After the not-too-satisfying char kway tiao, we spotted another char kway tiao stall as we made our way back to the hotel, and this time, they fry it with duck egg!!!
Without hesitation, we ordered our second plate of Char Kw6ay Tiao with Duck Egg (RM6) within 2 hours 😮 To add on to the variety, we also ordered a Penang Laksa (RM5), and White Nutmeg Drink (RM2.30).
This plate of char kway tiao was so worth the calories! Something about the duck egg simply made this dish super flavourful 😀 The laksa sadly was lacking the sourness of the assam and was overly spicy for us.
But we were totally satisfied with the CKT alone! 😛

We were at the very same food court again!
This time, we were here to avoid the rain, and it was getting late, so we figured that we should grab a bite. The problem with food court was that it sells plenty of non local food, so we ended up with the local stall selling Char Kway Tiao (RM6.90).
They used normal chicken egg instead of duck egg, and though there was quite a bit of wok hei, there was also a fair bit of burnt egg and kway tiao..
Oops. Not too bad, if we skipped the burnt bits 😛
But of course this was a nice place to rest our sore feet and wait for the rain to stop. Not to mention there’s also nice air-con to cool our heated body down… 😛

We did a short getaway over the weekend to Malacca with my parents over the weekend.
Malacca has lots to offer but our last trip was more than 5 years ago. So we were quite lucky and thankful to have taken Luxury Coach because a guide was on board to share much about Malacca and its attractions when we were en route after Woodlands Checkout to Malacca. That helped to frame our expectations and refreshed some of our memories of the beautiful place.
While the speed of eating was definitely slower this time, we still managed to try a few things 😀
We were in Chinatown this evening and decided to go Maxwell Food Centre for dinner. The place was still buzzing with people having dinner/supper and whatever in between. The queue at Lao Ban Beancurd though was not to be found. Guess everyone has outgrown dou hua already?
