Seri Muka

It's fasting month once again, and as always I start to get huge cravings for seri muka for buka puasa. I've always been a fan of the seri muka, and I really think it fits perfectly during buka puasa. The combination of pulut and topping yg manis (never really knew what they're made of) is soothing and pleasant to my tastebuds.

My friend says that its weird, craving for seri muka. Whatever.

Unfortunately, finding the best seri muka is such a big challenge. There's like a million people selling seri muka at the Pasar Ramadan, and they all look nice. But I'd say only a handful could pass as decent while the rest prove to be complete letdowns. There's no one and truly perfect seri muka, not yet at least.

My quest now is to find the best seri muka in KL. Any ideas where to find such a thing?

In the Satok Ramadan Bazaar, in Kuching ... got lotsa good ones here, esp if you see the old kakaks selling them. guess that's too far for you huh... Slmt Berbuka Puasa!

Since banyak sangat orang jual murtabak kat satu pasar ramadhan and rasa semua lebih kurang sama aje, kalau aku beli murtabak, criteria aku ialah gerai yang boleh buat murtabak paling tepat segi empat tepat heh heh.

Aku rasa yg lagi susah nak cari kuih that can get it right is Kuih Pelita.

And I can't even find Apam Balik in Kuantan. Wierd.

Ladydin: Kuching is a bit too far to travel to, considering I'm looking for a kuih that's only worth RM1. But I'll keep that in mind the next time I stop by during bulan puasa.

I'm not a big fan of kuih pelita, but I'm sure someone somewhere can get it right. There's still hope! tapi if you say there's no apam balik kat Kuantan, then something is definitely wrong. By the way, what type of apam balik yg kau cari? Yg besar or the small crisp ones? I like the small ones.

pyan: good luck finding the perfect square murtabak. Murtabak dah common sangat sampai malas nak layan dah.

it's no trouble if u really want something bad enough, even of RM1 worth. But buzz me when ur around, i could show you where.

Froggy: Type "seri muka" in Google Image Search and when you see the green thing on top of the white stuff then that's seri muka.
