Strange that I never wrote about KTZ (kei tuck sek in Cantonese or also known as Fruitti Stall) all these while as I've been visiting here since errmmm I can't even remember, perhaps since their opening :p
Their first branch in Kepong Baru remained my favourite even though they have air-cond locations. Somehow nothing beats the fume and dust from the main road and the heat under the zinc roof to enjoy snacks and desserts here heh! Another plus point is the snack counter where all their available snacks are on display and all you need to do is point at what you want. The snacks will be fried and presented to you later on. This really beat reading off the menu! Visual treats can be rather devasting to the waistlines hehe... a lot of times we tend to eat with our eyes :p We used to come here for breakfast but nowadays they open late in the afternoon and closes late. A stone throw from here is where One Noodle located.
This visit we did not order any deep fried snacks since it was quite late. Just needed a bite since we did not have dinner. We just have a plate of chee cheung fun (rice noodle rolls) and steamed radish cake. I loved the chee cheung fun with button mushroom slices in between top with morsels of sesame seeds here. They're slippery smooth and sauces are served on the side separately on sauce plates.
Radish cake is rather plain but there are large chunks of radish in there with hints of dried shrimps. This cake is served as the same sauces as chee cheung fun. The chilli sauce goes rather well here.
Each time I'm here, I will have a bowl of Peanut Soup - without fail! Their consistency and quality seems to have maintained over the years. I liked the fragrant and creamy part without feeling too jelak (stuffed). Their tong shui (sweet soup) here are not sickly sweet, just nice for my tastebud. I remember there was once Capt'n Hook and I ermm when we were younger... we just ordered bowls after bowls of tong shui and in the end, I had 3 bowls stacked up on my side and he had 4 in one sitting!
The other hard to resist item is their Mango Lo... if they're doing it right, there will be a layer of mango puree with sago pearls at bottom followed by very fine shaved ice. Another layer of mango puree with sago pearls then top with a mound of shaved ice. Large chunk of sweet Philippines mango cubes are arranged around the bowl followed by a generous topping of mango puree and sago pearls. If you do not have this many layers when you scoop in, do ask them why hehe... They do have other fruit flavours like kiwi, strawberry, honeydew, red bean etc but I find the mango the best.
Can't find the receipt but if you squint hard, you might be able to see the prices here (click the pic to enlarge).
I'm ending this post with this photo... what do you think the staff are doing there???
