After oo kio, we moved on to the next station for our makan-makan trip, which is about 10 minutes away.

We identified and talked about the famous food available as we passed by that area, like beef koay teow at chulia street/beach street junction, nasi kandar beside the Masjid Kapitan Keling, Chulia Street stalls (night time), Kimberley Street Char Koay Teow, Dessert Stalls, Koay Chap etc..

Eventually we reached our third destination… eiu char koay. Well, I have heard of this place before that the eiu char koay here is quite famous but I could not locate the shop until Fei Fei brought us here

It seems that they have moved to this new shop already. The old shop was just a stone throw away. This eiu char koay shop is at Cintra Street, right before Wisma Cintra. You could never miss the shop as they fry those eiu char koay right in front of the shop.

You can see two ladies frying and drying the eiu char koay till crispy and crunchy while another guy sitting opposite them preparing the eiu char koay to be fried.

Also, there is another young guy sitting at one corner doing nothing, just reading the magazine the whole time. (I wonder why he never helps out with those chores…hmmm, lazy bum!). Also, we felt this guy quite “l*nsi” because he chided us for taking pictures. Of so many places we have taken pictures, this is the only guy that ever told us off…. L*nsi!

The eiu char koay can be quite oily so you might want to use some tissue papers to dry the oil away, just like what Tam Ciak did and finished our packet of tissue!

The best thing about this eiu char koay here is that they will still remain crunchy even after few hours later. We were told that they use coconut oil instead of palm oil, hence the eiu char koay taste crispier. We also observed the oil they use to fry are quite clean, probably they do change it quite frequent.

Each piece of eiu char koay sells at RM1. Fei Fei told us it used to cost RM0.80 only. Hmmm … inflation huh? This shop is open from 12pm till 8.30pm daily.

    Greedy is the word best to describe the lady operator of this shop. It is fair to increase price in line with inflation in general and price of flour in particular but she should be fair to her customers by not reducing the size of yuew thiaw she makes in reverse proportion to the price increase. I have stopped patronizing the shop since the price was increased to 90cts.

    I think you should try the one in Raja Uda. That's the best among the stall that I'd tried. After awhile the Eiu Char Koay still very very very crispy. BTW, per piece is only RM0.70 cheaper than here by 30 cents. :)

    If talking about Eiu Char Koay, there are another good one in the island which located in Bayan Baru wet market food court. This fella only sell for dinner time onwards.

    Mext to it there's a Char Bee Hoon stall which sells plenty of Tong Sui. Try to eat the Eiu Char Koey with the peanut soup! Fantastic!

    Kopi O, bak kut teh or even hokkien mee.... dip any of these eiu char koay into the soup and then take a bite, it does feel heavenly and delicious...

    in terms of rising prices for the eiu char koay, either we buy or we stop buying. But even if you stop buying, it won't stop the lady from selling because the demand is so high for the eiu char koay.. we normally lament the increase in price for a while and then we're likely to patronize the stall again

    ... of course, we can go for alternatives which is less expensive like the one in Raja Uda. Then again, distance btw Raja Uda in mainland and Chulia Street is not near, price difference may not make up to the trip you have to make ...
