If you're craving for a good plate of char koay teow, you definitely don't want to miss this stall in Tanjung Bunga. Ah Soon Char Koay Teow has been around for a long time and is very well-known among the students in the Tar College students in Lembah Permai area.

The man used to ride his motorcycle around the housing area shouting door to door to take orders then deliver the packed food to them.

They started from a roadside stall at a coffee shop many years back then.

And today, they basically run the whole coffee shop by themselves selling their Char Koay Teow and Koay Teow Th'ng (flat noodle soup).

Their famous char koay teow are actually cooked by the wife, despite the stall is named after the guy owner.

And those tasty "char" flavors that you get to taste comes from the wok that is heated over charcoal fire.

Each plates are cooked fresh to order and not in a big batch, so it does take a short while of wait. (But you basically don't have to wait for a long queue under the hot sun.)

Their normal portion comes at a pretty decent size, with springy fresh prawns. You could always upsize to their large ones with extra prawns if "normal" is not your thing.
