Joo Chiat Place Fried Kway Teow: Popular CKT Stall Since The 1950s

11th June 2024

Joo Chiat Place Fried Kway Teow is a popular char kway teow stall 


Joo Chiat has been known for being a hip place, home to many popular cafes and restaurants such as The Feather Blade Steakhouse & Seafood Bar and Cafe Natsu. However, traces of the food hub’s humble beginnings can still be found in the corners of the district. One such place is Joo Chiat Place Fried Kway Teow, a hawker stall serving char kway teow since the 1950s.

Ms. Ling, the lady boss, runs the stall single-handedly from Tuesday to Thursday. She has been diligently whipping up countless plates of fried noodles since she inherited the business from her father. As soon we placed our orders, we saw a huge old wok clanging, followed by Ms. Ling deftly tossing the ingredients with a confident flick while adjusting the seasonings by touch. 


Like many char kway teow (CKT) stalls, you only have fried kway teow on the menu here. Their Fried Kway Teow comes in three sizes: Small ($4.50), Medium ($5.50), and Big ($6.50). Even though the medium-sized portion we got looked relatively small, it was packed with lots of Chinese sausages, fishcake slices, and fresh cockles.


An eggy aroma wafted as I took the first bite. The chunks of fluffy omelette, coupled with the faint wok hei fragrance, made every bite moreish.


The noodles were a lighter shade, possessing a delicate flavour compared to a CKT made with dark soya sauce. The chilli within also added a slightly spicy kick.


As we dined in, we absorbed the atmosphere of an old hawker centre. The worn plastic chairs, well-trodden floor, and overgrown weeds on the side of the road evoked a sense of nostalgia. It’s certainly worth a visit if you’re craving an affordable meal in the area.
