Snake temple is one of the tourist attractions in Penang island, built in 1850 in the memory of the renowned Chinese monk Chor Soo Kong. Just right opposite the snake temple is a kopitiam where you can find this char koay teow (char koay tiao) stall.

The unique thing about the char koay teow (char koay tiao) here is that the prawns are fried up front in large quantity before being added to the freshly cooked char koay teow.

Maybe by frying them separately instead of being cooked together with the char koay teow will maintain the freshness of the prawns.

This actually reminds us of similar technique used in Kimberly Street Char Koay Teow where the mantis prawns are also fried separately.

The size of the prawns is above average and not those small ones you typically get else where. You will get about 3-4 pieces of prawns in each plate. The Char Koay Teow is priced at RM2.70 per plate

    This is quite famous at the Bayan Lepas Area and it is good one at the Area.

    But I prefered the CKT at town area, Anson Road, Prantis Prawn CKT, and Sister CKT.

    Penang CKT still the best.. Yum...
