Last Sunday’s lunch was at Bedok South Food Centre. My eyes brightened up when I heard it because the first thought was “CHAR KWAY TEOW!”. Unfortunately, the boyfriend never enjoys Hill Street Fried Kway Teow and until today, I still don’t know why. But he will still queue 45 mins to buy a plate of fried kway teow for me.
Anyway, I need to get my craving fixed because Bedok South is not very convenient and we don’t visit it very often. In fact, I have been craving for Hill Street Fried Kway Teow since the Ultimate Hawker Fest event a few months back.
I think one of the essence of a good plate of fried kway teow is definitely the wok hei. And the owner of Hill Street Fried Kway Teow has definitely done it well because you can taste the smoke flavour of the noodles clearly. If you take a closer look at his wok, he uses a very shallow wok which is probably only 5 inches deep. This is to make sure the kway teow is fried uniformly.
A plate of $3 fried kway teow (above pic) has alot of ingredients in it. I like how crunchy the bean sprouts are, with lots of eggs and sweet dark sauce. Not forgetting the bits and bits of crunchy pork lard, oh mine, it’s heavenly! One unique ingredients which this stall has is the addition of chives which is believed to enhance the flavours of the noodles.
We all know that eating too much fried kway teow is definitely not good for the body, so if you really want to fix your fried kway teow craving, make sure you go to a good one so that you won’t waste your calories on something unworthy. Hill Street Fried Kway Teow is definitely worth the queue but it won’t be the top of my list. Somehow, I still prefer No 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow.
