WHEN EVENING COMES.... It was around 5pm when we made a stop at Ayer Itam for the original Ah Leng Char Koay Teow. In Mandarin it was pronounced as Ah Loong meaning dragon but when translated, it becomes Ah Leng which has the same spelling with my name. LOL.... That is why I thought all along, this famous koay teow is manned by a lady. But no, it is actually from a man who is now over 80 years old, he opens his stall at the side of his house in Ayer Itam whereas his son has a stall along Jalan Kramat.
Since the father's stall opens in the evening, it is just nice for us to drop by and stuffed ourselves before going for our walk at the dam which is nearby. We were the first customers and we could choose our seating.... both inside and outside the house is equally hot, we compared the hot air and finally opted for the outside air instead of being under the aluminium roofing.
At the side of the house facing the road....
Food knows no bounds.. hot weather did not deter us from eating...
(no, that is not my son... just in case anyone is wondering) hahahaa..
He doesn't look 80, right? Still going strong....
My son had the special....
Came with 4 big prawns and mantis... RM14
I had the regular.... 2 big prawns, mini cockles, no presentation for RM9
Get what I mean when I said no presentation?
I did not edit anything... it was served like this, noodles to one side...
I miss Penang CKT!ReplyDelete
I will eat the special plus the normal for rm23 because for the special, I cannot see any kway teow and I want to eat kway teow! I have not eaten at this place.ReplyDelete
Hello, Ah Leng!!! Now I know your name. LOL!!!ReplyDelete
Who is that in the red pants, so trendy? Oh, you said he was not your son, so not Andy lah. Your girl's boyfriend? LOL!!!
The CKT looked so-so - the prawns were HUGE! WHAT? RM14.00!!! *faints*
Pay extra for the mantis and extra prawns....ReplyDelete
The CKT uncle looks young for his age. It must be the CKT business that keeps him occupied and youthful!ReplyDelete
Oh my. Drooling at the prawns. The operator sure looked healthy and strong in his 80s.ReplyDelete
