Famous in Penang, the "Aunty's" Char Koay Teow

Either a local Penangite or a tourist that visits Penang, everyone knows about the famous Char Koay Teow炒粿條 or fried rice noodle that is located at Lorong Selamat. This stall is a hot topic among everyone that I know, that the Char Koay Teow here is definitely the best despite the arrogant or bad attitude of the "Aunty". Hmmm... curious!

The famous Char Koay Teow is located in front of the Kafe Heng Huat興發茶室. Just look for the aunt that is wearing a red hat! No guessing, the price is listed on the signboard. We've of course ordered the plates that cost RM 11 each. I personally think that the fried rice noodle is not really expensive because it consists of dried sausages, cockles, bean sprout, egg and 4 big prawns. The "Aunty's" Char Koay Teow has a nice aroma from the char-frying and it's also tasty with a good balance between the saltiness of the soy sauce and the spiciness of the chili paste. Looking to the red colour, mine is requested with added chili! The additional chili is not really a good idea as my rice noodle is more wet and slimy. Anyway, it's truly hot and spicy!

I've decided to try out the Ais Kacang红豆冰 here. The ingredients are just too less whereby there's only a few red beans despite it's supposed to be a "Red Bean Ice". It's a cooling dessert during the hot sunny day but it's definitely not a delicious one.

They provide only dine-in service, no take-away is allowed. The customers are allowed to order if only with a table's number. There's quite a lot of "Don't" yet we've enjoyed the Char Koay Teow here. One small sadness is that we've got a summon for the parking.
