Kuching is super HOT!! Think that the sun is closer here! Decided to have some ice cold refreshments to cool down. Went to this hawker centre in Hui Sing. There is a stall there operated by this husband and wife team. Must say that they are quite elderly but are very friendly and happy to recommend one of their many shaved ice drinks!
The picture above is something called special. This has in it amongs other things, red bean, colourfull jelly strips, cendol, cincau, longans, etc etc. It is topped off with shaved ice, evaporated milk and splash of red syrup. Taste like any other ice kacang but what is noteworthy is the portion!! It was served in this huge metal bowl!! Very nice on a hot day like today.
Now, this picture above is something special. It is called matterhorn (not sure of the spelling). This one consists of lemon slices, cincau, colourfull jelly strips, cendol and logans. Topped off with shaved ice and clear syrup. This one is wonderfully refreshing. Nice blend of sweet from the syrup and sour from the lemon slices. Also served in the humungous metal bowl. Very sure you can't get this in West Malaysia (let us know if you can).
This stall also has other shaved ice drinks with weird names such as killer bee, white lady etc etc. Will visit this stall again to try all of them!
