Peter Fried Kway Teow Mee : not as good as expected

Peter Fried Kway Teow Mee started by Peter Lim, the founder, in a coffee shop at Jago Close. The coffee shop is along East Coast Road and near to Holy Family Church, before moving to Tanjong Pagar Food Centre. Benny, his son, started to help out before eventually took over the stall. He is manning it single-handedly now. The stall was quite popular when they were in Katong but not so now though there is still a queue during lunch. I tried it once a long time ago but I did not have much impression now. 

We were there on a Sunday. While ordering Lor Mee from Soon Heng Food Delights, I could hear the clanging sound of the wok from afar. My dining companion suggested, "Let's go check out the Fried Kway Teow." We decided to go with the larger portion of Traditional Teow Chew Fried Kway Teow at $4. There is a smaller portion at just $3. There is also Penang Style Fried Kway Teow at $4/$5 and Seafood Fried Kway Teow at $4/$5.

The Traditional Teow Chew Fried Kway Teow uses a black sweet sauce with ingredients like fishcake, bean sprouts, and vegetable. As my dining companion does not eat cockles, it was requested to be left out. It was served with a piece of lime. This is likely the first time that I ever encountered this. 

My dining companion said, "The sweetness from the black sweet sauce is quite light." He continued, "Maybe it should not be served with a lime. It must be the cause of the mild sweet taste." He said, "It might go better if it is served with the Penang Style Fried Kway Teow."

The fried kway teow was quite moist but not quite flavorful. My dining companion said, "I do not think I will order this again."

  1. Have you tried the TPY Lorong 5 food center's two side-by-side CKT stalls?

  2. Hmm, can't remember but they are not opened on Sundays I remember. Side track a bit. I went there yesterday and I saw one uncle carrying a large bag of curry puffs, he told me he bought it at 甜甜屋, which sells desserts. I bought a potato and sardine and its just 70 cents each! And they are huge! The sardine one is a bit salty and the potato is normal but for 70 cents, its value for money! No wonder the uncle bought a huge bag of them. It's pipping hot too.

  3. Thanks. As a fan of curry puffs, I will definitely go and check it out.
