It was the second time we passed by this shop. I wasn’t very into char kuey teow tonight but I was clueless on what to eat for dinner. So I just parked my car and went in to Goreng Kuey Teow Tong Shin, a newly opend shop in Puchong. Being skeptical on the taste of street food that go into a shop, I wasn’t putting any special hope on the the food I gonna order, though it was famous Tong Shin kuey teow from Off Bukit Bintang. And I was right.
Well, nowadays you can open a shop by just selling fried kuey teow..=.=
Besides normal kuey teow, there are many extra ingredients you can choose and add into your kuey teow. Prawn, lap cheong,cockles, fried egg…you name it. However, extra ingredients = extra charges.
My girl wasn’t feeling that hungry, so she ordered a pair of popiah. The roll was quite decent in size but the chef was so stingy with the sauces.
Generous ingredients but it tasted bland.
The char kuey teow looked so tempting when it was served to us. My saliva dropped looking at the lap cheong but I was at a total dissapointment after giving it a taste. No wok hei and not fragrant at all even it was added with lap cheong. I rashly finished the plate of noodles for the sake of finishing it, paid, and left.
Now I am getting more skeptical on the food that was origin from the street stalls. Those food really tasted nice when back in the streets but when they expand into shop, the food need to be charged at a higher price and no longer delicious too. I still prefer the char kuey teow from SS15 Asia Cafe.
