When we arrived at the place, almost half of the tables were occupied and we managed to get a big table near the entrance with a huge fan (it's a hot day). Thankful for that. This place is famous for its prawns. The price is also pretty reasonable.
I won't say that this is the place that is mostly visited by the locals to get their Siew Pow fix. In fact, there are many small bakeries in Seremban that is famous for this. However, these are the guys that have put Seremban on the national food map in the early 1990's and I thought that due respect had to be given to these guys. Today, this is more of a tourist stop but still, their Siew Pow's are pretty good. Not to say the best in Seremban as I had previously mentioned, nevertheless still good and value for money. Worth a stop if you have never taste Seremban Siew Pow's before.
Anyway, bought Chicken Siew Bao and Pork Siew Bao from there and ate it on the spot since it’s still freshly baked and hot. They both tasted very yummy. It’s not so awesome when it’s cold so I recommend that if you can, eat it right away, either way, heat it when you got back home.
Our favourite here has to be the Red Bean Ham Chim Peng (RM1.60) due to the generous filling of red bean paste (good texture, not cloyingly sweet) and puffed pastry.
This shop sells Crispy Cakoi and many other traditional fried snacks and desserts all day! Its a local favorites store! Their Tau Fu Fa’s brown sugar has a l...
They sell tofufa (soybean curd), hong tao sui (red bean sweet soup), and many other types of tong sui; deep fried snacks such as yao char kwai (chinese cruellers), sweet "Ham Chim Peng" with red bean fillings, "Kap Choong" (the one with glutinous rice in the middle), "Ma Keok" (literally means Horse Hoof - the one with the sesame seeds on it), savoury "Ham Chim Peng" (flavoured with 5 spices); chee cheong fun, mee hoon and other light food.
Along with a nice cosy ambiance to go with it. If you have not tried their desserts before, you should :)
Creamy tong-sui is showcased in the bubur cha cha, green bean sago, and the black glutinous rice, with the former cooked in coconut milk and the latter complemented by a topping of thick coconut milk.
Here's the location.
The most famous foods in this shop is the 3 in 1 fried glutinous rice cake. 3 in 1 fried glutinous cake means there is a layer of sweet potato, glutinous rice cake, taro and a thin layer of frying batter.
If you have ever went to Malaysia Boleh, they do have similar stall with the same signboard selling fried durian too. It will be the best alternative if you do not have time to travel down into Johor.
DA LANG! Each slim slice of yellow sweet potato and yam hamburgering MELTING chinese cake! ♥♥
Many said is nicer than Seremban Siew Pau.
We initially ordered one poh piah (RM3) - after tasting the first one, we immediately placed an order for another one as it was so GOOD! The popiahs here are made fresh to order.
Poh Piah! An all-time favourite snack food. My parents love this so much that it’s really tough to find a good poh piah in town. Th...
我很少吃薄饼, 这次和朋友去马六甲时去了这家香薄饼食家 这可不是普通的popiah 哦, 因为里面包了一种很重要的材料 -猪油渣
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.....
The fresh bananas are peeled battered on the spot, and fried at the roadside stall. We didn’t get to try the curry puff, but all fritters were great, with pisang goreng being the best of course. What makes the goreng pisang here stand out from the rest is the use of pisang raja which are firm, soft and incredibly sweet.
While I wouldn’t say these fried fritters were out of this world, they were still delicious and definitely better than those I had eaten previously. This is so far my champion of pisang goreng! 🙂
And depending on luck, it can get crowded at times. And the queues can be long. So much so that you have to wait for 20-30 minutes for a fresh batch to be cooked.
How Yau Char Kwai is made.This is also known as Youtiao or Cakoi
Love the texture of yau char guai and usually I would pair it over Kopi O kau during my tea time. Love the taste of their glutinous rice where it is not to sticky, sweet where it is just perfect with mild fagrant oil taste and the crisp at the edges.
Well worth the wait, each piece is crunchy on the outside, soft inside and light. I can imagine this will be great with a bowl of piping hot soy bean milk or plain porridge. If you're a crispy dough addict, head over here as this may just be the best ones in the town.
Nasi Lemak Curry Puff I could not detect any taste of coconut milk nor pandan. The main taste of the fillings is sambal. There are whole peanuts, pieces of anchovies, a small piece of hard boiled egg and small pieces of proper chicken meat (not reconstituted ones). It is only slightly spicy. Compared to other curry puffs, this nasi lemak curry puff has a lot more ingredients in it. Having tried it, I don't think I will buy it at the normal price though I may buy it if there is a discount because it tastes fine for a curry puff.
Must Try! 2 for MYR 7.60 and 1 for MYR 4.10 - New Curry Puffs that contain Egg, Chicken, Peanuts, Anchovies and Sambal Chili. Will you buy one or two to try?
At about MYR 3.30 per piece, the fillings are less now due to its flat shape although the piece of hard boiled egg is still there for the chicken potatoes curry puffs. Now they have added more choices such as satay chicken puffs and chicken rendang puffs among others.
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.
