Hai Kee Teochew Cha Kuay Teow At Telok Blangah
A stall with a history of more than 50 years, Hai Kee Teochew Cha Kuay Teow was previously located at Margaret Drive Hawker Centre before moving to Telok Blangah Crescent Food Centre around five years ago. A one-man show stall, Mr Loh Kwee Leng cooks each plate individually, ensuring consistency of quality. While this means waiting time might take a while, trust us when we say it is truly worth the wait!
Awesome Char Kway Teow With Cockles & Pork Lard
Offering prices of $4.50 and $5, we went for the $5 version as the $4.50 portion is served without egg. The noodles lean towards the sweet side, yet there’s a pleasant amount of savouriness that gives a good balance of flavour. Moist and smoky, the smokiness lingers after each bite, making you crave for the next almost immediately. Additionally, the chilli gives it a slight kick of spice to tie the flavours together.
The Char Kway Teow here is kept simple as it’s served with only four ingredients – egg, cockles, bean sprouts, and pork lard. Though some might feel the need for lup cheong and fishcake, simply take a bite of the cockles and pork lard and all your concerns will be put to rest. The servings are incredibly generous as well, with at least a cockle or pork lard in each bite!
The cockles are fresh and plump, with a good bite and have a really nice clean taste to them. As for the pork lard, they come in big chunks without any trace of the residual oil taste. These beautiful golden nuggets give the noodles an amazing layer of crunch and umami that’s sinful, yet simply divine.
