If the rating of fried kway teow is based on how much fervency the kway teow is fried with, how late it starts business, how much egg is added or how big the cockles are, Hai Kee Teochew Fried Kway Teow would definitely come up top.
For this fried kway teow at Margaret Drive Food Centre starts selling only at 5pm, invariably with a long queue of customers. The man running the stall alone, fries the kway teow with so much vigor, it appears as if the wok may break into pieces anytime. A $3 plate of kway teow is fried with two eggs and ten huge cockles, it is impossible to find another that is more value-for-money.
Impressively fried with a distinctive charred aroma, the delicious kway teow is delightfully sweet and flavorful, coated with so much fried egg, it should be called fried egg kway teow. The exceptionally huge cockles are fresh and juicy, complementing the kway teow wonderfully.
As I mentioned earlier, this is one fried kway teow that truly deserves a high rating and is definitely worthwhile queuing up for.
