Char Kway Teow @ Circuit Road – He Dances While Frying CKT!
For the past one month, we are on the hunt for some of the best char kway teow in Singapore. One of our stops is at Blk 79 Circuit Road where we tried Mr Chee’s char kway teow. Mr Chee used to run a car workshop and inherited his father’s business about 10 years ago.
So what’s so special about his char kway teow? You will realize his sausage is a little different from the usual sausages used in CKT. That’s because he uses halal-certified sausage and ham for his CKT. Plus, he doesn’t use lard to fry and replaces with vegetable oil.
Regardless of the changes, the fluffy noodles that were coated with spicy and eggy goodness. The dish had enough wok hei and tasted savoury with a slightly burnt aftertaste. The crunchy beansprouts are not overdone and its solid homemade chilli elevated the dish even better. We ordered the $3 and $4 version. The $4 plate of CKT is bigger with an addition of a big prawn. For us, $3 version is good enough with decent wok hei.
You should realize that Mr Chee sways with his frying movement. That’s because he wants to keep fit while frying his CKT! Watch how he dances while he fries his char kway teow.
