    Located on the outskirts of Padang Brown, this long stretched hawker center offers a parade of mouthwatering local delights, which includes this humble stall. What make them so highly-rated is their fresh prawns which are absolutely big and juicy! Moreover, it’s not like you get one per morsel, it’s topped with a handful; the ratio of prawns to the fat fritter is equal. Stack up your cucur with fried lobak, fried tauhus and sausages, it’s a realm of savoury bites, paired with toothsome sauce.

    Don’t be deterred by the old-school façade, once you’ve stepped in, it just intrigues your palate to start devouring, especially their cucur udang. The prawn fritters have a crispy surface yet spongy and savoury inside and allures to be paired with chunks of sausages, onion fritters and pieces of cucumbers. Just dunk the little gems into the treacly sauce, which has the right balance of sweet and spicy.  Pure cucur udang hedonist spot, not to be missed!
