Penang Char Kuey Teow

Met my long time blog friend Austin Bush of Real Thai this afternoon, who came to Malaysia on an assignment for the Lonely Planet guidebook. We had Char Kuey Teow.

Quoting Austin’s blog, my Char Kuey Teow was better than yours.

When it comes to hawker food (street food), real foodies know that Malaysia owns it. And when it comes to really good hawker food, Penang owns it. Enough said.

My Char Kuey Teow recipe is here.

    I live in a place where fresh Asian ingredients are hard to come by without having to travel. Would you recommend certain substitutions… such as Sriracha for the chillies?

    Do you know of a Malay hawker dish called a-chee or a-chi from Penang? It’s like a batter ed mix placed into a caged ladle ( similar to a steamboat ladle but flatter ), a prawn in the middle, deep fried and served with a satay sauce, similar to a mamak rojak. I haven’t had this dish for more than 30 years since moving to Australia. I’d love the recipe if you got one. Thanks.
