Ah Leng Char Koay Teow is a slightly 'wet' version of Penang CKT. They are currently running two stalls, operating at different hours and different locations in Penang.Join us on Facebook for latest food updates »
This stall at Ayer Itam serves the slightly moist and lighter version of char koay teow in Penang.
The CKT here is different from those other stalls you get in Penang.
Instead of charring, the koay teow are fried (individually by order) in lards, throwing in fresh prawns, cockles, beansprouts, eggs and chives.
A dollop of premixed seasoning sauce (the secret recipe) and chili paste is then added.
Towards the end of frying, a small amount of water is added in.
Ah Leng Char Koay Teow
The fresh prawns and cockles are barely cooked. It was merely seared on the outside, leaving them still bouncy on the texture when serve.
There are also options for "Specials" with mantis prawns added.
We recommend opting for the Duck Egg upgrade that adds extra creaminess from the duck yolk.
Note: There are two stalls of Ah Leng Char Koay Teow in Penang (both tasted equally good).
The 77-years old owner, Mr Teoh Koon Leng who has been helming the wok for almost four decades, is operating the stall on Zoo Road in Air Itam during the evening.
While in Dato Keramat, Tong Hooi Coffee Shop, their children runs the show from morning till noon.
