Like it this way…

In yesterday’s post, I featured my own way of eating kompia – with SPAM, cheese and tomato.

Some people, however, prefer to eat kompia just like that to enjoy its unique fragrance and taste. Others prefer it stuffed with meat and toasted…

Toasted kompia

…like these that are sold at 70sen each at a coffee shop at the old closed-down cinema complex at Rejang Park. If I can recall correctly, the name is Leong Leong or something like that. They also sell them stuffed with meat and dipped in soy sauce and 5-spice powder gravy like they do at this very popular place along Tiong Hua Road here…

Somehow it does not tickle my fancy this way as I do not quite like my kompia soft and soggy.

These are sold at a coffee shop in the vicinity of Ling Kai Cheng Road here…

First, they deep-fry the kompia and then they stuff it with meat. I stopped by the other day at around 2.00 p.m. to buy a few and there were a number of people there as well waiting for their orders. It certainly seemed very popular…even at 80 sen a piece.

All in all, my favourite would be these that are sold at 3 for RM3.90 at this place

No doubt they’re more expensive but personally, I think they are way ahead of the rest as far as the taste is concerned.

Of course, there are all the other ways of eating kompia at this place…or with curry gravy here and the bottom line is whether you like it this way or that, it’s all up to the individual and his or her own preference – as I always say, one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
