It’s hard to get a good ‘char kway teow’ here in Ipoh. Or maybe I haven’t found the one that I like yet. I like them to be slightly soupy, with a strong taste of the ‘burn’ or ‘char’. Without the taste of the ‘burn’, it’ll be just another fried kway teow, wouldn’t it?
The most popular places for ‘warung’ style food with almost every ‘warung’ selling char kway teow would be Dataran MBI.. also known as MBI Terrace located in Greentown business center. I was confused with which stall we want to choose because to be honest, I’ve tried a couple before and none of the char kway teow were good and not worth the amount they were charging us. They were very soupy, with barely any ingredients. Taste weren’t good either.
As I was walking, trying to figure out where and what to eat, some guys from stall No 15 kept inviting to try their char kway teow. They were boasting how good their char kway teow is. After a short while of persuasion, I gave in and decided to try. I told them if the food is not good, I’m not paying it haha. But they guaranteed it would be.
