Dinner at Chulia Street

Chulia Street Char Koay Teow: The Expert-Maker is now in semi-retirement and opens irregularly at irregular times. So it was extremely fortuitous we manage to catch him in action. Papa Chow was so overcome with glee he immediately ordered three plates of Char Koay Teow for each of us without prior consultation. This miffed Mama Chow at first, but she understood the rareness of this opportunity. It just had to be done.
Also forces to be reckoned with, the Wan Tan Mee stall & the Curry Mee stall. There are two Wan Tan Mee stalls in close proximity: Mama Chow likes both.
I love the lop-sided placement; it's a good indication of the speed and wild, mad, frenetic energy of the fryer: I love its urgency.
