It’s a special occasion! This is one of those truly rare times that we’re up and about on a Saturday morning to have breakfast, since we only ever go out for breakfast if we’re away somewhere on holiday. Seeing as we’re scheduled to be in Publika later this morning to attend our two year old niece’s first ever ‘concert’ we thought we’d better have some breakfast first.
Brendan’s been having a craving for 1Char Kueh Teow these days, and because Robert’s Char Kueh Teow (CKT) has been receiving rave reviews online we thought we’d give this place a try. As luck would have it, the road leading to the place was congested with traffic heading in and out of the morning market just in front of our intended destination, so it took us a while to find a decent parking spot.
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

A small stall situated within Restoran Say Huat in Section 17, on this particular morning it was manned by an Indonesian lady and Robert was nowhere to be seen. Brendan and I proceeded to order the ‘big’ plate (minus bean sprouts, which Brendan and I absolutely abhor) while Cat had the ‘small’ plate.

|Cat had the 'smaller' plate (with bean sprout and all, ugh!)|
|not a morning person you say?|
The verdict? Taste wise it deserves all the hype it’s been getting online, and we love the fact that Robert’s CKT has sliced Chinese sausage as an added ingredient. With beverages coming to RM5.90, our breakfast came to a grand total of RM21.90 which we think is reasonable enough. Would we come again? Yes, but perhaps during dinnertime given that we found ourselves utterly full, an experience that rarely happens in the morning.
