Moist, Black & Slippery.

Before anyone thinks of worms and the like, I should say that unfortunately this cow isn't into eating such exotic food.

The moist, black and slippery I was talking about refers to the Char Kway Teow over at Margaret Drive. This famous stall almost always has a long queue of people lining up for a plate of this local favourite. JiaLARD can attest to that and I have to thank Daniel who queued up for it while I went around scouting for more food.

The Char Kway Teow (~$3) dished up by the solo man who runs this stall was nicely moist and delicious. A mix of slightly sweet and savoury notes tickled my taste buds with each mouthful. The serving of hum (cockles) was generous and fans (not me) of it will surely be satisfied. But I would have liked more sweet sauce in here though.

In my humble opinion, this is one of the better Char Kway Teow in town.

Hai Kee Teochew Cha Kua Teow
Margaret Drive Hawker Centre
Opens: 5 to 10pm
Closed on Sundays and public holidays

Chew On This: This man behind the Char Kway Teow here is Teochew and must be one of the few in Singapore who whips up a fairly good plate of Char Kway Teow.
