Kota Bahru Food Trip Pt. 2

Just realised that with the amount of food we ate, the Kota Bahru postings might turn out to be an epic! Mmm...I wonder how many parts will there be in the end?
After resting for awhile, it was tea time! They took me to Sudut Selera Jhim Kee; a small shop lot at Jalan Wakaf Mek Zainab which sells mostly snack food.
We ordered ABC (Air Batu Campur), also known as Ice Kacang. We had the one with ice cream but didn't ask what the "economi" (economy) version came without for a mere RM1! I was also curious about kuih malas but we didn't order it as we had also asked for some fried popiah.
It was a hot day and having the ABC was a welcome treat. It was nice and having it in a small town (and the plus point was that it was served in a metal bowl!) made it even nicer. The fried popiah was simple, no fancy filling; just shredded turnip and bits of carrot with some seasoning. Nicely done with minimal oil, the popiah skin was thin and crispy. Eaten with chilli sauce, it was simple finger food at its best.

To be continued ...

The ABC is taller/higher than Mount Kinabalu.
