Visited the No.61, Penang Char Koey Teow ????? stall (N1.48696 E103.76793) in Taman Sri Tebrau Hawker Center (??????) sometime ago. The stall started operation more than 20 years ago, and Mr Khor (the owner) serving one of the Good Penang Char Koey Teow within Johor Bahru.

Mr Khor is a friendly person and we had chat with him for a while to understand his Char Koey Teow business in the area. He said there are few stalls selling the same food in the hawker center, and all of the stalls have their own regular customers despite the different techniques of the cook and taste.

The plate of Char Koey Teow lively, smooth and infused with the unami flavour of the prawns, the flat rice noodles was fired with elusive of ‘Wok Hei’ (smoky wok fragrance) from the skilful handling of the heat from the stove, resulted in the most pleasing plate of Aromatic and Delicious Char Koey Teow.
Even the local JB soy sauce is different from Penang, which does not provide the exact same taste, but from the magic frying/tossing of Mr Khor…he overcome it and provide a unique version by himself.
This plate of Penang Char Koey Teow cost RM5.

The stall is running by Mr Khor and his son (Ryan Khor) during the evening. His son – Ryan Khor also operating another Char Koey Teow stall at the right side kopitiam of Maybank, Taman Daya in the day time. Ryan Khor version is very close to his father standard, but you have to taste it yourself.

If you are Penang Char Koey Teow lover, you have to try it when you happen around in Taman Sri Tebrau. Do let me know how you feel about the the Char Koey Teow from the stall or other stall within Johor Bahru by comment below, much appreciated. 🙂
