Taiping Wet Char Kuey Teow with Fish balls 太平炒魚丸粿條 (fried flat rice noodles)

We went to Taiping during Raya holidays recently, and had many nice foods and visited few interesting places, I hope to quickly compile those photos and share with you soon. And we had an interesting plate of difference style of Char Kuey Teow in Taiping. Their fried Kuey Teow is wet style (slight watery) and with fish balls. We like this slightly wet style of fried Kuey Teow and I just copycat it today.

This is a plate of fish balls Char Kuey Teow I tried at Taiping, full of "wok hei" !


My copycat version, not bad though! so long you added lard oil and fried lard, the taste will not run too far from the original version, but my home cooked still lacking of "wok hei"..

The best to enjoy this kuey teow with pickled green chillies and a cup of Kopi!

I haven't had my lunch and may I eat the kueh teow now?

Mel said...

Oh, I have not try this Taiping fried kuey tiaw before. Looks real yummy, as usual I always preferred the wet version than the dried ones.

Suet Ling said...

Original 的鱼丸炒果条是用一种大大片的叶子包的。而且更有特色的是坐在bang ku,用火炭炉在地面炒的。很香的果条 就可是比较油腻而已。好吃的!现在没有蹲着炒的果条了。因为卫生的问题。所以这炒果条也 naik pangkat 了。小贩必须提高卫生意思在桌面炒。哈哈哈。。。你吃的是哪一档呢?

很吸引人的炒果条, 希望现在可以在我面前。
那么, 我就不必煮晚餐了!

Interesting... I think I only have wet version from Malay stalls before, normally the Chinese ones I have are all dried version. Hope I can try this someday.

Kimmy said...

Hi Sonia, this fried koay teow reminds me of my late Taiping uncle. He used to ta pau this noodle [wrap in yam leaves] for me as supper whenever I stayed at his house during school holidays. It's good and different from Pg Char Koay Teow.

PH said...

Sonia, this one ho chiak, lor! I want to eat! At home can't achieve wok hei unless want to burn down the kitchen hee..hee...

Victoria Bakes said...

your blog always make me 破戒!i refrain from char kway tiao but after looking at this, i decided to order a plate!

Lite Home Bake said...

This reminds me of hokkien mee. Looks good!

choi yen said...

Tried once when I was at Taiping, too wet for my liking :P

Unknown said...

wow i love this char kuey teow. The ones in Singapore tend to be more dry. I like your version better.

mui mui said...

Chi, I never tasted Taiping CKT before but looking at yours I know it really good!

I made some of your pickled green chillies the other day. They taste so good. Do I keep them (bottled ones) in fridge or just in the room temperature?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Mui mui, you can just keep the pickled green chilies in room temperature, after a week still can't finish, then only put inside the fridge .

lena said...

i see that it also comes with char siew..next time if got time, must go and look out for this taiping wet fried koay teow

Ana Regalado said...

WendyinKK said...

Thanks for your submission.
Next time I want to try this in Taiping too.
Last time, I had a square Wat Dan Hor somewhere a bit out of Taiping town. the kway teow is cut square shaped, quite cute.

Audz said...
