Char Kuay Teow, aka stir fried flat rice noodle, which is famous among Indonesians, Malaysians and Singaporeans.

The char kuay teow is a Singaporean foodie's guilt and delight. Think flat rice noodle sprinkled with a generous helping of dark soy sauce and other salty condiments, fried together with a variety of ingredients such as fishcake, vegetables, lup cheong, sometimes seafood, eggs and the debatable cockles of (some) people's heart.

Char kway teow is traditionally stir-fried with fried pork lard. Originating from Chaozhou and initially served to overseas-born Chinese labourers in Southeast Asia, the dish was sold by fishermen, hence explaining the presence of different seafood in the dish. Over the years, cockles are now synonymous with char kuay teow. It has acquired a reputation of being unhealthy within modern contexts due to its high saturated fat content, but it doesn't make it less popular among foodies over the years.

Everything in moderation, we say!
