Restoran 粿條王 Koay Teow King claimed to be the Authentic Penang Char Koay Teow Since 1992. This restaurant is owned by VIVA GOURMET SDN BHD. It is located at 8, GROUND FLOOR, JALAN SS21/58, DAMANSARA UTAMA, 47400 PETALING JAYA, SELANGOR.
To be honest, I won’t mind trying out for the first time. But don’t expect me to come back again, because it’s not worth it at all.
I ordered Combo A: Char Koay Teow with Duck Egg + Pat Poh + Belacan Chicken Wing = RM17.00 and…… I regretted coming here.
Char Koay Teow with Duck Egg
No “wok hei” so I don’t get the aroma that I like. The taste is uneven, I did gave it the noodles and cockles a stir-mix before I eat. The koay teow are salty. The cockles are served cold AND so stingy, I think I saw like 3 pieces only. Yes, they gave 2 big prawns which as less salty than the koay teow. Also seen is 1 or 2 slices of “lap cheong”. The bean sprouts are too long to my liking. And the pork lard is not crispy at all. If I’m not mistaken, a plate of char koay teow only is RM12. Oh ya.. the koay teow they used, is not the usual ones I eat, which I don’t really like.
Everything and anything you add-on is chargeable. My say, I prefer the normal char koay teow than this. Why? The normal ones, all the ingredients are fried together and served, not like this, 1 side of cockles, 1 side of prawns, etc.. AND the banana leaf at the bottom is useless..
Belacan Chicken Wing
Another disappointment. Where is the belacan taste? I have eaten tastier version at other places. The saltines on the wing is also uneven.
The picture is big enough for you to see what I ate.
You can try yourself, and it’s individual preference anyway..
