Not atypical ................

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!

Complaint against Apollo Fresh Cockles Fried Kway Teow - 01-174 Marine Parade Hawker Centre

This is a feedback on a particular unhappy incident with the above mentioned hawker and I appreciate this to be communicated to the hawker concerned.

On 3 March about 5.15pm, I order a plate of Fried Kway Teow, specifically informing the cook that I am don’t chilli in my food. Initially I wanted to order $3 and add cockles for $1, but the cook informed that I can only take $5 if I want more cockles... As such I agreed and again reminded him I didn’t want chilli.

However, I was given a plate with chilli so I headed back to request for a new plate since it was $5... The hawker reluctantly do it...

The complaint is against the hawker and his assistant.

The assistant shouted at me that they were not operating a durian stall and no guarantee eat... *Bao Jia* in Hokkien.I asked that I only wanted the kway teow and it has nothing to do with durians...He shouted back that if I weren’t happy, I should invite him to the front of the hawker centre to fight... I back off...

However, I think this is unacceptable bullying...

The cook, however, quietly made me a plate but it has very little cockles...

I didn’t want to pick a fight so I kept my peace.

However, as I reflected on it... this stall was given much accolades and so called awards, yet it does not live up to the expectation of food and service quality. Many thank in advance.

Cheers,

the difference is in the garlic...

If you are looking at a traditional sweet char kway teow, this is not the right stall. If however, you are a garlic lover, just like me, this stall may just be the char kway teow you like. The char kway teow here are fried covered with a gravy, making it siginificantly different than other char kway teow. The gravy is of course fried up with lots of garlic with the kway teow, and you tends to taste garlic with every bite. The cockles are also pretty large here, completes the dish. Personally, I like it, but really not enough to warrant me to queue up for it, so usually I give it a miss if the queue is too long.

Changed

Used to be my favourite. I went there a couple of months back and was a little disappointed. The way it is done seems different. Used to be wet - which is what I like, but then it is quite dry now. Have they changed the owner? Hope they can improve.
