Someone was asking about where the Char Kway Teow in Margaret Drive moved to?
There are only very few char kway teow stalls where you can spend your precious calories on nowadays. It's good to see that at 62, this char kway teow uncle is still going strong. He has been frying the dish since 1967 and like many hawkers, he used to fry with a charcoal fire on a pushcart, always running away from the ‘dae gu’ (health inspectors). He got caught so many times that he became friends with the inspector. I suspect that perhaps the dae gu might be a char kway teow fan too! Since settling at the former Margaret Drive Food Centre, this uncle has been getting a steady stream of fans and you can easily spot his stall from the long queue that starts to form from around 5pm when he starts frying.
