Penang Fried Kway Teow at Killiney Kopitiam
I realise I have never tried Killiney Kopitiam's grub (apart from their kaya toast just once or twice). An outlet has sprung up at Marine Parade Central and their picture of Penang fried kway teow looked good (yes, I so often get sucked in that way).
OK, I will have to qualify that I can still barely taste food properly (with my nose blocked). But I did detect some fragrant aroma coming as the waiter served this rather pleasing-looking dish. My limited tastebud senses told me it's fairly spicy, savoury and garlicky with a touch of sweet (but giant pieces of the taste puzzle were still missing). Did not see pork lard bits but there were lots of egg, crabmeat, fishcake, beansprouts and three prawns.
For S$3.50, this was fairly good value, considering you're dining in air-con comfort and not fighting with the crowds for seats (as you'd be at the hawker centre or Parkway's foodcourts). Click on the menu here to see other offerings and prices. They also feature daily specials that change.
