The weather has been kinda crazy - super hot one minute and then torrential rain the next. I often search for something to cool down during those hot moments. This small stall at Brickfields, just in front of the 7 Eleven stall and near the YMCA is one of my essential stop overs especially when I am in Kuala Lumpur.
Run by a couple, they're actually a favourite place for people to partake in a little refreshment. What's really popular is their fresh young coconut juice. Most people pack back their drinks as they have limited sitting space in front of their stall.
It's at this stall you find a slightly different version of Ais Batu Campur Special (RM2.50) which we popularly know as Ais Kacang. The shaved ice is topped with shreds of young coconut flesh to add a doubly refreshing kick. Tinged with rose syrup for colour, you mix it into the shaved ice which is flavoured with gula melaka syrup and evaporated milk. Depending on how sweet you like your Ais Batu Campur, you can ask them to increase the gula melaka syrup. Underneath all the ice lies the rainbow of goodies - black cincau (grass jelly) cubes, green cendol, red bean mash, large kidney beans and yellow corn kernels. Mix up the whole concoction to slake your thirst during these crazy humid days.
