It’s been raining pretty much the whole day since we got back from Minang Maimbau. Brendan had a hankering for Char Kueh Teow, and this is one dish that’s not readily available where we live. Seeing as Chuan Hupp is our default Chinese food court when it comes to all things noodle, we made our way here this wet and rainy night. In fact we’ve already covered this place here and here, which is a clear testament of how much we adore this food court.
It’s been a while since we’ve been here (the last time we were here was in July) and we noticed that they’ve widened the dining area. Some of the stalls that used to occupy the five-foot way have been moved to make way more tables and chairs. We think the proprietors of the place must have noticed that most diners preferred the five-foot way to the indoor seating area which can be quite stifling from the heat of the sizzling woks, and can be almost sauna-like.

Brendan ordered the (what else?) 1Char Kueh Teow; Cat tried the 2Wat Tan Hor while I ordered my firm favourite, the Beef Noodle Soup.
1flat rice noodles stir-fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chili, a small quantity of belachan, whole prawns, de-shelled cockles, bean sprouts, chopped Chinese chives and egg
2also known as Char Hor Fun or Kong Fu Char depending on where you’re from, flat noodles coated in thick and creamy egg-laden gravy

Hold up, hold up… check this out!
|a SECOND helping of char kueh teow?|
|devilish, isn't he?|
We don’t know if it’s because of the rain or whether he had a good workout earlier in the evening, but Brendan had a second helping of his favourite Char Kueh Teow. And the damage? Even with a second plate of Char Kueh Teow it still came to an incredibly inexpensive sum of RM26.10 which includes herbal tea all round. Does this food court represent the everyday food for the everyday man or what?
