This delicious stir-fried noodle dish is made with flat rice noodles, commonly known as kway teow, along with a mix of ingredients such as clam, shrimp, sliced chicken or beef, bean sprouts, chives, and eggs.
The key to the dish is the flavorful sauce, which is a combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce, chili paste, and sometimes a dash of dark soy sauce for color.
The dish is cooked over high heat to give it a smoky flavor and is often topped with a sprinkling of fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime for added freshness.
Penang Fried Kway Teow is a must-try for any food lover visiting Lung Meng Foodcourt located near the Pujut Corner roundabout in Miri.
The foodcourt also serve dough stick (chakoi) and rice noodle soup.

The day start with my favourite breakfast – fried kway teow. And later in the afternoon, I drove to Bekenu in search for durian! Unfortunately, most of the durian have been sold in the morning, but I did manage to buy a few at the junction to Kampung Kejapil.
On the way back, upon request from this lady, we made a stop at the Miri Esplanade. Here are some photos taken yesterday.
