Kakilang Char Koay Teow Is All The Rage
Post by Chiefeater Stan21
This is the current hype amongst Malaysians in Melbourne - Kakilang Char Koay Teow. People are travelling far and wide to St Kilda road just to try the CKT and then comparing it to Lulu's CKT in the CBD.
So, the kiasu-ism in me had me dragging my family to take a tram to St Kilda and walking 5 minutes to the shop. Lo and behold we were greeted by Malaysians living here. Really kakilang with conversations all too familiar to us. It felt like we were home momentarily.
Yes is the answer to your question of 'is there a queue' and waiting time was approx. 45 mins. from the time we put our name on the list to putting food in our mouths. So patience is a virtue.
The verdict? In my humble opinion, this CKT is better than Lulu's...tastier in a sense. Big prawns, chinese sausage and by just adding that few 'droplets' of cockles will set you back AUD2...making it AUD19.90 a plate. The thing is, let's not convert shall we?
The kuih talam was really good too - not too sweet, soft but firm enough to hold. 'Ngam-ngam' I must say. The teh ping was perfect because it was 'kurang manis', without asking :)
Bottom line is 'will I be back?'. I think I will at Kakilang Char Koay Teow!
