Chua Brother Homemade Fish Ball - Jalan Bukit Bintang- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Chua Brother Homemade Fish Ball

Even though I love handmade fish ball's, this post won't contain anything about them unfortunately. This post is all about the Char Kway Teow!

The Malaysian Char Kuay Teow is a famous Penang hawker/street dish and is made from stir frying flat rice noodles in a mixed soya sauce with cockles, shrimp, lap cheong (Chinese sausages), eggs, bean sprouts and chives. Then the chilli spices can be added if you like it hot in which I requested for extra spicy. 

Within the Lot 10 shopping complex is a food court and this is not just any normal food court.  Hawker / Street style food cooked by Chinese families that have for generations, been trading on the streets of Malaysia and have been specially handpicked to open their stores within Lot 10.

If you want to savour the best of Kuala Lumpur's street/ hawker food, then here is the place to go with over 30 of the country's best eateries are located there. It is fully air-conditioned, modern, clean and indoors, which means you don't  have to melt and sweat under the scorching heat. Plus there is a whole lot to choose from such as popiah, porridge, wonton mee, duck rice, beef noodles and bak kut teh.
Don't expect hawker prices as you’re paying for the added convenience of not having to drive out to the outer suburbs like the Klang Valley,  to try out these famous dishes.

As the name suggests, the ‘Chua Brothers’, are famous for their fish balls but when I walked around the side bend, I saw a little sign beside their counter, that said they also make char kway teow . There were two options available including the ‘Penang Duck Egg Fried Kway Teow (RM 10.50)’ or ‘Penang Famous Fried Kway Teow (RM9.40)’ in which I chose to have latter.

After a few minutes, it was done. 

Big plate, average sized serving and not the most generous of portions but adequate. 

Found nothing special about the dish in that it was decent and had the right flavours, but lacked that wok hei flavour from the breath of the wok.They use the thinner version of white noodles and I found that it was very similar to the Thai Pad Thai. Even though I like beansprouts, there was just way too much of it.

wouldn't go out of my way to have this, as one can find better elsewhere, but worth a try if your staying in the city center  Then again, I can't complain as they, for generations, have been known for their famous fish ball's and that is what I will have on my next visit to Malaysia.
It does get very busy during lunch and dinner and finding a seat may be frustrating. Also, a lot of the popular dishes do sell out, so get there quick!
