Located in Marine Parade Central Market and Food Centre on Marine Parade Central, Apollo Fresh Cockle Fried Kway Teow serves Asian snacks.
I am surprised no one has even bothered to write a review on this stall. They have been around for quite a while and the Qs are still ever present especially at meal times. I have been patronizing them for quite while now, though not frequent, for the past 20 plus yrs.
I must say my palaette must have chnaged over the yrs. Don;t get me wrong, I still enjoy this unorthodox looking CKT stall every now and then, only problem I find it on the sweet side as I grow older. It is a mushy plate of kway teow (no yellow noodles), on the lighter colour side of things with heaps of garlic, a smatter of lup cheong and HUM.
While I have never been a big fan of hum, I must say the taste of the dish is compromised should you forgo this crucial ingredient. So U can always order with less hum and don't eat it if u don;t fancy it. But if you want to order one without, my take is to forget it. Eat something else.......
Be warned...the 2 blokes frying/manning the stall rarely if ever smile. Pls do not try to engage in chit chat or pleasantries.Get your food, pay up and scoot!
This is by far my favourite char kway teow. Unlike most places, they don't add yellow noodles, it's 100% kway teow. Secondly it's not dry. The downside to this is that when it's dished out it looks like a plate of slop. Which is why you are provided with a spoon that's more of a scoop. Do not be discouraged by the presentation, as it tastes amazing. But you have to like garlic as he's pretty liberal with it. Not for those watching their waistline. Chuck Norris approves of this char kway teow.
Note THE BEST but one of my favorite Fried Kway Teow stall in Singapore. They use the big flab kind of Kway Teow actually. The taste is good, the chilli is good too. What I really like about this stall is the whipped up eggs and the dish is so watery, it is a dish on its own where u can't have it anywhere else.
