Sin Wah Penang Char Koay Teow, Pulau Tikus

Penang is so famous for Char Koay Teow and it’s a must eat when you come visit in Penang or if you are a Penangite, you must like it. Haha. There’s too many nice char koay teow in Penang and one of which I know and like is in Pulau Tikus market, at the hawker stall area which sells only at night.

The stall name is called the Sin Wah Char Koay Teow and I got to tell you that the owner got a little bit cocky. He will always tell you, ” You need to wait 30 minutes, want to wait or not?” Haha. But I don’t mind waiting because it usually served in about 15 minutes.

There’s 3 big prawns in the koay teow, nicely fried with salted duck egg and lard. The fragrance, the taste and the texture are real good. It may not be the best, I don’t know how to say it’s the best, yet it’s nice. The best part, it’s only RM4.50 which is cheaper than the RM8 at Lorong Selamat.
