Just back from Singapore, and I lived on Char Kway Teow from the hawkers. My preference is with thin slices of chinese sausage and egg stir fried into the noodles.

Who makes it great in LA?

    Little Malaysia in El Monte on Peck Road has Chinese sausage and egg in their Char Kway Teow. I don't know how it compares to the dish in Singapore but it is a popular restaurant and my friend from Indonesia really likes it.

      Waaah...I talked to the folks at Singapore's Banana Leaf about offering this and other dishes (Hokkien Mee, etc). The guy said, "Yeah, my mom knows how to make that stuff," but kinda just put the issue aside. Where in El Monte is Little Malaysia (intersection?) Singapore food rules. I have no clue why it hasn't blown up in the US. I guess you just have to go there to get it.

        Here's their contact info:

        Phone: 626-401-3188
        Address: 3944 Peck Rd # 8 El Monte, CA 91732
        Cash only.

        Their version is pretty authentic. The only thing you'll miss is the fried crunchy bits of garlic.

        and a review I just posted for them:
