|Simple stall with only one dish.|
|Fireworks in action.|
The specialty of his stall was the Kuey Teow fried with duck egg and at RM3.40 for a small plate and RM3.60 for a large one, this place (and Taiping in general) still remains one of the few places in Malaysia where a good place of Char Kuey Teow doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
|The secret ingredients.|
The Char Kuey Teow is whipped and stirred into perfection with the creamy and rich duck egg mixed with chicken egg before it is served on a leaf-lined plate. You can really taste the smokiness of the charcoal in the noodles, bringing out the mix flavour of the eggs, prawn and beansprout. It wasn't too oily as I believe the leaf soaks up the oil while adding a tad bit of flavour to the dish.

The uncle cooks his dishes one order at a time to maintain the quality and one might end up waiting between 20 minutes to an hour for his Kuey Teow. I say it is well worth it but that's just my option. Let me know what you think if you so happen to drop.
