With almost 60 years of experience, Uncle Tan is hailed as the “king of noodles,” serving the best Char kway teow ever. Char kway teow is Malaysia’s most famous street food made from soy sauce, eggs, cockles, bean sprouts, Chinese sausage, and a couple of shrimp. Uncle Tan has been selling this crowd favorite for decades to people in and out of Penang, where his shop is. His fame started when he was interviewed by a local who posted the video online, and it immediately went viral. Today, at 79, Uncle Tan still serves this well-loved food with his bike pushcart.
