Operating since 1974 and managed now by the third generation, the fruit stall sited under a big tree in front of Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah Seberang Perai Utara offers fresh cut fruits and vegetables on sticks. These refreshing fruit sticks are more commonly known as ‘batang rojak’ or ‘chiam-chiam’.

Just pick and choose from the 15 to 16 varieties of seasonal fruits and vegetables. The selection includes young mangoes, jambu air,  pineapples, guavas, star fruits, umbras, cuttle fish, hard boiled quail eggs and deep-fried fish balls. Vegetable lovers will appreciate the fresh choices of cherry tomatoes, cucumber, carrots and turnips. Pineapple and guava are the crowd pleasers and one particular favorite bite is the cuttle fish.

Joseph Drouhin’s wine pairing event added to my wine tasting list!
