I think this is the best Char Kway Teow in Penang, which is located in Kampung Jawa. Although the most famous one of course is at "Lorong Selamat" but I find it sucks and expensive. Somehow it is no longer as good as it used to be. So, the fried Kway Teow at "Lorong Selamat" definitely not worth it and some more you could wait for hours.
The coffee shop name is called "WaHong Cafe" which is located at "Solok Kampung Jawa 6" as shown in above picture. It opens pretty early, I think even before 6 am. So every time when I have very early morning meeting, I come here for breakfast. It opens until noon too for lunch.
Food (Char Kway Teow) - 8/10
It comes with 2 big prawns but the taste of the prawns is better than the one in lorong selamat fried kway teow and it also cheaper in terms of the price. One very unique about this Char Kway Teow is, when the serving comes, it is like one kind one. The kway teow is only half or sometime just one quarter of the plate as shown in the picture below. I like to call this "k ying" (Cantonse slang refes to odd looking shape) char kway teow.
Drink - 7/10
The drink is not bad, better than a lot of coffee shop in Penang. As usual, I enjoy my "Teh Si" very much.
I can only say "Must try Char Kway Teow" if you come to Penang. :)
