Penang Fried Kway Teow at Killiney Kopitiam

Penang Fried Kway Teow, originally uploaded by Camemberu.

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.

82 Marine Parade Central - along the row where Sam's Pets & Aquarium is (sorry, didn't take down the unit number, thought I could get it online but their website is dead)



  1. that looks like real penang char kway teow! no pork lard? isn't that an important ingredient in ckt? Anyway, hope u r feeling better now :>

  2. Yeah, Nic, pork lard is important in CKT (and many many dishes!). The kway teow looks a bit like pad thai too!

    Still not feeling too good, but thanks for asking. I hope to get better soon, so I can taste food again properly! :)

  3. Hey, I love Penang Char Kway Teow..prefer it to the usual black sweet sauce CKT. There used to be a very good stall at the Holland Close Hawker Centre but they have since left the place. Great to know that there is another place selling it : )

  4. Dear Camemberu, You can try the Penang CKT at Ya kwang Lor 37 Geylang. This one dont have pork lard too but well fried.
    Pls take care of your self.

  5. mimosa: Yes, I prefer Penang style over the black sauce one too! Just that it's harder to find in Singapore (good ones especially)!

    smart: Ah yes, thanks for the reminder. I remember seeing a nice pic of it on ieat's blog!
