Char Kway Teow (also known as Fried Kway Teow) is one of the must-try dishes in Singapore.

In this dish, a mixture of flat rice noodles and egg noodles will be commonly stir-fried with eggs, cockles, lap cheong (Chinese sausages), bean sprouts, and Chinese chives. A traditional plate of char kway teow could not be done without lard, which is believed to bring out all the best flavours of the dish. These days, in a healthier version of char kway teow, lard is replaced by oil, and more vegetables are added in.

This dish can be found at any hawker centres in Singapore, but just a few hawkers serve the best char kway teow. The below ones are the best, recommended by many locals.

The charm of a No.18’s fried kway teow plate lives in the generous amount of fresh, juicy cockles and crunchy, juicy bean sprouts.
