Fried Noodle with Prawns RM4.50
It was a rainy night. Jack and I went to Damai area to searched for a "Tai Chow" stall but couldn't find it. We ended up having Char Koay Teow at his favourite stall for dinner.
Jack don't like the taste of cockles, so, he ordered his Fried Noodle with Prawns. They are very generous with the prawns as about 5-6 fresh prawns was found in his plate of noodle. Taste wise, it was good. Mild savoury wok taste with nice fragrant from the prawns.
Char Koay Teow RM4.50
My mom always said that the specialty of the Char Koay Teow is the aroma from the cockles. Even if I don't fancy cockles, just to get the aroma, I'll always opted my Char Koay Teow to comes with cockles. It tasted quite good but still lack of the 'oomph' factor that give me a full satisfaction while having Char Koay Teow. The savoury wok taste was there but it still lack of something, probably the taste of garlic? I never know...
Stir-fry Bitter Gourd with Egg RM5.00
The shop itself had a Tai Chow stall. I wanted to have some veggies, so I ordered the Bitter gourd. It was pretty good. Unexpectedly cheap as well.
