Lobak and Leng Chee Kang Stall, Sin Tat Garden Raja Uda Butterworth (Only Available During Festivals at Temples around the area)

Friendly and sporting Mr. Loh posing for my camera at his lobak stall The lobak that I bought................................................The Leng Chee Kang Stall One thing I missed after staying in KL for so long are the Lobak and Leng Chee Kang Stall that are set up whenever there is a celebration at Chinese Temples around Butterworth, along with the opera show, of course. These make shift stall normally have very small tables and chairs. Other common hawker foods that accompany this kind of lobak stall are the Assam Laksa, Leng Chee Kang (sweet dessert drinks) and also the sotong kangkung (squid and water convolvulus with sweet spicy sauce). I met Mr. Loh the owner of this type of Lobak Stall (Chinese 5 spice Meat Rolls) in Raja Uda during the recent Kew Ong Yah festival in Raja Uda. He is well known among the locals around this area. My favourite choices are the lobak, prawn fritters, fried tofu and fu chuk. Dunk these in the chili and also the thick lobak sauce, the taste is yummy. After eating all the fried spicy stuff, a bowl of Leng Chee Kang provides a refreshing dessert!
