Under the tree, Jalan King

Just got back from lunch with the family. We went to Jalan King, Pasir Pinji, where there is a collection of hawker stalls. The place has seen some improvement as there is now a zinc roof for more cover.

We ate at the fried and wet yong tau foo (char liu and sap liu) stall. It is always busy and the sign says it is open from about 9am to 5pm. There is a big selection of fish paste stuffed into different kinds of vegetables like lady's fingers, brinjal, bitter gourd, even into yau-char-kwai, and then fried. The stuffed yau-char-kwai was quite different, and very cripsy! An interesting fried vegetable done here is the "sa kot" or "sengkuang" or "yam bean". The pricing is very reasonable - 50 sen a piece.

The fried veges are accompanied by noodles from the same stall. You can either have it dry and mixed with black sauce, or with soup, or in asam laksa broth. Yum! The asam laksa is sour and tangy. The meal came to about RM18 for our family of 6. A caveat though - no air cond, not too tidy, old tables and chairs. If you're ok with that, go for it.
