Pasembur all the way!!!

I visit Batu Lanchang Market Food Court solely for the chinese stall pasembur. I have tried other places but they are no match to the one served here. Waiting period to eat-in or take-away can be quite a while during peak hours but otherwise, it's worth the wait.

Many nice & cheap hawker food could be found here, but the one I would recommend is the popiah & "Mou Dak Deng" char koay teow. Both are the hot seller among others. Besides, the other local favorites are pasembur & nyonya kuihs. For those who like to go for all these, please be early to avoid crowd, especially during... More

Whip me with a wet noodle, if you must. I suppose I deserve some kind of penance for the following confessions: It looks OK, and tastes OK, but it’s shadow char kway teow. It really isn’t the same char kway teow from Lorong Selamat or MacAlister Roundabout. It’s a shadow of that char kway teow. In a word, it was... More

I am purely focusing on the ice-kacang and cendul by Tony. He stall is located in the mid section of the food court. What sets his ice-kacang apart from the others is the flavouring and the use of other ingredients. Ice-kacang is a sweet dessert comprising shaved ice, red bean, grass jelly, sweet corn, palm seed and peanuts. Topped by... More

Wide variety of Penang hawker food under one roof, with ample parking space. At night when the stalls close, there is a Chinese chu char, food is good & affordable price.

Good variety and taste. Wouldn't call the chicken rice best in anywhere but it's ok. Pasembur is good. The fried noodles are good as well. Always a fan of the fresh sugar cane. simple, cheep and cheerful. Not for family with infants though.
