Char Kuey Teow with Duck Egg with Tourism Selangor!

One of the greatest pleasures in life lies in the simplicities that include finding food wherever I go & being able to talk to vendors about their lives & food operation. Intrigued by the signage on the stall that says, ”˜’TRY ME! Char Kuey Teow with Duck Egg,’ I ordered a plate to see what difference duck eggs made to the taste of a conventional plate of char kuey teow (fried flat noodles). Tiam Fatt Fried Kuey Teow Stall is hidden away at a cul-de-sac of shops between Jalan Bandar 1 & Jalan Bandar 2 in Taman Melawati & has been in operation for 13 years!

This month, Tourism Selangor’s Food Hunt with Pummkin brings you a unique Penang dish of fried kuey teow with duck egg not found anywhere else within a 10km radius! I beg for you to prove me wrong because duck eggs seem to be a delicacy & rarity here. There’s a coffeeshop nearby where you can sit & savour your hot plate of kuey teow while they serve you your order of drinks. Nothing is better than a glass of iced milk tea for mid-morning brunch!

Patrick Kam, the vendor behind the tasty dishes, hails from Penang, hence, the Penang-styled Fried Kuey Teow & authentically so with the addition of duck egg instead of the norm. The plate of fluffy kuey teow has big prawns, clams, bean sprouts & fish cake slices to complement the tasty egg. Patrick thrives in finding out how you like yours done so drop by, tell him you read about him in Pummkin’s Pitch & he’ll throw in extra goodies in your plate of kuey teow! I ordered mine with ”˜tor tor hum’ (plenty of see-ham/clams). Watch the video below to see how it was prepared!
