The flavorful and crispy cucur udang and the refreshingly cool air campur.
|Cucur udang (and tauhu) and air campur, side by side|
|Seen here is one cucur udang (RM0.60) and one tauhu (hidden, RM0.60) with special sauce. The special sauce is a mixture of chilli sauce with something 'secret' plus some crushed nuts, giving it the spicy, sweet taste.|
|Close up photo of the cucur udang; made from mixture of flour, taugeh (bean sprouts) and prawns (at most, negligible in amount, unfortunately), fried to crispy brown.|
|The TRUTH: cucur udang and tauhu seen here, cooked in oil re-used for ?times and some are overcooked (black in color), carcinogenic? Hmm...|
|Who's this young man? He's the one preparing one of my all time favorite drink, air campur!|
|Ingredients: Air mawar on your left and selasih on your right|
|Ingredient: Getah anggur|
|Bird eye view of my air campur. It's the perfect drink in the hot afternoon, can rival even cendol or air batu campur (ABC)|
I'd recommend the air campur x 2 if possible!
For cucur udang and tauhu, ordering just one each should suffice for the first time. For the second tiem, just skip it (at least until they adopt healthy cooking by not re-using cooking oil for '?infinite' times and maybe use vegetable oil instead?
Tasty Or Not?
Ratings: 9/10 (air campur), 4.5/10 (cucur udang) and 2/10 (tauhu)
