One thing that creates Wan Char Koay Teow (WCKT) mount out from a rest is their pioneering menu offerings. Besides a common prawn and cockles, other seafood such as squid, baby lobster, crayfish, clams and even soothing bombard crabs are available.
Even yet Wan is from a easterly coast, his Char Koay Teow is an instrumentation of a strange recipe from Butterworth. His process of cooking is rather opposite from what we am used to see in Penang, that is not unequivocally a large understanding to me as prolonged as a ambience is there.
The initial thing we beheld about a original CKT (kerang + udang @ RM5 for normal portion) is a some-more plump than common cockles – good if we like them big. The prawns were uninformed too, clear by their organisation and honeyed strength and palliate of peeling.
If we wish to suffer a Char Koay Teow during a dictated flavor, I’d advise we ask to replace a preserved chillies, or have it served alone so that a clever vinegar ambience does not ‘taint’ a benevolence of a noodles.
For a hold of luxury, a baby lobster CKT is labelled during RM15. The baby lobster was dipped into a special curry beat and boiled alone before being surfaced on a portion of ‘kosong’ CKT.
Wan used to use flower crabs for his CKT yet after a feedback from a business about a con of carrying to de-shell a crabs, he motionless to examination with soft bombard crab instead.
At RM13 per serving, we get a whole soothing bombard crab, that is prepared accurately like a baby lobster earlier. Between a lobster and soothing bombard crab, we indeed cite a latter since there’s some-more strength to go around.
Here’s WCKT’s full menu. Satay is also accessible yet during a after time, they need to glow adult a colourless grill. Even yet they are handling from one of a coffee shops located during a belligerent building of a residential condo, visitors can expostulate in and park in any dull parking space.
