They have been at it since the 70s at the now defunct “New Market” off Upper Thomson Road. The little barefoot kid that ran around and served is now the wok master here with his aging folks. The noodle comes very roasty, looks dry but has a wistful moisture (very important in char kway teow). The flavour comes softly sweet but has a confident blast of umami from the fish sauce and seasoning used. The basic use of fish cakes, minuscule cockles (supplier issues in Singapore), Chinese sausage and bean sprouts is all that’s needed to bring this “uglilicious” dish to mastication heaven.
