Went to dinner with ALGJ and LGFL. Managed to drag MSF out as well since our destination was nearby to her office. Parking was easy as I was able to spot 2 empty spaces just outside the food court.

I’ve always thought the nicer ABC stall was the one at the corner, but MSF told me that the usual nice one that she usually has was from the stall where I used to have my cendol previously. It was pretty nice, especially the brown sugar’s taste. Though I wished it was less sweet but there is rarely any ABC that is less sweeter than this. The shaved iced was very fine, which melts evenly in the mouth and it wouldn’t lacerate the tongue as well.

I didn’t particularly liked the fried tofu but it wasn’t bad either. The outer layer was very crispy and the content didn’t spill as well. Taste wise was nothing to shout about. On the other hand, cuttlefish with water spinach was pretty amazing. The similar type of food that I have everywhere else has runny sauce, but this one, the sauce was thick and there were generous amount of peanut powder. The spinach didn’t watered down the sauce either. I guess it was properly dried after being poached. Worth coming back for as I don’t find anything similar to this anywhere else.

Despite how nice ALGJ said the mee jawa was, I was glad I didn’t order this the previous time I was here. Not that it sucked, but it wasn’t nice either. There were plenty of bean sprouts, almost as much as the noodle. The gravy was nothing awesome, though the crispy crackers were something to crave for.

Had a very late lunch today because I was waiting for AC’s call. When he finally calls, it was almost 3pm. Anyway, went to meet him up and have lunch nearby the place. He recommended stuff from the morning market, which apparently most of the stalls were closed. Of course they were, it’s already half way through noon. So we ended up in Medan Selera instead.

Cendol was nice. Aside from it being served on a cup, there were nothing much to complain about. Though I was hoping gula melaka was being used but the brown sugar used wasn’t all bad. The red beans has the roasted fragrance to it. Though it’s a bit too sweet, only a bit. Much much more better than road side’s Indian’s cendol. I’d come back here for a quick fix of cendol whenever I feel like it.

Fruits rojak was acceptable. At least it was better than Jalan Ipoh YTF’s rojak. There were plenty of water spinach in it. The only complain I had was, instead of giving large pieces of crackers, it was served in shattered pieces of crackers, which doesn’t have much tasting to it.

Popia was quite nice, though it lacked the taste of red sweet sauce. It was moist and juicy, with the same crackers used in rojak found in it. Despite it was soft, the fillings don’t fall apart as I pick it up with my chopsticks. I guess the auntie who made this has years of experience in making good popia. I’ve got nothing much to talk about on the fried tofu though. Probably not overly sweetened by the sweet sauce in it, like most fried tofu do.

After having so many sweet stuff, cendol, rojak, popia and the filling in fried tofu were sweet too. I was stuck with either ordering a mee jawa or chicken rice. Mee jawa was more suitable for my strict diet because of the lacked of meat, but I ended up with chicken rice anyway because I wouldn’t want another sweet food.
