Guan Kee Fried Kway Teow sometimes known as “Ghim Moh Char Kway Teow” has just been listed in the Michelin Bib Gourmand Singapore, joining Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee at Hong Lim Food Centre and Lao Fu Zi Fried Kway Teow at Old Airport Road Food Centre in the ranks.
That also means that some other well-known CKT stalls such as Hill Street Fried Kway Teow at Bedok South Food Centre and No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow at Zion Road Food Centre are left out. Well, well.
This stall was once awarded in the Channel U television programme, which propelled its fame further.
It has the longest queue and it is surely one of the gems of Ghim Moh.
The wait can be a bit long and tedious as uncle prepares the dishes at his own pace, but their Fried Kway Teow ($3/ $4/ $5) is worth the wait for its fans.
A few things to note: The stall is only opened 3 days a week (Tues, Wed, Sat) for short window period of 7:30am to 2pm.
Even if you see say about just 6 to 8 customers in the queue, it may take anything from 20 minutes to more than half an hour because uncle fries plate by plate, and some customers may be buying packets for the village.
Also, no advance ordering allowed.
Uncle is an act to watch. While most hawkers are hidden in the background or you can throw a peek at how they cook up a fare, you would notice a window where you can watch uncle fry up plate-by-plate.
Like a ‘live’ kitchen concept.
There are all the basis ingredients of eggs, cockles, kway teow, fried pork lard and lap cheong, along with reasonably good wok-hei.
Quite balanced flavours as well, even though you do not really taste that sweet-sauce.
However, I suspect that some customers would prefer a version in which the dark sauce is more pronounced.
Some customers said that the best flavours are experienced upon ta-baoing home in which the heat gets ‘trapped’ within the packet.
