FOODIE HAVEN IN MENGLEMBU.

An ex-colleague first introduced me to the Menglembu's morning wet market where we can find almost anything we wished to buy and the prices reasonable. Recently, another ex-colleague who is also my foodie friend introduced me to this mobile food haven at the same location.

I was told that by around 1.00 pm, the mobile food stalls will begin to take over the market square. The first time my foodie friend brought me here was about 4.30 pm and some hot selling items were sold out!
We both ordered Ice Kacang and were seated at a long table.
A friendly auntie started a conversation with us.
Deep Fried goodies - 2 pieces of yam (taro) and 1 piece of nien ko, both are my favourites.
This messy looking but very tasty thing was the savoury glutinous rice served with curried sardine and spicy cockles. A very filling item!
My foodie friend and I enjoying our snacks and dessert.
After eating these, no dinner for me that evening! 
Iced cold, chilling desserts from this van! 
 Hot and crispy deep fried goodies stall.
The glutinous rice was from one of these stalls.
Few days later, we had visitors.
So hubby and I came here to pack some snacks at about 2.30 pm.
I was told the Roasted Pork here is hot selling.
Customers were queuing up when we arrived.
I too joined in the queue. While waiting, I got busy taking snapshots.
Snapped this while waiting for my turn. These are not all. Saw more roasted pigs at the back of the small lorry.
I noticed he continued chopping when he looked up to talk to his customers.
RM25.00 worth of roasted pork.
RM5.00 worth of kum chin yoke (skewered BBQ layered meat, fat and liver).

BBQ pig's tongue - RM2.00 (hubby wanted to try this).
Deep fried yam (taro) and nien koh (sticky glutinous rice).
The deep fried yam will taste better with a sprinkling of fine salt.
The glutinous rice cake slice is sandwiched between a slice of sweet potato and yam (taro).
Special request by our visitors!
Best taken with piping hot Chinese tea or black coffee!

Dear brothers, you are only visitors here.

Since your real home is in heaven,

I beg you to keep away from the evil pleasures of this world;

they are not for you, for they fight against your very souls.

(1 Peter 2:11, TLB)

  9. The abc ais kacang looks so special with the purple jelly and such a big portion too. I love to eat the fried nien gao with taro and sweet potatoes - how much is one piece? I have never seen savoury glutinous rice served with curried sardine and spicy cockles before. Does it taste like lo mai fan? I could not find the liver in the kum chin yoke plate - nothing looks like liver in there. All in all, I would like to visit these mobile stalls just to eat the abc, glutinous rice and nien gao.

    1. Mun, it is lo mai fan but served with curried sardine and spicy cockles. The liver pieces are there, its because they looked like bbq meat. We will be returning for more.

  13. I live in the Southern part of the U.S. and fried food is a very big part of our local fairs and festivals...fried Twinkies, fried candy bars, fried pizza...you name it! It's good to see fried foods are a part of events in other parts of the world!

    1. Hi Stephanie, fried food is also a big part of our local fair and festivals. It is definitely very difficult for us to avoid fried food!

  14. That pork reminds me so much of what we called letchong kawali here in the philippines, that's actually my dinner for tom. Also, those ice deserts, we also have that like here, we call it halo-halo.

    Now ive noticed that asian countries are very much alike. :)

  21. The fried nien koh kuih is one of my favourites, Nancy! But I haven't had it in awhile because the old lady I used to buy it from has closed her stall. I'm also salivating over all the pork dishes. ^.^

  22. Nancy, I would gladly skip lunch and eat at the mobile stalls as I see that they have my favourite nian koh and lots of roasted pork! That glutinous rice dish with curried sardines and cockles is something new to me.
