The first thing on Brendan’s mind (and in his palate) after
being a week away from home was Char Kueh Teow! Apparently during his debate
camp 1Char Kueh Teow was not on the menu and he missed it terribly. We might
need to send him to Penang to further his studies if he keeps this up, there he
can have his favourite Char Kueh Teow for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.

light and dark soy sauce, chili, a small quantity of belachan, whole prawns,
de-shelled cockles, bean sprouts, chopped Chinese chives and egg
Surfing the internet we came across Frankie’s Char Kueh Teow
which was touted as doing a pretty decent job emulating the famous Penang Char Kueh
Teow, and so we headed over to Damansara Perdana to give it a go.

Located within Restoran 8888, we found out that Frankie is a
one man show (he stir-fries, he serves and he collects) so you can imagine how
hectic it can get if he is flooded with orders. Notwithstanding this, our
dishes were prepared pretty speedily. We all had Char Kueh Teow; Brendan and I deferred
from having it with bean sprouts (our pet hate).

Brendan enjoyed it so much he ordered a second plate, so no
prizes for guessing that we’ll certainly be back for more. At RM5 a plate,
together with beverages the total came to a reasonable RM25, so yeah, Frankie
definitely serves the everyday food for the everyday person.
