This wasn't exactly a random foodie trip, in fact we had it planned to go in search of this infamous 炒果条 stall  in Kulai. Had a tough time finding the place, but after a few spins around the neighbourhood we finally spotted it. 

It was located in a rather secluded location, away from the main street, away from the sight of most people. The stall is situated behind a hilly slope opposite AMBank, and poses a challenge even for the eagle-eyed. There are numerous blogs or forums out there, describing it to be opposite AMBank which in theory is accurate, but they lack the most crucial piece to complete the puzzle. I think my explanation would sum it all up ... On a hill opposite AMBank, with an ascending road sandwiched between it and the shophouses. Follow up along the road and the stall will be to your left.

Business is brisk so please be reminded to head there early if you want to get your share, and do note they sell only limited plates of char kuey tiao daily. A rather peculiar method of doing business in my opinion.

Some people, including yours truly will attest to the fact that it is fried with too much lard, while the rest would contest otherwise, lard brings out the taste and aroma of the food. I find the char kuey tiao mediocre, and not as mouth-watering as described by fellow bloggers/forumers. 
Rating: 5.5/10

Price: 6.5/10
Service: 5.5/10 
Conclusion: Food is mediocre and the lady boss has a lousy attitude. Personally, I feel I wouldn't be back again but fellow Kulai friends think otherwise, a place for their comfort food I reckon. For those interested to try, I've attached the GPS coordinate below for convenience.
