Tagged: My Favourite Food!

I was tagged by “kah jie” WMW on describing one of my favourite food few days ago. I usually just know how to eat, what to eat and where to eat but now that you ask me “What’s my favourite food?”, I’ll be like “Errr…. wait a minute” or “Darn, lemme think about it”!

My answer? Ais Kacang, that’s it.

When I was in primary school, I used to went for tuition classes in town at night. My mom’s ex-boss (I just call her Auntie) will come and pick me after my class ended at 10pm, as her house is nearby to my tuition centre. Sometimes, she’ll bring me to Tong Sui Kai for dessert before my dad come to her house to bring me home. As a kid, I like all things associated with ice and peanuts. That’s how I started to fall in love with ais kacang until now.

The colourful presentation of the ais kacang mostly are derived from the ingredients used such as grass jelly (black), cendol (green), sweet cream corn (yellow), red bean/kidney bean (maroon), jellies (red, yellow, green), sago(translucent white), peanuts (beige), red syrup (pinkish red) and gula melaka (brown). As the ingredients varies from one stall to another, some people also add in attap chee or palm fruit, nata de coco (white), fruits, chocolate syrup and Sarsaparilla (Sarsi) syrup. According to floggers from Penang , Jian and Durianberry, you won’t find any ais kacang with gula melaka in Penang as most ais kacang vendors there are using the Sarsaparilla syrup and red syrup.

My favourite version of ais kacang would be the one laden with gula melaka and topped with one scoop of ice cream on it. It’s a bliss to savour it on a hot day.

  10. There are so many varieties of ais kacang now. You can get the RM1.50 ABC at the road side stalls, you can get the typical hawker centre ais kacang, you can get malaccan ais kacang, or even the fruit ice kacang in Penang. Yumm
