SG Hawker Favourites: Char Kway Teow 炒粿条
Char Kway Teow.. the dish that I used to eat a maximum of once a year, if not once every two years. I remember when I first met Jason, I had quite a culture shock knowing that he had CKT once every two weeks or once a month. Same for Laksa. It has never occurred to me that anyone can eat these so frequently, until the girls and I were discussing this one night at Ru’s place, and then I realised I am the “weird” one. They all felt it is ok to eat Char Kway Teow once every two weeks.
Homemade Yong Tau Foo 酿豆腐
Yes, I still have the 闲情 to go make yong tau foo from scratch! Yong tau foo is a big part of my diet because I love to deceive myself just how healthy it is! It is healthy if you choose the fresh ingredients like broccoli, xiao bai cai, seaweed, tomato, lady’s finger, and maybe add a dumpling or two, but it is NOT healthy if you order alllll the deep fried stuff and eat it with curry gravy!
