Fried Soy Noodle

Do you think that this bowl of fried soy bean noodle looks like Penang Char Koay Teow (fried flat rice noodle)? I can tell you that it is. It tastes exactly the same as Penang CKT.

Personally, I prefer soy noodle than rice noodle, as it is packed with Protein and comparatively low in Carbohydrates. Besides, I like its smooth and springy texture. I have no idea where to find fresh soy noodle in Penang, so normally I just use dried soy noodle.

This is my entry to Presto Pasta Night #159 that is founded by Ruth of Presto Pasta Nights . The host of the week is Daphne of More Than Words.

J2Kfm, it supposed to be healthier. Soy noodle is good for diabetes patient as it is low in Carbohydrates.

Kathleen, it's not that popular compared to normal wheat noodle.

Tartelette, oh really? I hope you like this too.

tigerfish, physically it looks like koay teow after cooking. When it's dried, it looks like fat mee suah.

New Kid, you can get it from hypermarket where you can find mee suah.
