Speak of nostalgic tastes and a number of food come into mind. Today, we’re bringing you on a trip back to olden days where fresh charcoal toasted buns are available everywhere you go. Of course, you can’t forget about the bak kwa and chicken floss combo with it. Then, you should know about this uncle that has been selling bak kwa (dried meat) bun for half his life and he’s still selling it at Pudu, KL!
80-Year-Old Uncle Sells Charcoal Grilled Bak Kwa For Almost 40 Years
If you work at Pudu, KL or frequent the area, then you must know of this legendary bak kwa bun seller outside ICC Pudu. This 80-year-old uncle started his business back in 1982 and have continued to sell his iconic bak kwa bun up till this very day.
With no family of his own, he’s satisfied with just being to afford to lead a life with the bare necessities. He mentioned that looking his age, he may not be able to work for long. But he does plan to continue selling bak kwa bun until the day he won’t be able to.
Many patrons head here for a true taste of nostalgia. From the traditionally toasted buns on charcoal grill to the flavours of everything sandwiched in between. The bak kwa bun basically consists of a slice of bak kwa, chicken floss and cucumber, then it’s topped with your choice of chilli or tomato sauce (or not add any sauce). Add all that ingredients together and you get a magical mash of childhood nostalgia in every bite.
