Soft, chewy and packed with a good amount of flavour, it's definitely worth giving their cucur udang a go!

    Khadijah Kitchen may not serve the best local cuisine around - particularly their range of noodles and nasi lemak, however, their cucur udang on the other hand isn't exactly all that bad. The flavours may not have been the strongest, but it is still addictive enough with the side of chili sauce. In any case, it's a great quick and easy snack on a Monday afternoon. 

    Tips

    Foodpanda delivery available.

    A series of not very delicious food, but good cucur udang.

Among the best sellers here are their nasi ayam, asam pedas, nasi lemak and lontong. But if you yearn for a quick nibble, don’t miss their pisang goreng and cucur udang. The prawn fritters are fried to a golden hue and chopped into morsels and served with a spicy peanut sauce.

    Gulam Mee

    If you are wondering what sort of dish is Gulam Mee, relax, it’s only a name of a restaurant that is well-known for their mee goreng and mee rebus, and the flavours absolutely live up to their reputation. If it wasn’t for their noodles, their cucur udang would have seized the spotlight straightaway. Apart from their crispy cucur udang, the real deal is filling the platter with halved boiled eggs, fried potatoes and tofus as well as julienned cucumbers. The thick peanut sauce deserves a mention too, thus just pick, dip and devour. 

    Tips

    The noodles portions are pretty huge, therefore don't be too greedy with your prawn pritters

    Things to expect

    Quick service and open air dining space also available
