Ah Leng Char Koay Teow
Location : Along jalan Dato Keramat. If your heading towards Komtar its after Padang Brown, right after Esso petrol station. It will be on your left, opposite Honolulu Cafe.
Email has been circulating claiming Ah Leng Char Koay Teow to be the best char koay teow in Penang. One plate of "keh liao" special char koay teow is a whopping RM8.50!
Whats special about Ah Leng is the huge prawns and added lai liu ha. This is definitely a very nice char koay teow, unique for its added lai liu ha.
I personally feel the best Char Koay Teow in Penang is at Lorong Selamat. Koay teow to koay teow, Lorong Selamat is still the winner. When i ask penangites many of them say they dun like Lorong Selamat. Y? Bcuz the Auntie lan si.
WTF......I asked if its the best char koay teow not the best Auntie. Not like i asking them to check out the Auntie, OK? I dun giv a damn how lansi she is! I asked if the char koay teow is the best! So, until now, at least for me, Lorong Selamat still has the best char koay teow in Penang.
4 out of 5
(P.S. : Kimberley Street Char Koay Teow at night also has lai liu ha. But this one nicer)
