Rendang Tok @ Warung Rendang Kak Yong, Giant Shah Alam

sublime melt in the mouth rendang tok

A very quick one for today! Been quite busy with work hence I've not been exploring much but we did recently discover this little gem in Giant Shah Alam. Around the food court (don't eat the hotplate noodles, tastes yucky with the starchy sauce!), there's also small stalls fringing the food court that sell all kinds of food like rojak, beef soups, cold drinks, popiah, nasi lemak and this particular stall specialising in various types of rendang. You can opt to eat the spicy rendang with yellow glutinous rice (pulut kuning), roti jala, ketupat or nasi impit (compressed rice).

my hefty plate of rendang tok with nasi impit drizzled with peanut sauce (RM5.50)

I've always loved rendang tok with its dark brown fork tender beef chunks with a slightly sweetish taste. Usually cooked until dry for many hours in coconut milk, this rendang is said to originate from Perak. Not usually found everywhere here, this stall's version is excellent and priced reasonably as a plate of rendang tok with compressed rice (nasi impit) drizzled with peanut sauce is RM5.50.

Aside from rendang tok, she also sells rendang ayam (but it is more like a watery rich coconut milk curry with chicken pieces), rendang kerang, rendang paru paru and etc. We're still discovering what else is good in her stall but I definitely won't mind returning here to pack some rendang tok and ketupat from her, if I have friends over or when it is Raya.

You will see Giant on your left hand side. Stall is around the food court area within Giant's building.)

Love rendang tok n rendang kerang. Like rendang tok because of the chunkiness and the dryness of the rendang. Not forgetting sometimes people add in same isi kelapa in it.

As for rendang kerang, unlike rendang tok, I cannot try to make it here. We dont have kerang here. If I'm lucky, I can buy the frozen kerang. But what is the point. Tak de rasa kerang lagi.

flower - the ones with the grated coconut I rarely see sold but made in homes. Damn delish stuff.

leo - still hard to get a spot now but they have a "cover" to keep out the rain and sun.

worldwindows - they have that here too but I thought I rather not eat pulut for the daytime.

nomadgourmand - nope, quite rare.

sc - hmmm, now I feel like eating this for lunch.
