Seafood Char Koay Kak @ Batu Lanchang Market



Located inside the Batu Lanchang Market foodcourt, there's a seafood char koay kak stall near the entrance that is closest to wet market building. This stall has been operating for the past 20 years by a couple. You can see a lot of certificates hanging at their stall. All of them belongs to this uncle. They were the recognition given to uncle's food, his fried koay kak.

When I was still a little kid, my parents used to bring me along during their weekly marketing trip to this market. Everytime without fail, we dropped by this foodcourt for our afternoon tea before the marketing task began. :) My mum used to bring along our own ingredients like squids and prawns. Uncle will add all these seafood when he fried our koay kak without extra charge. Of course you can request uncle to add other seafood based on the varieties that he has.

Hubby had not taste this koay kak before, so I brought him there for a try. He ordered a regular koay kak that cost for RM3.20. Not cheap, anyway.


Besides the normal ingredients like bean sprout, chai po and egg, you'll find 2 prawns, crab meat stick and some fish ball slices. If you are wondering why you can't find the ingredients, hehe....they are all hidden beneath the koay kak. So don't get disappointed.

Well, the taste is still above average. It's fragrant and full of "wok hei". However, the serving is quite small. It may not able to fill your stomach if you just have one plate. :P

I realized too that so many of the hawker food has gone through some sort of evolution. Laksa with fish balls, Curry Mee with chicken, squid, etc, Hokkien Mee with roasted pork, chicken feet? Gosh! Even the ice kacang is with god knows how many ingredients inside. I guessed that's the trend now for "add ons" like McD :P

batu lancang remains one of my fav hawker food stalls. there's something for everyone. chicken rice, char kuey teow, koay kak, nyonya kuih, pasembur, chee cheong fun, nasi tomato. and all of those are GOOD.

thanks, you re-ignite my passion for Pg food. :)

Criz Lai, yes agree that "add on" is kind of trend. But, Hokkien mee with chicken feet? A bit weird, haha....

j2kfm, most of the food are quite delicious there. Even the kuih selling at the stall next to the wantan mee is very famous.

panangtuapui, may be we bump into each other before, just that we don't know who is who, haha...:D

daphne, yes it's similar to char koay teow, just that koay teow is replace by koay kak. Koay kak is a kind of "flour cake".

Agreed, this is one of the best char koay kak ever! Odd timing though - my craving usually kicks in around breakfast or dinner time and by then, this stall would be closed!

550ml jar of faith, it's been so long I didn't drop by the place because of the same reason - their odd operating time. I can't only dropping bu during weekends.

Oooo...Batu Lanchang market is full of local delights!~
One of the popular ones here is the 'Cheh Hu' - did you try that? :D

it's been ages didn't visit this place already. RM3.20 for a plate like that is kinda expensive, huh??

Christy, cheh hu - the pasembur? Yes, I tried it before, but it was long long time ago.

New kid, kind of expensive lor, cuz the serving is quite small.
