Food street smart in Kedah

Food street smart in Kedah

KEDAH, with its myriad of local delicacies in every nook and corner, is an undisputed food heaven, with Jalan Pintu Sepuluh as the epicentre to which all foodies flock.

The street is where the food-loving crowd go to sample a vast variety of flavours at the many stalls and eateries that are open from morning till night.

One can find many types of hawker food here, such as bak kut teh, Penang nasi lemak, porridge of all kinds, tom yam, dim sum, curry puff, char koay teow, koay teow soup and steamed pau.

For almost six years now, Lim Bee Bee, 58, has been there selling her mee ku, which has gained quite a following.

"My mee ku is made of fragrant coconut water and without the use of baking powder to raise the dough.

"It is pink in colour and comes in the shapes of turtles and peaches," she said.

Herbal dessert hawker, Ching Siew Heong, 45, said Jalan Pintu Sepuluh was similar to Jalan Petaling in Kuala Lumpur, both being old streets where Chinese hawkers had long plied their trade.

"This street is become a bustling food centre, full of food and food lovers," he said.

With bestsellers such as "three colour vegetable and fruit" and "lung yen san san hu chao", Ching has surely had a part in the street's sweet success.

The "three-colour vegetable and fruit" is a concoction of flavoured jellies in sea coconut and lychee syrup. It is priced at RM2.80.

The "lung yen san san hu chao", a herbal brew with seaweed from Sabah, can be had for RM3.30.

Jalan Pintu Sepuluh's other popular items are Kedah asam laksa, laksa lemak, curry fried rice, shrimp fried rice and lolok.
