The star of Cantonese stir-fries and Singaporean hawker dishes, Kway Teow is also known as flat rice noodles. Kway Teow literally means ricecake strips, which is exactly what they are – strips of noodles made from rice flour. Generally, Kway Teow is sold in folded oiled sheets so you can slice them according to the width you need. Alternatively, you can purchase them pre-cut, like the Kang Kang Noodles version.
Kway Teow is believed to have originated in the town of Shahe in the city of Guangzhou. This noodle is typically used in southern Chinese cuisine however other Southeast Asian nations such as Singapore have adopted the noodle into their own style of cooking.
The most popular dish using Kway Teow in Singapore is the local hawker Char Kway Teow. High in saturated fat, the dish was in the past most popular with labourers as it was low cost and a cheap source of energy and nutrients. Nowadays it’s a popular choice for all people of Singapore.
