We all know and love one of the best dishes out there, Kuey Teow but Char Kuey Teow is honestly on another level to me. Instead of it being dry, it’s wet and undeniably tasty. No wonder it’s a popular dish in this country. Sometimes, you’ll order ‘Char Kuey Teow Special’ just so you can have some shrimp on the side or even kerang as well! If you’re hungry and craving for some like me, let’s check out these top 9 Char Kuey Teow places around Klang Valley!
1. Mali’s Corner
Let’s kick it off with Mali’s Corner Char Koay Teow which is obviously famous for their Char Koay Teow basah. Take a look at their menu and you’ll be drooling with their choices, you can have the regular Char Koay Teow or top it off with some kerang or udang and make it special. Totally would go for Char Koay Teow Kerang because who doesn’t love that? And if you bring a friend along but they’re not a huge enthusiast for Char Koay Teow, they can opt for Koay Teow, Nasi Kak Wok and even Nasi Lemak.

2. Wok It
Now, Wok It is an interesting place. This Malaysia’s first crowdfunded restaurant is in Bangsar and Subang for you to try out! You can either dine-in, takeaway or delivery. Just choose the ingredients and they will absolutely ‘wok it’ for you. If you’re a first timer, get 10% when ordering off their website but I think after this, you’ll be a frequent customer for Wok It. You’re able to choose your own ingredients such as choice of carbs, veggies, proteins and sauce and they work their magic to make it the best food you’ll ever have. It’s served in a box and you can even have rice bowls too to fill up your tummy. Check out their website or visit their restaurants for a wholesome experience!
