Although we aren’t big fans of halal variants of Chinese dishes we must say, Mie Cord’s Char Koay Teow is simply the BOMB. The dish itself is slightly sweet and has a hint of spiciness and comes with a good amount of seafood.

While Kedai Kopi Yuyi is widely known for its delicious Pork Noodles, the Char Kuey Teow here is pretty underrated.  It has a good “Wok Hei” flavour to it and do expect generous amounts of prawns.
