Robert’s Penang Char Koey Teow at Damansara Kim


Robert's Penang Char Koey TeowOnce you’ve tasted the Char Koay Teow from states like Perak or Penang, there’s always a crave for it, at least that’s what I experience. Unfortunately here in Klang Valley, good CKT are hard to come by.

I’ve had horrible experiences here and there as I try out various CKT. 🙁 Robert’s CKT is one that I’ve heard quite a number of people mentioning so I decided to give it a try.

This is Robert’s CKT – I know they spell it as KUIH TEOW but not that it matters.

Here’s my portion, everything on it except for bean sprouts. Prefer to enjoy CKT without them.

My verdict? It still doesn’t have the “wok hei” like those I savored in Taiping and Penang and it’s not as oily but overall taste wise it’s still good.

For RM 5 it came with decently size prawns, and a few slices of “chinese sausages” aka lap cheong. Cockles on the other hand, were patheticly little – little in both size (aka small) and quantity.

Overall, the RM 5 is worth it – it’s HUGE plate, equivalent to about 2 plates of my regular shop at Taiping that costs about RM 2.50. Bear in mind that it’s about half the price of the CKT at Lorong Seratus Tahun. 🙂

Looking for CKT in PJ area? This is a good place to start.

  1. Seriously nasty looking dishes of food. It has all the visual appeal of three day old regurgitated pasta and cheese.
