Mambo No. 5…

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Mango Number 5…

Mango No. 5 1

One, two, three, four, five…well, many not so many times, but three, at least – three times when my friend went to this hawker centre near my house and had this and shared the photographs on Facebook.

Since then, I had been wanting to go over and give it a try but I never got down to it. For one thing, this place is always very crowded and one may have to park one’s car far far away and walk all the way there. Walk? Now that’s one word that does not exist in my vocabulary! Hehehehehehe!!!

Well, after dinner the other night, my girl said that she would like to go to the mall at the other side of this commercial area of shops and I decided to walk to my bank right beside this place…and I made my mind there and then to grab the opportunity and go over and have that mango delight for dessert.

I could have gone to No. 2 – it also had this same thing, the one with the name like one of Jesus Christ’s Twelve Apostles, Simon Peter…

…but my friend said Stall No. 5…

Stall No. 5

…so I went to that one. After all, if I had gone to the former, it would not be Mango No. 5, not anything like the name of the hit song. LOL!!! It was a good thing I did what I did because when I shared the photograph of it on Facebook, another friend, obviously more familiar with this place, commented that No. 5’s was the best.

Indeed, it was very very nice, a whole lot of mango, half a fruit at least, very fresh and sweet, with shaved ice drowned in lots of evaporated milk underneath…

…that blended nicely with the fruit and it was only RM10.00!  I had the mango bingsu here that was almost double the price and it did not get us all that excited, not at all…especially at that price! This one wins hands down, that’s for sure.

I sure enjoyed that and should I be around those parts in the evening again, you can bet I’ll stop by for more of this…Mango No. 5!

  1. Oh, ice and mango! my favourite! Just not sure whether the condensed milk will affect or clash with the taste of the mango or not.

    It’s evaporated milk, very light taste – no syrup so not sweet. Actually it’s the mango that makes the ice and milk taste great. Everything goes very well together.

  2. That is a whole lot of mango. Worth the price. You make me craving for mango.

    Indeed. The fruit is so expensive and often rotting away inside.

  3. Wowsers! That sure is a striking dessert. Walk… I love to walk – burn the calories before I eat them. 😉

    LOL!!! I’m old…but some will tell me, all the more reason to walk a lot more!

  4. So much mango. Yummy dessert. Glad you try it out.

    Been there before? Make sure you check it out the next time you’re passing by this way. Opens only at night, very popular…always lots of people.
