Tea time snacks @ SS5

white truck stallkuihs & nasi lemak28 October 2011

I just remembered in college days, there is this Malay family who parks a white truck under some shady trees between Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Kelana Jaya and the T-Junction of Jalan Majlis, which leads to the former roundabout, now traffic lights. I believe besides passers-by along Jalan SS5/2 which is not really busy, it should cater quite often to the school kids.

Thus, on this fateful day, I decided to drop-by this place for some food since I was not really hungry for a full lunch. Most of the kuih is 50 sen each while I also tried the nasi lemak which the rice was just nicely flavoured with coconut & its nice texture, not too mushy or too grainy at RM 1.20. The relatively bright coloured sambal was tasty too & not too spicy with a wee bit of ikan bilis or anchovies, ground nuts & egg.

Other kuih’s I tried were:

  • kuih ketayap - I particularly liked the thick pancake-like wrapping as it was very flavourful, abit similar to roti jala. On the inner part, there was generous sweet brown santan or coconut filling too making both of it blend in harmony.
  • curry puff - nice tasty thin crusted & seemed to use quite lot of curry powder with the potatoes but still tastes good.
  • kuih kodok - I am not sure if it is really kuih kodok but this version on a stick has a dark crispy outter layer with soft, cake like texture on the inside.

I saw there were other types of kuih which I would like to try in future too like:

  • kuih keria or kuih gelang which is sweet potatoe doughnuts
  • Onde-Onde - green balls with coconut flakes & brown sugar or gula melaka inside
  • kuih koci - glutinuous rice floor filled filled with peanut paste
  • pulut sambal - glutinuous rice with sambal mixed with dried prawns in the middle.
  • kuih bakar or kuih kemboja which is a flower shaped kuih with brown crust and some sesame seeds outside with a chewy green pandan texture inside.
