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