Pasembor Edgecumbe, Gurney Drive

This stall has produced consistenly good Indian Muslim pasembor.  They used to operate under a tree in Jalan Edgecumbe along with a mamak mee goreng stall.  In fact, this is the only pasembor I eat because most of the stalls produced oil-clogged prawn fritters or gravy that is not tasty.

There is a wide array of stuffs for your picking.  If you picked the expensive stuffs like those funny looking squids, you may end up paying around RM20 for a plate for two person.  🙂

Times are different now and they are selling all kinds of frozen, fast food like fish cakes, sausages and chicken meatballs.  The one in the foreground (on the bottom left of the pic) is the giant squids and their eggs.   Sometimes, a piece of this squid costs as much as RM5, so be warned.

I usually sticks to prawn fritters and the next item which LOL, we call the kote mamak.  It is flour made into  rolls and fried.

After you picked up the things you like, the stall will chop them up and add  lots of julienned turnip, cucumber and beansprouts.  Then, a thick, sweet and yet spicy gravy will be poured over them.  I prefer my pasembor to be without all those vegetables and the gravy served separately.  This way, those prawn fritters will not get soggy and soft.

This pasembor stall and the mamak mee goreng do good business during weekends.  The stall is located in a City Council hawker centre along Gurney Drive (near Bali-Bali seafood).  I had done a previous post on the mee goreng before in Food Haven.  There is a Chinese version of pasembor which is way tame from this fiery stuff.  It is called Cheh Hu.

Remember to order yourself some coconut water to ‘cool’ the stomach down or else you will be running to the toilets due to the chillies.

    Aiyoh, I wan, I wan……hungry lah. Was going to have fried calamari and onion rings, but now see this, my calamari also not sedup already lah.

    […] you want something better, it is safer you try out the Edgecumbe Road Mee Mamak along Gurney Drive which I had featured often. That hawker stall is located by the sea and only houses Muslim […]
