A different corner (3)…

In this post a couple of days ago, I mentioned the RM2.50 Sarawak laksa and the RM1.00 nasi lemak that is available from this place at Bandong…

Bandong II 1

It’s at the shops in the area which used to be so very popular years ago that the place would be packed mainly with teenagers and the roads jammed with their cars. I don’t know if it still is or not as I haven’t been there at night for a long, long time. I seldom go out at night, you see…but I do go in the daytime. This stall is located at one corner – the last shop on the right of the block, the back portion of which is facing the main road. The surau is at the other end to the left.

Here, you can see the Sarawak laksa, all ready packed – the gravy in one bag and the mihun plus shredded chicken and egg as well as the lime and sambal belacan (separately in a smaller bag) in another bag…

…and these are the roti canai

Banding II 3

I think I mentioned before that they sell halal kampua noodles at RM1.50 without meat. I’ve tried it before and I would say that it was very nice…

Bandong II 4

…unlike the so-called kampua at the Malay coffee shops in town that I had been to. All this while, theirs had been a total disappointment. However, I would not say that it is cheap though as you can get kampua at any Chinese kampua stall without meat and it also costs RM1.50. Just imagine…we actually have to pay 70 sen for those few miserable paper-thin slices of meat!

I noticed that they also have lemang

Bandong II 5

In fact, you can get all kinds of Malay kuihs and delicacies at this stall.It is virtually impossible to list all of them here. You will just have to go there yourself to see and choose what you like. I love their bingka labu (pumpkin) – very lemak and very nice and only RM1.00 for 4!

Bandong II 6

…and yesterday morning, I managed to buy their putu mayam

Bandong II 7

All this while, I had not been lucky and each time I went, it was all sold out. They’re big – the same size as those that I had when I was a boy but unfortunately, they’re somewhat thin, so I had to put two pieces together, add a generous topping of grated coconut and sugar, roll and eat at one go. They’re selling those at RM2.00 a packet for 10 pieces.

I’ve been told that at night, they sell ayam penyet Bandung (as in Indonesia, not this Bandong)

Bandong II 8

I’ve never heard of such a dish before…but the other day, I saw it in a post on sixthseal.com. Gee! It seems that they even have an ayam penyet franchise in KL! (Umm…no, eiling! I don’t want you to give me a treat there when I go to KL! Must go to some place more expensive! Wink! Wink! LOL!!!)

I heard that the one here is very nice but unfortunately, they only sell it at night starting at around 7.00 p.m. and like I said earlier, I seldom go out at night. Anybody dropping by there by any chance? Do tapao some for me, can or not? LOL!!!

I’ll be flying off to Kuching later this morning to attend a farewell dinner for Cooking4STP who will be moving to Perth very soon in search of greener pastures. Thus, I don’t reckon there’ll be a post tomorrow as I will only be home by evening. (Somehow this brings to mind Yan‘s newspaper on a public holiday! LOL!) Do make sure that you’re back here on Monday, ok? …..Ta ta!!!
