If you’ve been into the city recently, you might have noticed that a lot of businesses have closed down or is on the brink of closing down. Many have had to come out with other ways to earn a living or sell their food. Recently, we saw an elderly auntie setting up a roadside stall selling home-cooked food in Dang Wangi, KL and we had to find out more.
67 Years Old Elderly Auntie Sets Up Stall Selling Rice Dumplings & Nyonya Food
This elderly auntie, who goes by the name Madam Choo, has set up a little stall right outside well-known restaurant, Yut Kee, selling her signature homemade Nyonya dishes. Operating from 9:30am to 2:30pm, daily, she hopes to attract some customers whom are heading into the nearby restaurants for takeaway. In actuality, she has her own homey little eatery just around the corner that used to serve economy mix rice and noodles for over 20 years. However, due to the lockdown and ban on dining out, the 67-year-old auntie had close to no customers visiting her shop.
If you’ve been around the Dang Wangi area since few years back, you might know of Mdm Choo Homemade Recipe for her wide range of homemade rice dumplings (Bak Chang). During pre-covid days, she would only sell her rice dumplings during Dragon Boat Festival. But this year, her sales of rice dumplings has dropped as the city remained empty back in June. With the surplus of ingredients, she continues to sell them until this very month.
With different bottles and containers at her stall, rest assured that everything is homemade by her. One thing you can’t miss here is definitely the rice dumplings. Flavours you can rarely get are her signature Hainanese Rice Dumpling that’s humongous and the Pork Trotter Rice Dumpling. You can also find other conventional flavours too.
Besides that, you can also get lots of other homemade Nyonya dishes, pickled foods and paus here. All homemade by her daily. If you’re a fan of Nyonya food then you’ll find your favourites like Perut Ikan, Acar Fish, Sambal Belacan, Cincalok and more. There’s also rice dishes that changes up every day.
