Best Cucur Udang in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Revered as a delicacy across the country, prawn fritters or more affectionately known as Cucur Udang is commonly a tea time snack for Malaysians of all ages. Deep-fried to an amber-brown hue, the fritters are chock-full with bean sprouts and couple of fresh prawns perched atop, giving it that firm crunchy bite on the outside and pillowy joy on the inside. Well, no deep-fried food is complete with a sauce towing along, expect a chili or peanut sauce to complete the glee here. It’s so worthy, these morsels have found its way as common consorts in pasembur, mamak fried noodles and mee rebus. Wherever in the list you decide to start with, never be skimp on your orders as each mouthful definitely turns you into a hedonist.

    Nyonya Leaf

    What started off as a Nyonya kuih catering back in the year 2011, today has emerged as a to-go spot to chomp down authentic Nyonya cuisine and local favourites. Planted in Komtar JB, its constantly brimming with patrons amid a sleekly designed and comfortable ambiance. Tuck yourself on the tiffany coloured chairs and fill up the marble table with as many dishes as possible, and their cucur udang is among the trump cards. Their prawn fritter is different from the norm, it shrivels to a bowl shape while swimming on the fryer as its much thinner and crisper compared to others in the list. Each mouthful just crackles and explodes with excitements with bean sprouts and kuchai leaves, and unshelled prawns resting above. Dip in their sweet-spicy chili sauce for extra indulgence. 

    Tips

    No artificials, preservations and colourings are used. If you're health conscious, devour to your heart's content

    Gerai Cucur Udang @ Taman Sri PulaiHalal a81b201f94b2180a29928950eefa06850871fc85c2ba8fcb39753bdbcdfb49cfCertified

    Tucked tranquilly at the heart of Taman Sri Pulai, this modest eatery has been a popular haunt to savour delicious and straightforward local delights. A big perk here is the prawn fritters are fried upon order; expect your golden snack served piping hot with cubes of fried tauhus and cucumber slivers. The symmetry of chewiness and crunchiness is spot-on, and dunking in their homemade peanut sauce just elevates the whole pick and dip experience. As its wallet-friendly too, nothing stops you from having another basket.

    Nasi Lemak and Laska are widely praised too

    Nestled in a bustling food court, you’ll undoubtedly spot tables graced with few plates of cucur udang, either to whet the appetite or solely a fritter feast. And that brings you over to this humble stall that churns out the latter straight off the scorching vat. The rugged surface of the fritter is resoundingly crisp and the inside offers a doughy delight with bean sprouts and prawns. Accompanied with fried tauhus and slices of cucumber, it’s hard to stop once you start.
