Covid-19 MCO : Day #98 (Penang CKT)


This week I am eating a lot of noodles. Yep, that's a whole lot of carbs going into my system. I am already fat so a few more plates of char koay teow or wat tan hor or whatever is not going to make much difference. Just eat lah!


I walked over to Yu Tao Xuan Restaurant@Damansara Uptown (formerly Restoran Yok Tho Hingfor a late lunch.  I remembered they had Penang Char Koay Teow on their menu.


I asked the server what is the difference between the Premium (RM12.00) and the Luxurious (RM18.00). Apparently the more expensive one is a bigger serving and she told me that the Premium is good for one person.


As usual, I like kopi o ais kosong. Unfortunately it was so diluted. Ugh! While waiting for my CKT, I noticed they have a  special drinks menu.


Dalgona Coffee, a drink that was viral during the start of the MCO. But judging from their diluted kopi o, I don't know if the fancy ones are a better bet.


My CKT was served and wah...I did not expect two big prawns and so many cockles! I had a taste of the koay teow and oh my, it was good. Lots of wok hei and flavor.


The two prawns were very fresh. Portion size of this CKT is also generous.


I have not eaten cockles for a very long time and yes, I enjoyed these a lot. This Penang CKT got standard lah, can come and eat again when the craving hits.


Meanwhile, my cat is still sleepy.

  2. Wah, the prawns are really big! Hmmmm I feel like eating ckt again! Hahaha but won't have your big prawns. Yes, you are right. Eat one more plate won't make a difference. So eat away! Carpe diem!

    1. Dunno if you will like this because it has deep wok hei which you dislike.

    2. I don't care for wok hei but having wok hei doesn't put me off the dish cos I m gluttony like that.

  4. OMG, I've not seen a plate of CKT with so much see hum (someone's gonna be very happy when he sees this!). So, was that premium or luxurious? ;) If it's premium in terms of price and portion (certainly worth the price), it's luxurious in terms of ingredients. It looks so luxurious I hope I can get to taste this plate of CKT that's full of wok hei and flavour one day. If you didn't say the kopi-o was diluted, I wouldn't have guessed since it looked so black.

  8. OH. MY. GOSH. i've been craving this crazily for the past three months. every time i order CKT from restaurants nowadays, the cockles are completely missing (even when the menu says it has cockles), or not fresh to the point of tasting rotten, or so shrivelled until they're barely discernible. this plate in your photograph is so inspiring, i know exactly what i'm having for lunch today (really!). THANK YOU! :D

  10. Karbonhidrat çok kötü kilo yapıyor. Kontrollü yemek lazım.

    1. karbonhidratlar çok kolay kilo almamı sağlıyor! Bu yüzden daha az yemem gerekiyor.

  12. I don't fancy siham and size of the prawns doesn't really matter to me too, so both premium and luxurious CKT from this restaurant are not for me :P
