Chef Lai Noodle Bar - Quick Chop!

Chef Lai Noodle Bar - Grote St, Adelaide 

Do you miss Char Kway Teow from old Kopi Tim down lower Gouger St since the change in owners? With its plump seafood, charred and smokey flavour making you wish for that holiday in Malaysia? Well I was, until my parents tracked down the old owners! 

Since moving on from Kopi Tim, they have set up Chef Lai Noodle Bar in the side street off Grote Street between Chatime and Hong Fat BBQ.  Here you can get all your traditional Malaysian dishes such as Char Kway Teow, Mee Goreng, Hainanese chicken rice and more.

Given how much I missed having the traditional Char Kway Teow from Kopi Tim, I was probably in a state of delirious happiness to have found my beloved again and hence, the score for food I'm about to give is probably full of bias. However, that said, the service is, as usual, rubbish with our group actually being told to leave once we had finished our meal so they could re-use the table. Ambiance is pretty much non-existent, because you eat and leave - chop chop!

Jess gives Chef Lai Noodle Bar 13/20 chops on The Chopping Board.
