THOSE familiar with the Kuala Lumpur suburb of Bangsar are likely to have seen a modified white van which has trays of various tea-time snacks on display.
Among the snacks sold at this fixture along the main drag of Jalan Telawi are curry puffs, vadai and pakora.
M. Arun Kumar, 26, has been operating the food truck with his aunt N. Usha Nanthini, 55, for the past nine years.
They also have a stall in Jalan Kasipillay in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.
Arun told StarMetro the people who used to run the food truck at the same spot were family friends who gave up the business.
If I have a day off on weekdays, this is my favourite stall to visit in the late afternoons.
It is where I get my curry puff and vadai fix.
The fried snacks including the vegetarian curry puffs are sold at RM1 each.
Also available are ulundu vadai and masala vadai.I find the vadai sold here to be the perfect size, not too big or small.
They are crispy and not greasy.
As for the vegetarian curry puffs, I once bought them for an office lunch and they were snapped up like hot cakes.
“The curry puffs are made according to a family recipe,” said Arun.
Cekodok, pakora, kuih kasturi (green bean fritters) and fried tapioca balls are among the snacks on sale.
The food truck also has Malay kuih such as sago, ondeh-ondeh, kuih ketayap and pulut inti.
However, the best-seller is the curry puff – Arun and his aunt can sell between 200 to 250 puffs a day.
The stall on Jalan Telawi is open from 10.30am to 5.30pm daily and on alternate Sundays.
