Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee is an old time favourite stall for fried kway teow in the Chinatown area.
Food cooked with lard tend to add another dimension to the dish, the magical fat somehow has the ability to perk up the taste buds with its aromatic flavour and make ones fall in love with the food. Lard is the essence of a good Fried Kway Teow and no matter how good your culinary skills, a plate of Best Char Kway Teow without lard will likely a mediocre. Of course, there are Char Kway Teow replaced the lard with healthier vegetable oil; one of the good examples is the famous 91 Fried Kway Teow from Golden Mile Food Centre. However, we think there is always a difference when compared with those cooked with the sinfully high cholesterol saturated fat. So, if you are craving for a real nice best Fried Kway Teow fried with lard, read our review for the top 4 best char kway teow in Singapore that we have tried and have our strong endorsement.
Colleague bought this as tabao for breakfast and boy it was still heavenly. The flavour is full ON and the noodles were not soggy even though tabao. The uncle is generous with the fried lard bits and that really brings the whole makan experience to a brand new level! My mum always say food that is tabao is usually only at best 80% if it's original flavour. So this fried Kway tiao must be some kind of amazing if you eat it there and then. 2 thumbs up!
Fried kway teow is traditionally a Teochew staple and naturally you will expect the Teochew uncles are working at the wok. It is interesting to find out Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee is actually running by a Hokkien uncle. We happened to watch the documentary featuring Outram park fried kway teow mee on the television, and realized the first owner actually learnt how to fry kway teow skills from a Teochew uncle, he who lent a helping hand on him when he was a young man struggling to find a living in Singapore. Started as a make shift cart went around to sell fried kway teow, followed by operating from a coffee shop and went through many relocations before settling down at Hong Lim Food Centre.
Fried kway teow has evolved over the years, in the early days, Chinese chives were added as one of the ingredients to provide the extra flavour and some green to the dish, chicken eggs have also replaced the duck eggs as a key ingredients, other changes may not be too noticeable but the older generations will tell you the noodles are not as good as it used to be compared to the old time. One thing for sure, the fried kway teow has gone through the facelift and what we are enjoying now is definitely not the authentic fried kway teow our ancestors used to enjoy.
We can taste the wok flavour in the Outram park fried kway teow mee, the kway teow was moist but fragrance from the pork lard added. The kway teow was oily and the sweetness was hit on the spot to create a mouth watering dish.
$3 for the standard serving, $1 extra for more cockles, 50c for more egg.
From our opinion, Outram park fried kway teow mee can be considered one of the best fried kway teow in Singapore but our best love still with the 18 Fried kway teow at Zion Riverside Food Centre.
