CHUN FUN @ HAWKER STALL, INDIA STREET/KAI JOO LANE, KUCHING


This is the last of the old school Chun Fun in town, sans the Cantonese influence. It consists of rice flor skin sprinkled with spring onion and dried shrimp (Hay Bee), rolled into a cigar shape.Packs of chilli sauce and soy sauce accompanies this finger delight. When I first tasted it, it reminded me of the Sibu's U-Chang Kueh.

The Ah Ee on the left has been at this business since God knows when. Her daughter used to help out for while, but not anymore. She sells Nasi Lemak, Chai-Tau Kueh (fried turnip cake) and Tofu-Hwa (beancurd jello). Her push-cart stall is the second one on the right if you come in from India Street.

These rolls go for 60 sen per stick. She takes home orders, and I used to buy these as hors d'oeuvres for party. You'd better head on down to this lane and get a taste of it before it disappears completely.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
