Cockle Fried Kway Teow review @Toa Payoh Lorong 5
It was fascinating to watch the uncle swirl the flat rice noodles and yellow noodles on wide steel turner. Of course, fried kway teow can’t possibly do without the eggs, beansprouts, sliced Chinese sausage or Lup Cheong, some bloody cockles and the ultimate flavour enhancer – Lard! The combination all the ingredients is a plate of drool-worthy fried kway teow that is irresistible to many of us.
Cockle Fried Kway Teow @Toa Payoh Lorong 5 food centre is one of the popular stalls here The uncle hardly could take a break or slow down with the flowing in of orders. Seems like the alluring unhealthy noodles are too good to turn your back on it.
A good Cockle Fried Kway Teow has a well-balanced texture and taste. You can be assured that the flat white kway teow and yellow noodles are not lumpy and soggy, and had a nice and pleasant texture with hints of charred flavour melded in between the bites.
Sweetness was not overwhelming and the seasoning helped to create a plate of flavourful noodles that we liked. All other ingredients were acceptable, but we requested for no cockles to lessen our guilt of indulging in this plate of cholesterol-packed noodle.
The cast iron wok never has a chance to cool down for a second; consistently brimming with orders, keeping the uncle busy. It was drizzling outside but the plate of Fried Kway Teow definitely helped to keep our hearts warm.
