Another very good char kway teow that we had in Penang was that from a roadside stall in Siam Road. This one is generally regarded as the best by many of the locals. We got there at about 4pm and had to wait quite a long time for our char kway teow.
Most of us felt that the Lor Selamat one is better but this Siam Rd one is almost as good and, at half the price, better value for money. The prawns are smaller but there’s more lup cheong and hum. Although it’s from a roadside stall, you can sit and eat the char kway teow at the kopi tiam opposite.
