In Penang there is alot of famous street food, but but but where is the best Char Koay Teow? Again would like to highlight again, everyone have their own taste preference. this Penang Street Food Char Koay Teow In Lorong Selamat Penang run by this auntie is one of a famous char koay teow that many travelers regard as.
She had been running this stall easily for more than 30 years. Using Charcoal to fried her signature koay teow is indeed pretty good. The only set back is the inconsistantcy.
I was lucky or during lock down, I do not have to wait 30 – 60 minutes in line to wait for a pack of this. Also I get to enjoy her slow cooking in charcoal fire filled with wok Hei. This was during last year August 2021 where state traveling is still restricted.
till last month April when I was back in Penang and decided to give it a try. The taste indeed quite different to the time I had in CMCO. A pack of this Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow serve with 2-3 big prawns is at RM 11-RM20. Depending you would want to add prawns.
