: : Pasar Kampung, Tabuan Laru : :
Had lunch again at Pasar Kampung, Tabuan Laru, with the usual gang. Have told RC about this ‘fair’ and beautiful hands. Ha!
Managed to take a shot of the nasi lemak that RC wallop a few days ago. SU was kind enough to let me take a snapshot before tucking in. From Chinese stall using halal chicken. I’ll leave it to the Muslim’s to decide whether it’s properly halal. Am not sure about it.
Hong Kong Mee
This was a towering dish! At least 5 cm high! Definitely a generous topping for RM3 (US$0.78), much more than at Thompson Corner. Probably due to the fact that the lunch crowd are mostly people who are labourers with tremendous appetite. BJ’s favourite dish : think this is the 2nd one in two days! From non-halal store : he uses pork so be forewarned.
Fried Kway Teow with Taugeh
My love affair with Fried Kway Teow cooked with Taugeh (bean sprouts). SU’s one yesterday was just too tasty for me to resist. So, am ordering it today. I think it’s just a family tradition to love fried kway teow. There’s something about the noodles that just makes it, oh, so irresistible. From the same stall that cooked the towering Hong Kong Mee.
Ang Tau Peng
Oppps! I actually forgot to add this in when I posted the Lunch Menu. Ang Tau Peng (Iced Red Bean) is one of the many varieties of ais kacang (iced beans) drink available. Another type is ais jaguang (iced corn drink). There are actually a lot of different ingredients one can try like the fluorescent green jelly (looks like worms), red sago (very tiny itsy bitsy jelly-type…err… round things), fruits, cincau (black sweetened jelly. can actually find them in powdered form nowadays). Compulsory ingredients are the brown sugar, evaporated milk or coconut milk and grenaldine syrup for the pink colour.
Here’s a close-up of the red beans found in the drink. Ais kacang is a favourite during hot weather. Surprisingly, in West Malaysia, the ais kacang drinks aren’t as colourful as the ones found in Sarawak. Don’t know the reasoning why. Anyway, I like a bit of colour. When it’s really brown, doesn’t look so attractive to eat. Haven’t seen a blue coloured ais kacang yet. :p
