Yong Kee Seafood Restaurant – What Is This Chao Tar Thing?
From the picture alone, you might have thought this was a strange looking pancake. Well, you would never have guessed that this was a plate of bee hoon. To be more precise, a plate of chao tar bee hoon (burnt vermicelli).
This crispy vermicelli ($5) is a must try at Yong Kee located within a coffeeshop along Jalan Besar Road. You might have seen this dish before in Malaysia, but it is definitely uncommon. The wait of 20 minutes was long, but it was worth every minute.
Yong Kee Seafood Restaurant, Boon Hwa Food Centre, 43 Jalan Besar (opposite Sim Lim Tower)
