Mention char kway teow to a Singaporean and you’re almost guaranteed to draw a mixed reaction: consternation and craving. It is, after all, hawker fare loved for its distinctly rich flavors but also comes with an unhealthy image. Loosely translated as “stir-fried rice cake strips,” the flat rice noodles come doused in sweet dark soya sauce with deep-fried lard, Chinese sausages, eggs, bean sprouts, chives and shelled cockles. There’s a steady stream of fans who patronize Hill Street Char Kway Teow. Here, you’ll find a balanced combination of flavors and texture; a dish that is neitr too wet nor too dry and comes with a fragrant whiff of the blistering wok.
