Char Koay Teow(CKT)

Char Koay Teow is the top 5 of our favourite street food! This dish is made with Chinese rice flat noodles chilli fried with bean sprouts, eggs, prawns, cockles, garlic chives(and often chinese sausages). Purists of CKT insists on pork lard and wok-fried noodles over a charcoal fire.CKT is generally good all over Penang but our few favourites in town(in random order):

  • Siam Road uncle
  • Tiger CKT (Kopitiam at the corner of Lebuh Melayu & Lebuh Carnarvon)
  • Lorong Selamat( Choose the stall with the lady in goggles but beware of her temper!)
