Zion Road Char Kway Teow

 This is a story of how I tracked down Zion Road Char Kway Teow via my nose. Just to start off, I am well known among my friends as a blur sotong. So I found the address of the famous Zion Road Char Kway Teow from Google : 18 Zion Road. And when I arrived at the exact address using Google Map app, it was an old building that wasn't lit and looked haunted. Luckily, common sense prevailed in me not to enter it. Suddenly, there was a whiff of Char Kway Teow from the end of the road. The recognizable frying of the eggs was in the air. So my friend and I walked towards the direction where it was coming from. And tada! We found the famous Char Kway Teow. Turned out 18 was the stall number at this Zion Riverside Food Centre of which the address is 70 Zion Road.

While waiting for uncle to fry our Char Kway Teow, we ordered chicken wings and sugar cane juice from other stalls. The chicken wings were so-so but I loved the sugar cane juice. Think it's hard for sugar cane juice to go wrong, especially with oily food.

If there was only one last meal I could have, it would be Char Kway Teow. My rationale is since I were to die anyway, away with those second thoughts on high calorific food. And Zion Road Char Kway Teow would be in my list. Sweet and salty black soya sauce that coated on each kway teow or rice noodles were a culmination of uncle's experienced culinary skill at the wok. The fragrant fried eggs were to die for, and so were the big pieces of cruchy fried pork lard. And those fish cakes, they couldn't be more fresh. It might not be the most aesthetically pleasant mixture but it was certainly one of the most mouth-watering mixture. For the health conscious, I could not empathize with but say resistance is futile. One could not help but ask, "Could we have another serving?" Life is short so enjoy it. 5/5

And yes, I concur with the many newspaper cuttings that were proudly displayed that it is a die-die must eat!
