Day Night Fried Kway Teow 日夜炒粿條

In the last few years of lunching at Bukit Merah Central Food Centre, I’ve filtered out a few good stalls and these make up my list of trusty, go-to stalls. One of them is Day Night Fried Kway Teow.


Fried kway teow, S$3.00. Prices start from $2.50.

There are a few elements I like about their version of fried kway teow.

  1. They use a thinner kind of kway teow, much like pad thai. This results in a lighter and more lively texture.
  2. The owner sears his noodles over very high heat. Each mouthful of noodles heaves with smoke, right till the end of the meal.
  3. Superbly moist and slippery, the noodles are evenly coated and have a pleasant balance of sweet and savoury flavors.
  4. There’s plenty of Chinese chives (I like!), a traditional touch that’s sadly missing at other fried kway teow places.
  5. Love the provision of calamansi lime, which provides a wonderful citrusy tang against the richness of the noodles!
