#3 Day Night Fried Kway Teow

Said to be one of the most underrated char kway teow in Singapore, Day Night Fried Kway Teow puts a slightly modern twist to an old-school dish. This plate of char kway teow is different from the rest thanks to its use of narrow kway teow instead of its broader counterpart. The dish is a well-balanced mix of sweet, savoury and tangy with a mild wok hei flavour, and some call it a mix between char kway teow and pad thai!
