Doli Kuey Teow Goreng

Kuey Teow Goreng @ Doli Kuey Teow Goreng, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, KL

the hefty special kuey teow goreng for a whopping RM10

Those from Taiping would have heard of the infamous Doli Kuey Teow Goreng, the halal version considered as one of the best by many around. Boasting a legacy of 35 years, it got named Doli, as the owner's wife thought it was catchy. Now the son has opened up this place at Taman Tun Dr Ismail, usually more famous for their kitchen and furniture shops in front of TTDI Plaza. I must admit I was curious to give Doli a try, since I missed out in giving it a shot in Taiping once.

The menu is quite limited - two choices of kuey teow goreng, the "biasa" or ordinary variety for RM4.50 and the special version that is priced at RM10, nasi ayam, mee rebus, kuey teow soup, mee kari and sup ayam.

the biasa version for RM4.50

The fried kuey teow here comes with cockles, prawns, bean sprouts, eggs and spring onions except of course it's pork free hence no lard is used to fry it. It's not very dry but definitely better than the usual Malay styled fried kuey teow I've tasted before (almost soupy ones!). What's unusual is how they don't add chilli paste to fry their kuey teow goreng but instead it's served with soy sauce with chopped chillies. There's two types, the ordinary one with tiny prawns and cockles while the more premium and luxe version for double the price at RM10 gives you a mountain of larger prawns. It's also a bigger portion as the normal one comes in a teeny weeny plate.

While the fried noodles were tasty, I felt it lacked the wok hei or breath of wok compared to say the other
halal kuey teow goreng at Restoran Jamal in Kelana Jaya. That wok hei part is one of the hallmarks of well fried noodles and with these two plates, they were sorely lacking as it tasted lukewarm vs piping hot from the wok. Definitely dissapointing even though my plate came laden with prawns and cockles. If you're looking for good halal char kuey teow goreng, my advice is for you to head towards Kelana Jaya as you'll definitely get a more satisfying meal there.
