Leong Seng Huat fried kway teow 两成发炒粿條 is well known among locals especially Penangites in JB. Some even call Leong Seng Huat kopitiam "Little Penang" because we can find different types of Penang signature food here such as Penang prawn mee and Penang lor mee.
Ah Kiong 亚強 runs the char kway teow (CKT) stall at Leong Seng Huat together with his dad who is from Penang. The family has now settled in Johor Bahru.
My plate of char kway teow today was fried by Ah Kiong's dad. The char kway teow during my first visit was fried by Ah Kiong.
Just simple ingredients in this plate of char kway teow - rice noodles, bean sprouts (taugeh), chives, egg, seeham (cockles) and a couple of shelled prawns.
No lup cheong (Cantonese waxed sausage) or fish cakes.
The rich noodles well coated with savoury sauce was dry as in the Penang style of CKT. The rice noodles were the narrow width type known as kway teow kia 果条仔.
The rice noodle were tender and slightly caramelised with the aromatic sauce well seared in.
The taugeh were crunchy, and the good sized prawns were tasty too.
The fresh seeham (blood cockles) were well cooked but not overdone, so they were tender and juicy. Most were, however, tiny.
->> A nice, simple, no frills, delicious plate of Penang style char kway teow. A favourite of JB folks.
