Peter at Jago Close - Char Kway Teow

Char kway teow, originally uploaded by Camemberu.

This half-stall at Jago Close has built up a reputation for good char kway teow. It's not bad and I'd eat it more than once but it's not exactly something I'd travel across half the island for.

The first mouthful is very nice but somehow the subsequent ones can taste a bit bland, like the tastebuds have been numbed - sometimes I wonder if the allergens in seafood can have that effect on tongues. I've had similar encounters with Hokkien mee too.

If you'd like extra ingredients (e.g. cockles), you can add S$1. I've not tried the carrot cake - or maybe I have and forgotten. Anyway, Peter only opens in the evenings, 5.00pm to 11.30pm (good for supper!). He's been in business since 1969 but I guess he only takes orders now and leaves the heavy-duty frying work to his younger protege.
