honest, it is hard to get a decent char kuey teow in Kuala Lumpur. It might looks like a simple dish but it requires skills and ‘wok hei’ to stir fry a good char kuey teow. After reading some recommendations from Makan Club, I decided to drive all the way to Taman Cheras to try this Lorong Selamat Char Kuey Teow at Kedai Kopi Say Hoi.
I went there around 10 am and the area was really packed due to the morning market. Finding a parking spot is hard but if you willing to walk, you might find one or two further down the road.
Surprisingly, the coffee shop was empty during my visit. Maybe many people are still busy in the morning wet market.
I ordered the Char Kuey Teow and to be honest, it looks really good. There are rumours saying the owner is related to Lorong Selamat in Penang but I didn’t ask. I went there for the food, not for the rumours.
In case you are wondering, I prefer my char kuey teow mixed with noodles as I love that texture. Firstly, it comes with two large prawns, Chinese sausage, cockles (siham), eggs and beansprout.
Since taste is very subjective when it comes to char kuey teow, I loved this. Wok hei is there, the taste and this is so satisfying. I will never say this is the best but good enough to satisfy me.
I forget about the pricing but it is definitely less than RM 10 for the normal char kuey teow. Honestly, I don’t mind coming back again as this is so satisfying. This is Lorong Selamat Char Kuey Teow at Kedai Kopi Say Hoi Taman Cheras and this is worth a try.
