  • The 5 Best Char Kway Teow in Singapore Image: Sanctu

Char Kway Teow also known as Fried Kway Teow is one of the most wanted dishes in Singapore that you cannot past through. You may be melted with the mixture of flat rice noodles and egg noodles which 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 delights the dish with special flavors. These days, in the  healthier version of this delicious fried noodle dish, lard is replaced by oil, and more vegetables are added in.

Char Kway Teow can be found at any hawker centres in Singapore, but it’s not easy for you to find the best one. So, we are happy to share the 5 best Char Kway Teow destinations, recommended by many locals that you can add to your priority.
