Last Friday, I was checking out the stalls that mushroomed along Jalan Tengah (the road in between Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Raja Chulan (behind MAS Building/Aetna/Weld). It's very carnival like... errr not sure what they call these since they are opened only during lunch hour. It's something like pasar malam with stalls selling clothes, cloth, toys, plants, fruits, and of course food.
I walked up and down the road looking for the chee cheung fun man but alas he wasn't there, but smelt something terrible nice... my colleague pointed me to the direction of a tent in front of Aetna, it gotta be Aetna since I only saw the bright orange wall behind this stall hahahaha... She told me another colleague bought that before and commented it was nice. I took a look at the banner... it says "Nasi Ayam Goreng Berempah" and they were frying the chicken on the spot!!! No wonder it smelt sooo nice...
I asked for a packet of half rice and topped up with cucumber slices, some chilli sauce and a pack of curry but I need to wait for the chicken!!!! All the chicken were snapped up earlier and they just started a new batch. I stood under the hot sun for 20 minutes before I snagged a piece of chicken off the wok!!! So it better be good, hrrrmmmmppphhh...
Oppsie excuse me for pointing the bishop nose at your face kekeke, not my choice since I just grabbed whatever they put in the basket quickly. This fried chicken is basically deep fried chicken marinaded in spices. The chicken is very fragrant but the skin is not as crispy. Most prolly they were rushing to dish them out as the queue had gotten pretty long. It's pretty good with the tangy chilli sauce. Luckily it is worth my 20 minutes wait under the hot sun and it costed RM4.00.
Next time, I'm gonna go there extra early to beat the crowd or maybe I should call ahead hehe! Darn, I need to stop eating all these heaty stuff with the current hot weather but they're soooo tempting, sighhhhh...
Whilst I was there waiting for my colleague to buy kuih, I saw many people crowding around the cendol and rojak truck. Since it was so hot, I got tempted into asking for a cup of cendol (RM2.00)... business was very brisk until we have to place the cendol into the plastic bag ourselves. Bad move as the plastic cup is very soft, the coconut milk flowed outta cover and it's very messy. Luckily my colleague came in time to help me out.
By the time I have a sip, the shaved ice had already melted and its no longer cold, checked the fridge in the pantry... no ice either *sobs* have to drink warm cendol. It's quite nice actually and the coconut milk is pretty thick, in fact a little too thick. Very jelak especially when it's not cold. I can't finish it since it's so rich. Could have been better if more shaved ice is added to it. No pic cos it's extremely messy.
If you are going to check out this place, remember to watch out for on coming traffic as the road is not closed whilst trading is going on. I'm not even sure if the hawkers are trading there legally in the first place. So just be careful yah.
