Ask for duck egg to get the extra "om".Along the same row, afew stalls away u can get "chendol" as good as the one... More

A place for locals to eat local food at local prices. The quality is good and the variety will cover most all the hawker food varieties.

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
