Cendol Mamak


Once in a while I love to have Cendol and Rojak Mamak . Last week, on our way back to KT, we stopped at my hubby's favourite mamak stall . It's the Maju No 1. stall near the KK Home Decoration store in Ampang.


I just love Cendol especially Cendol with a lot of red beans and creamed corn. When I have Cendol I would usually try not to have so much of the coconut milk. Makan accessoriesnya sahaje.. I know Cheqna, it's full of fat..but once a while takpelakan Cheqna. BTW, I just found out the name "Cendol" originates from southern Thailand, where the original word is Chorn Dooi meaning "Help!", since the process of making cendol in old times was very difficult, and mutual help was often needed. Begitu rupanya... So far, I have tried Indonesian, Thai and Malaysian Cendol. They are all very delicious!


Another popular dessert- The ABC is so good but I was so full that day. I couldn't finish even half of the ABC. Mana taknya , I dah terhabiskan Cendol my hubby dulu.



My son had Maggi Goreng Mamak

I ordered Mee Rebus Ayam. (Chicken Noodle Mamak Style) . I seldom have this at a Mamak stall. Saje nak try..


There are Mee Rebus Ayam , Mee Rebus Penang and Mee Rebus Sotong. So far I've never tried Mee Rebus Sotong in my whole life!. Wonder how does it taste like. Anyone have tried Mee Rebus Sotong??


I tell you ..the Rojak at the stall is much better than the Rojak at Pelita or Kayu Nasi Kandar. Usually, I would order Rojak without the noodles because I really don't know how to eat Rojak with noodles.

BTW, The Maju No 1 stall is near to KK Home Deco in Ampang..



Before we left, I entered KK Home Deco in Ampang which is only a 100 metres away from the stall . I love going to a Home Deco shop..cuci2 mata..





Most of the stuffs at KK Home Deco can also be found in SSF Home Decor..cuma SSF tu tempatnya class sikit..that's all.

As you walk out of KK Home Deco..you will see the stall on the right..

  3. Hai TK :) I just love looking at your photos.
    Cendol, the best would still be 'Melaka made' one. :) this is not to promote Melaka. But I have been to so many places, and the cendol here is mouth watering : lots of santan and gula Melaka.
    Oooo.. I just love KK Home Decor and SSF home deco..always make it a point to 'singgah' in one of the shops when i'am in KL. Cheers :)

  5. TK Sensei,
    I'm not into home deco (must be Mama's influence) but would surely like that cendol. Without tapai or pulut of course as they're not good for cats. Imagine eating that ABC in winter...brrrr.... purrr....meow!

  12. Banyak jugakan resepi mamak yang simple tu menyelerakan, cendol, teh tarik, rojak, capati, kari kepala ikan. kiranya dia orang punya resepi ni simple tapi komersial. Cuma kadang-2 tu tengok jugalah stall mamak tu, ada yang tak berapa menepati QC untuk hygiene.

  16. We have a similar Vietnamese red bean and coconut dessert like your first picture. I dined at a Singapore and Malaysian restaurant not too long ago and the food was absolutely delicious. I can imagine how yummy the dishes you showcased are.
