for kris...


This is Chow Kuey Teow, a fried noodle you must have when you visit Malaysia. Penang is said to have the best but I beg to differ. This was bought in a dirty lane off Changkat Raja Chulan. You can't see the crispy pork lard (yummy) but you can see how it's topped with Chinese sausage. Somewhere under that are prawns, juicy succulent prawns.

Well, here's a story. A couple of weeks ago, I teased Kris about it. Following my comment, she and Lisi started talking to each other about it. Last week, Lisi shot me an email and asked whether I'd like to post a picture of said noodles for Kris because she missed 'home' cooked food (or something like that.) Lisi will be posting the noodles today too!

There are many variations of this Chow Kuey Teow, each one attempting to be the one closest to the original recipe. Who knows anymore? But there can only be two people who'd like to send this take-away over to one of our finest DP members. Kris, tengoklah puas-puas. Satu hari nanti, akan dirasai lagi. Jangan lupa pulang melawat sekali-sekala ya?

OOOHHH!

Can't say no lah!

CKT is on the top of my fave Asian "food trips" list. Last CKT I had was in a hawker's place in Singapore... oh and also in many other places there. Really yummy! I also love HKs version, Lisi. Very tasty!

I will definitely try KL's version...! Looks really yummy! Your photo wants to be eaten...

Now, I'm hungry!
