How to Cook Penang Char Koay Teow

Penang Char Koay Teow – A Wok Around Asia Recipe Courtesy of Parkroyal Penang Resort

Folks, I’m very proud to present the first how-to video from my Wok Around Asia project, and it’s appropriately on Char Koay Teow (or Char Kway Teow), one of the most popular dishes from Malaysia’s street food capital of Penang. It’s different from my own version (mine is closer to what you would find in the southern part of the Malaysian peninsula, where I was raised), and it does not contain pork, which is fabulous for a non-pork eater like myself.

I’ve left the recipe format largely unaltered from what was given to me by Parkroyal Penang Resort, so we don’t lose too much in the translation, but by all means hit me up if you have any questions about any of it.

Here’s the video showing the stir-fry process from start to finish, which I think is crucial to capturing the technique in this dish. As a cook and former restaurateur, I target those who are serious about learning the craft of cooking, so if this sounds like you, enjoy the video and the recipe that follows 😉
