Makan Makan Penang :Heng Huat aka Lorong Selamat Char Kway Teow

So much has been said about this famous Char Kway Teow that no makan trip to Penang is complete without dropping by for a plate of it. So famous even you can find her in Garmins GPS map written as the Fat Diva in red cap which fried one of the most expensive CKT in Penang !!! With prices starting at RM7 a pop its rather pricy compares to others, but seing those huge prawns , you would feel that its worth the price you are paying.

The Char Kway Teow literally “fried flat noodles”, is The flat rice noodles are fried with prawns, cockles, egg, bean sprouts, Chinese chives, and chili paste fried over very high heat.The best Char Koay Teow is usually fried with pork lard, which gives that extra aroma to the dish.

The half an hour wait is worth it as we waited patiently for the plate to arrive. Steaming hot off the charcoal fired stove, the CKT is well flavoured from the sweetness of the huge prawns and we finished it in no time !!!
