海记Hai Kee teochew Char Kway Teow ....... "Hums" extravaganza

This one evening, a few of my colleagues decided to visit Commonwealth Ave Cooked Food Centre for the popular Char Kway Teow. To visit this stall, prepare to wait in the queue for 30minutes for your food. "Hum" lovers do pay Hai Kee a visit and ask for 50 cents extra "hums". You'll definitely get "hum" high.

"Hums" Extravaganza in the Char Kway Teow
I can count about 20 or so "Hums" (translated as cockles in Hokkien).
This is the highlight of the char kway teow from Hai Kee.

My S$3 plate of Char Kway Teow
Even though there's only "hums", bean sprouts and eggs
as the main ingredients, the char kway teow was superb!

The Long Queue at Hai Kee
The uncle took the pain to cook the char kway teow
one plate at a time. This maintained the char kway
teow's consistency and also the reason for the long queue.
