Chee Cheong Fun and Ice Kacang @ Petaling Street

Since there is a serious lack of real food in my last post, I thought I will add a bonus post on what I ate when I did my Petaling Street walkabout.



One of my family's favourites, this chee cheong fun brings back memories as my parents used to pack this back for my Sunday breakfast. They used to do their weekly fish shopping in the Madras Lane wet market as it had the freshest fish. I love the simple sauce and the smooth texture of the chee cheong fun here. You can enjoy it by sitting at the stall or at tables right behind it. A small portion will set you back a mere RM1.30 while a large portion costs RM1.80. There is also yong tau foo served nearby which is extremely popular too.


I have heard quite a bit about the ice kacang or air batu campur from Madras Lane hence I decided to give it a try. They have an unusual way of serving it with the cendol strips on top of the shaved ice instead of just under it making it look extremely pretty. The taste is pretty good but I found the ice not as fine as my favourite place in Old Town Petaling Jaya's Medan Selera.

Besides these stalls, you can also get assam laksa and curry laksa. I like the curry laksa as they serve lots of vegetables with it but I find the curry sauce to be too thick. The stalls around here are quite territorial so one must be careful on where you sit or else you can start a mini fight among the traders.

Madras Lane Stalls - Inside the Petaling Street wet market
From morning till lunch time
(You can access it by walking through the small road directly opposite the Indian temple on Jalan Tun HS Lee. There will be a carpark there that charges exorbitant rates and the food stalls are located just next to it. Walk a bit further in and you will get a wet market that is connected by small walkways in a form of a cross. Each way will lead you out of the wet market to the main roads around Petaling Street)

boo - the yong tau foo in the market used to be my favourite haunt! u should really try it.

@fatboybakes - ur talking about the real famous CCF. Quite worth the money actually because it's not the same as your regular CCF :)
