Vegetarian char kwey teow that is toothsome

[Pixs copyright Ewe Paik Leong]

First-timers who order from the char kwey teow stall in Blue Boy Vegetarian Restaurant are often taken aback that the hawker is a Cantonese-speaking Indian chappie named Ah Wah. A lao jiao in the art of churning out delectable char kwey teow, he has been featured in a Chinese newspaper. By comparison with non-halal char kwey teow, Ah Wah’s fare has the handicap of not having sliced sausages or pork lard or any meat ingredient. Nevertheless, it is no push-over. Judged as a vegetarian fare, it is excellent. There’s also vegetarian bak kut teh from another stall that is so-so, but many people come here for Ah Wah’s magical stir-fried flat-rice noodles.

Getting there: You won’t be able to see the restaurant if you arrive along Jalan Tengkat Tong Shin. Better park opposite the Swiss-Garden Hotel on Jalan Pudu, walk down the side lane at Plaza Magnum. The restaurant is in the back of the once-notorious block of flats.

Many long years ago, Blue Boy Mansion housed many brothels. Thankfully, the vice element in this apartment building has been wiped out because of raids by the cops. Thanks for visiting my blog.
