Mcalister Road Lam Heng Sister’s Char Koay Teow, one of the most famous Char Koay Teow in Penang. In terms of popularity among non-Penangties, it seems to be only second to the Lorong Selamat one. The Char Koay Teow was served with banana leave to enhance it’s fragrance, and with crab meat on top.
Ever since I was small, I would loved to have my breakfast here, as I don’t really know where to find a good plate of Char Koay Teow for breakfast that time. However, their quality had degraded over the years, and the consistency is not there too. Sometimes when you are lucky, the plate of Koay Teow you get will be nice (as in above average only). If you are not, the plate of Koay Teow you get will be very very normal, which makes you wonder, is this really one of the most famous in Penang? Besides, although the prawns used was consider big, but I find that the prawns is tasteless most of the time, and in most cases, not fresh. The same goes to the crab meat, it’s more like a decoration to me as it’s tasteless too. 6.6/10
