So, we had the cendol biasa (RM1.60) - nevertheless, it was still delicious. I found the coconut milk here to be slightly thicker, richer and the cendol strands are slightly salted, so it was a nice balance with the gula melaka syrup.
The chewy texture from the cendol itself, with the grainy texture from the red bean, an addition of sticky glutinous rice for a salty touch, accompanied by the sweet and chilly coconut water are perfect. Be sure to try them earlier as their pulut selling fast.
tapi tang rasa.... awok memang bagi harapan tinggi kat Cendol dengan Pasembor kat sini.... tapi awok hampa.... awok rasa agak kureng.... tapi masih lagi dalam kategori sedap.....
We went for the Cendol pulut (RM2 per bowl), which came with pulut which has been slightly toasted / roasted. The portion here is slightly larger than the other place, and the pulut does lend a nice salty contrast to the sweet cendol as well as adding some texture.
pendapat peribadi aku... aku rasa cendol dia biasa je... macam kita makan cendol tempat lain jugak... aku pernah rasa ada cendol yang lebih sedap dari sini kot... lepas tu aku rasa cendol dia macam manis sangat la...huhu.. sebab aku ni jenis tak kuat manis sangat...
Orait. Rasa yang ini lain dari yang Penang Road. Yang ini ada rasa pure. Rasa ori. Takda campur adok apa-apa. Tak kilat, tak berlemak macam yang Penang Road. Ramai tak suka tapi dia ni ada keistimewaanya sendiri. Bandingan macam Durian Blackthorn dengan Durian Kampung. Old school. Teringat zaman sekolah dulu.
The banana fritters had a nice, crisp batter and were soft and sweet on the inside. I was pleasantly surprised to find fried cempedak here as we don't see them often in KL these days.
PSL Goreng Pisang (PSL炸香蕉) used to operate a roadside stall, but now it has a permanent shop at Jalan Pasar, Taiping.
P.S.L. Goreng Pisang is a well known goreng pisang since 10-20 years back. Their gorend pisang is really nice and sweet. The batter is not thick but crispy. Before they moved to this shop, they fried and sell their goreng pisang at the roadside behind a building. However, they still sell their goreng pisang at roadside as well at this shop.
Pusat Penjaja Taiping is a hawker center at Jalan Tupai, right across the busy street from Novotel Taiping.
Self-service is practised here, for you can’t expect the man who runs his stall alone to hop all over the rectangular-shaped food centre and earn a meagre sum of RM2.00/USD0.60 per plate of CCF. Doused liberally with the sweet sauce (tim cheong), sprinkled with lots of sesame seeds and fried shallots, I had the rolls of steamed rice noodles with chunks of yam cake (wu tau kou) for some interesting clash of texture and flavours.
The fried mee was decent too, but if you only have space for one dish here at Yut Sun, make it the Hainanese chicken chop.
There are several Hainanese specialties on the menu, but the whole fam opted for the signature Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM10), which featured a whole battered chicken fillet, drenched in an onion/pea/mixed vegetable sauce and a side of potato wedges. Everything was excellent, from the flavours which melded together beautifully, to the perfectly cooked, tender chicken fillet with its savoury crust that was almost like a second skin.
One can choose the dish with either chicken or duck eggs. I went for the duck eggs as they have a stronger unique smell and taste. Ah Soon's famous fireworks char koay teow is a favourite among locals, so do be prepared for a wait of up to half an hour during peak hours.
The stall opens daily (except Sunday), 7pm - 11pm/12am. Queue is always long. My record of waiting was 1 hour! The uncle don't cook his CKT in big batches which explains the long wait. Through my observation, he cooks maximum 2 plates at one go. The best time to go to wait for a shorter time is either when the stall just open or after 10.30pm. Forget about going there for dinner, 8pm or so. Or if you must, make sure you bring a companion, a book or whatever gadgets you have to keep you occupied or else, you will go bananas waiting!