Back to basic, where this was a random hunt that I brought my ex colleague back to a place that I constantly used to crave for my fried fritters or this famous Goreng Pisang. This little food truck that sits right infront of Pelita SS2, is one one of a stall that you would love to hunt for simple snacks. Being around for quite a while and now her son is assisting in continuing the business.
Of course, the main star that keeps us coming back for more are the Banana Fritters (炸香蕉). The batter on the outside has always been crunchy yet thin and the banana on the inside was sweet without a texture that is too soft. These are probably our favourite banana fritters in the Klang Valley to date!
The food price range from RM0.50 to RM 1.50
Iced red bean (RM3.50)…with a special request for extra gula Melaka and it sure was very good.
My missus had their kampua mee (RM3.20)…which, of course, is more expensive than most around town and at best, I would say theirs is pretty all right – good enough if you do not have a lot of time in town and would like to get to eat as many of the local delights as possible.
No, I did not feel like having laksa that day and I ordered their Pattaya chicken rice (RM6.20) which is one of the items on their menu that I rather enjoy. In fact, before I retired and was teaching in the school across the road, I used to hop over to have this time and time again but I am quite sure that they would give a lot more chicken…at the time.
Another new item is "紫薯麻糬鸡蛋仔 Purple Potato Mochi", both are best consumed when fresh steaming hot. Not bad!
I passed by Eggette Lab many times and saw long queues. A Hong Kong Snack also known as the famous Hong Kong style Egg Waffle. "Is it nice meh?" I thought to myself. "Maybe it is just like our local bahulu kuih made from eggs and flour". But I couldn't resist it last night at Sunway Pyramid when the sweet aroma of eggs was so strong when I walk pass by this Eggette Lab.
Verdict: 1. Yummy and filling snack but it can be quite sweet after finishing 70% of it. 2. The only downside is, the long queue can make you wait for 20-30 minutes. 3. Recommended: Charcoal Cheese, Green Tea
Taiyaki is a popular Japanese dessert where a fish-shaped "eggette" sort of pancake is filled with matcha paste. The recent craze revolving Taiyaki has been taiyaki filled with ice cream. But! The opening of Croissant Taiyaki was sure to top all the other taiyaki in the market, well, at least for me.
Of course need to try one of their classic which is Azuki Red Bean @ RM 7.50. Paste is just nice yet not too sweet. Besides that, I went another round to try out their hybrid filling which is Red Bean & Matcha Ice Cream @ RM 8.50. Turns out to be quite interesting. Feels like eating Ice Cream Roti.
Karipap dalam tray tu semua panas2, baru angkat dari kuali. Jadi nak gigit pun kena hati2, kang melecur lidah. Isi karipap tu padat dengan inti ketul2 kentang dan isi ayam yang dicarik-carik. Rasa rempah kat inti tu agak kuat tapi sedap. Pedas sikit smpai berair idung aku masa makan. Kulit luar nyer plak perfek, tak tebal sangat, tak nipis sangat, rangup secukupnya.
Harga sebiji samada karipap atau cucur udang atau popiah adalah RM1 satu. Harganya agak mahal tapi amat berbaloi dengan keenakannya. Selain pada itu, layanan yang di beri juga memuaskan. Tuan punya kedai bernama Pak Ngah, sungguh mesra bersesuaian dengan bidang yang di ceburi.
When you are passing by Ayer Hitam, swing over to Putu Bambu Juriah and get a few packs to eat in the car, on the go.

A pack of long fries at MYR 9.50 nett. Long fries are basically thin and long sticks made from the same batter as churros. I chose nacho cheese sauce instead of cheddar cheese or spicy sauce because I did not want a spicy sauce and when I asked the cashier on the difference between nacho cheese and cheddar cheese, she said that nacho cheese sauce is salty whereas cheddar cheese sauce is creamier and on the sweet side and I prefer salty. The long fries taste similar to yao zhar kwai (chinese cruellers) but is crispier. I did not count how many sticks there are in the pack but I think there are about 10 sticks.
Original Churros RM5.90 Flavour : Cinnamon / Chocolate / Cheese Dipping Sauce (+RM1.90): Chocolate / Cream Cheese / Butterscotch / Blueberry Cinnamon churros is the bestseller of Street Churros, it is my favourite too! Every churro is dusted nicely with flavour powder.
I personally feel that the Filling Churro is more enjoyable as the creamy filling melts in the mouth as we bite through the crisp piping hot churro. Again, my favourite is the lightly Cream Cheese filled churro, which is slightly more savoury but not overpowering. Good to try even if you may not be a fan of cheese.
Gindaco Takoyaki @ SkyAvenue Genting Highlands Malaysia
The Original is Gindaco’s flagship, and it is drizzled with Gindaco’s signature sauce and topped with dried seaweed and dancing bonito flakes.
We ordered the Ebi Mayo Takoyaki (6 pieces @ RM17.90 / 8 pieces @ RM20.90) which was topped with shrimp and mayonnaise. Despite the higher price, not to mention every thing are slightly pricier in SkyAvenue Genting, we are not denying with the fact that the takoyaki was delicious. The unassuming looking takoyaki was firm but soft to bite, and it melted it your mouth. There were big chunks of octopus inside each takoyaki. The snack was actually quite filling and we shared one order amongst two people.
