Since my Penang trip last year, I've been looking for a good place to have CKT. I wanted to find a place that could put up a fight against the Penangnites. So when Becky blogged about Robert's CKT in Section 17, I had to go check it out.
Restaurant Say Huat
Robert's CKT is located in Restaurant Say Huat, situated opposite the section 17 wet market. The market is converted into a parking lot towards mid day (so parking shouldn't be a problem).
I had a very late lunch that day (So I can't describe my experience with the lunch crowd). Anyway, even at 2.30pm, I had to wait 10minutes for my CKT.
Char Kuey Teow at Robert's
A plate of the lucious kuey teow goes for RM4 (small) and RM4.50 (big). After all the hype about it, I was a little disappointed. The CKT was good, just not as good as I expected.
I found it rather similar to Seng Lee at Jalan Batai Damansara Heights (expect that Seng Lee's was a lot more burnt). Both had the nice wok hei and came with prawns and cockles. Contrary to what people have been saving about Seng Lee, Seng Lee's CKT took a down turn when the old man frying the kuey teow was taken over by a younger woman. However, after a brief downturn, the kuey teow has oncemore became relatively good again.
All in all, I think the kuey teow was alright. This place certainly deserves a revisit. However, I still think that the Char Kuey Teow around KL/Selangor is no match for the ones found in Penang.

Pricing: About RM5 per person
