No. 18 Zion Road Char Kway Teow

Everyone get cravings. It’s not just the prerogative of pregnant woman. Just as we would give in to any of the demands, however absurd they may be, of the mother of our children, we always give in to the weird cravings that our tummy calls out for without complaints.

On my last trip back to Singapore, I had one of those cravings. It was 10pm and I had just landed in Changi from Perth. I was hungry. And the meal that my tummy called out for, was not a five course French dinner or a plate of Italian pasta, it was a plate of potentially artery-clogging plate of Char Kway Teow (CKT)

Yes, I was craving for a plate from the old man that specializes in one dish, and one dish only at No. 18 Zion Road Hawker Centre.

I am confident that all of us have our favourites when it comes to specific hawker dishes, and the old adage where, One man’s meat is another man’s poison, holds true in this case. Some like theirs with lots of dark sauce, others like it white (or plain) – me; Some like theirs with only a sparingly amounts of chilli, others with lots of it – again, me!

Whatever your preference is, if you have not tried the CKT from Zion Road yet, make sure you plan for a trip soon! By the way, be prepared for a queue if you go during peak hours (and sometimes, off-peak hours too! There was a queue of 6 people when I arrived at 10.30pm)

P.S. No.18 is actually a misnomer since his stall is actually located at Stall 17! But it’s hard not to see the stall anyway – it’s located closet to the main road, facing Great World City.
