Snack in Petaling Street
Hon’s Malaysian Pancake stall Apam Balik Restaurant
My favourite Malaysian street food in Malaysia was a local favourite dessert, Apam Balik. A traditional Malaysian peanut pancake or Malaysian peanut turnover.
Madam Tang Mua Chi Stall 麻芝皇后陳玉環 Restaurant
Jalan Petaling, 50000 KL
Frankly speaking, I have had many better muah chee at pasar malam. But ultimately, it’s more about more about supporting Madam Tang, who, in spite of her age, is still trying to make an honest living at the corner of a busy market.
Covered with a heavy layer of finely grated peanuts, the muah chee were chewy yet not sticky and the distinctive flavourings were actually pretty fragrant without appearing to be overly artificial.
Sweet Potato Balls Petaling Street 茨厂街番薯蛋 Restaurant
Open Hour8am - 3pm
Jalan Hang Lekir, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The potato balls are crunchy outside and mushy inside. The sweet potato balls are made and fried on the spot to keep it fresh.
Swiss Roll 蛋糕卷 Restaurant
Open Hour8am - 3pm Closed on Sunday and Public Holiday
Jalan Yap Ah Loy, 50050, Kuala Lumpur
If you happen to pass by Lorong Yap Ah Loy, you will see an elderly lady with a simple pushcart stall set up at the corner. She sells one of the most delicious kaya swiss roll in town. In KL town, there are lots of good food to be found at every nook and cranny if you know your way around. Apart from her famous kaya swiss roll, she is also selling egg tarts, kaya puff and individually packed kaya in a container.
The Swiss roll was fine in texture and justly soft – each bite was dense, yet fluffy with a good amount of aromatic kaya (coconut jam) which the auntie made herself. You can also buy the kaya (RM3 per small tub) from her. I liked how the roll had an eggy and caramelised flavour from the hours of cooking. Slightly pricier compared to Yut Kee, but this tastier and made with a lot of care.
