Outram Park Char Kway Teow @ Hong Lim
This is another hawker stall that is named after a location but operating at a different one!
When my colleagues suggested Char Kway Teow for lunch, I was thrilled as I'd not had this dish for about...a month? A month is a long time not to have a local hawker staple. I told them that I had to snap a pic of the food to share with my buddies. Yo, LB, this pic is for you!
As usual, it was quite a long wait for the Char Kway Teow so we had a starter of Rojak to whet the appetite. I was famished and ordered a small bowl of Prawn Noodles for my carb fix. It was a good thing that the wait (15 mins) is not as long as it used to be (minimum of 30 mins). I guess this is because the char kway teow is not like how it used to be when it was still located at a coffeeshop in Outram. I recall how I used to go there with my ex-colleagues @ 11.30am and buy about 20 packets for the rest of the char kway teow fans in the office. Nonetheless, the char kway teow is still fairly tasty but I would have preferred it to be a little less soggy, with a little more sweet sauce and more piquant.
