Katong (Peter) Fried Kway Teow

Formerly located at Jago Close along East Coast Road, Katong (Peter) Fried Kway Teow has shifted to Tanjong Pagar Food Centre, bringing competition to the already famous Tanjong Pagar Fried Kway Teow there.

I ordered the $3 plate of fried kway teow which is served on a banana leaf with a generous variety of ingredients such as prawns, cockles, fish cake and Taiwan sausage. Well-fried with a subtle charred flavour, the tasty kway teow is savory and fragrant, not overly wet or greasy.

Comparing the two fried kway teow, Katong (Peter)'s is the salty type whereas Tanjong Pagar's is the sweeter type. Also Katong (Peter) uses the normal thick kway teow whereas Tanjong Pagar uses thin kway teow. Come down and try both to decide which one you like better but be prepared to queue with the lunch time crowd.

Man, for a food-lover, you don't know your leaves do you? That's not 'banana' leaf; it's 'opeh' (some spell it differently) from some kind of palm tree.

I bought it today and it is wrapped in banana leave not 'opeh' cos it's green!

Tried a few time, but notice sometimes the standard is different. Still prefer Tanjong Pagar Fried Kway Teow.
