Food Trip Friday: Char Kway Teow

This is one of the many Malaysian/Singaporean foods I miss so much. My friends and I used to eat it every Sunday for lunch during our get together day. I just made it for dinner tonight to satisfy my craving for this dish!

(Malaysian Singaporean stir-fried rice noodles with shrimp)

Char kway teow, which means "fried flat noodles," is a popular and cheap dish found in Malaysia and Singapore. Hearty and filling, it started out as a poor laborer's meal. Over time its popularity has spread. Char kway teow was originally stir-fried in lard and it got a reputation as unhealthy. But using vegetable oil makes a much healthier dish with much of the flavor. Other spellings: chow kueh teow, char koay teow, char kuay teow.
