Right, sometimes there are so many stalls within a food centre that you don’t know which to order from. So being Singaporeans what do we do? We look at the Q, if that particular stall has long queue, we follow. The herd, or “kiasu” mentality. On my previous visit to Lau Pa Sat, it was during a weekday lunch crowd period, so the queue was ‘super’ long. I didn’t order it back then, since i wasn’t really craving for char kway teow that time.

Thus, when i went back on my second visit on a Satarday afternoon, there was not a soul in sight, and despite wolfing down two burgers, and two fries, my friend and i couldn’t resist trying since there wasn’t any queue, and if you don’t try, you will find it a pity right?

even ieatishootipost gives this char kway teow 4.5/5. how can you miss not eating this yummy char kway teow?
The fried oyster omelette is always my favourite when I went to food court type of place with a gang of friends. We can choose a lot of food and share among each other. The omelette is Very fragrant but the flour is not cooked, so the mixture inside is a bit weird and geli. The oyster given is only a few, so it is consider a bit expensive, and the flavour is very salty, maybe the salt is not evenly mix. I think I will still offer when there are large gang of friends there, as I love the fragrant smell of egg omelette.
I should admit that this is only the 2nd time I\'ve ever tried char kway teow, but it was infinitely better than the first time (a stall at Pasir Panjang FC). I can see now why people say this is such a sinful dish -- it was sweet, savoury and oh so oily - but I couldn\'t stop eating it.i especially liked the slices of Chinese sausage - they had a smoky, sweet flavour and added a new chewiness compared to the slick noodles and egg. This hawker also makes really good black carrot cake
There was a long queue at this stall, mostly queuing for the char kway teow. The queue was so long, that people started to crowd around the stall. The stall owner did not and could not recognize the people queuing, and thus people simply started to take the food without following the queue. Apart from the service, the food was quite good. The noodles were only slightly oily and the dark sauce was sweet. The cockles were very fresh too. It comes with slices of waxed sausages, which makes it even tastier.
