{Penang} Tiger Char Koay Teow @ Carnarvon Street

December 11th, 2013 [Wednesday]

last time i tried the Lorong Selamat’s. this time i was introduced to Tiger Char Koay Teow by Ken (by now you should who’s he la, lazy to link :/), which is located at the junction of Carnarvon Street and Melayu Street (Lebuh Melayu). he will only have like one plate of char koay teow per  year, and 2013’s quota is 献给了我 XD awwwww.

we had lunchy together few doors away from this Tiger Char Koay Teow, another koay teow, but soupy version. since we were here just to taste it, we ordered one ‘keh liao‘ edition with minimal koay teow.

Tiger Char Koay Teow | RM 10

okay, this plate of char koay teow certainly doesn’t come cheap at RM 10, but you get 6 HUGE fresh and succulent prawns! as well as the usual ingredients like cockles, bean sprout and chives. i think they skimp on Chinese sausage, don’t remember i ate any.

anyway, i heard that Lorong Selamat’s has recently marked up their price, RM 10! and 3 prawns only! last time used to be only RM 7.50? my god.

my Sulley cute mou ehehehehehe

how does this fares? sorry, i still find Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow tasted better. i guess the wok hei produced via charcoal cooking is more intense.

however, if you do not want to queue and tolerate bad customer service, i would recommend Tiger Char Koay Teow. and it’s cheaper too, from RM 4. they offer duck egg char koay teow too! do keep in mind that the plate you see in this post is keh liao, we wanted more prawns, less koay teow. if you’re ordering normal version, please don’t expect to see as muchy prawns ar.

have to warn first, later you say food blogger is con(wo)man, berry pandai exaggerate. :/

Brian, Singaporean celebrity host! he’s the one HIGHLY recommended the Bridge Street Hokkien Mee, though i find it average only =.=

lai, open your mouth, annant feeds you (virtual) char koay teow XD

thank you for reading! have a great weekend, Anteaders!

    I should have gone to this place since no queue! 🙂

    Lorong Selamat is now priced at:

    RM 7 – No egg
    RM 8 – Egg, regular version
    RM 10 – Extra prawns (keh liaw as you mentioned) so it’s the same price as Tiger!

    However, the no egg and regular version is cheaper at Tiger’s though!

    I don’t understand the “no egg” part though – why would anyone eat CKT without egg? Haah!

      hallo Huai Bin!

      ohhh the price is still the same as last time! brought my family there and they were lamenting how come this small CKT so expensive haha!

      yeah, i don’t think anyone would order CKT sans egg too!
      wait, maybe there’s someone who eliminate egg from their diet? but don’t mind the oiliness? hmm i don’t get it. LOL

    Maybe because of the prawns so can charge more? But I think the price is just too steep… :/
