Give me some more…

This is the Malay kueh (cake) stall here

Bandong shop/stall

…that I frequent quite a lot including during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. I got there very early that morning so the crowd had not started coming yet. Business sure seemed rather brisk at that time of day on those previous occasions that I was there, mainly parents buying something for their kids to bring to school, so much so that one would have to queue up at the cashier’s counter to pay for one’s purchases.

My girl’s favourite, their cucur (fried fritters) are a best seller, 3 for RM1.00…

Cucur

…and will be sold out in no time at all. I guess the guy will fry some more if there is any more batter and if the time is right like how he would replenish the fried noodles (RM2.00 a cup)…

Fried mee

…when he sees that it is running out. I did buy the noodles once and though it was very good, it was the fried kway teow (RM2.00 a cup)…

Fried kway teow

…that got me coming back to buy some more. Yes, I thought it was very nice and I really enjoyed it.

Since I was there already that morning, I thought I would just buy something for tea that afternoon or on the subsequent days. I grabbed a packet of this what-we-called-Kate panggang (RM5.50 for a pack of 5)…

Panggang

…which I feel is no longer what it used to be, not so lemak (rich in santan/coconut milk) anymore but it still has a slight edge over the other good ones.

The pumpkin cake or bingka labu (4 for RM1.00)…

Bingka labu

…that I also bought that day was really good, lemak enough and not too sweet plus the texture was just perfect – not too soft and mushy and not chewy or rubbery either.

I was quite sure this is not called nasi manis (4 for RM1.00)…

Wajik

…as stated on the sign/label. I remember it being called wajik and when I googled that, I found that the full name is kuih wajik pulut manis and yes, it is made of pulut (glutinous rice) and not ordinary nasi (rice) with gula apong (nipah palm sugar). This is one of the Malay kuehs that I enjoyed a lot when I was young and I still do enjoy it to this day.

This stall/shop that used to be called MAK MET’s BREAKFAST STATION is located at the shops along Bandong Walk (2.313869, 111.825808) where PENYET BANDONG is in the evening.
