Although I frequently patronise Marine Parade Food Centre for dinner, I have never eaten Apollo Fried Kway Teow for the past 5 years because I disliked its soggy consistency and its strong garlic odour. Nevertheless this stall continued to enjoy long queues which made me wonder if I have missed something great about this fried kway teow. Hence I decided to try it again today.
This time round, I was extremely impressed. A plate of fried kway teow which costs $3 is expertly fried to the right consistency and moisture with a distinctive charcoal fragrance. Sprinkled with generous servings of crispy pork lard, the flavorful kway teow is delightfully sweet and savory, every mouthful is simply irresistable. My only dissatisfaction is that there are too few fresh cockles which complement the fried kway teow really well.
No longer soggy with the unpleasant garlic odour, Apollo fried kway teow seems to have improved over the years. I have to admit that this is one of the best fried kway teow that I have eaten in Singapore for a long time.
