Uniquely JB style of ice kacang with sweet bitter chocolate sauce. If you are visiting JB, don't leave without trying JB ice kacang. Ah Yong founded Gerai Ayong 40 years ago with his sister - it was one of the many push carts stalls operating at Lido beach. Several of the well loved Lido beach stalls moved to Tepian Tebrau, which explains the popularity of the food centre.
Gerai Ayong's grilled stingray is a star. The stingray was fresh. Expertly grilled, its flesh was soft and wet with briny sweet natural juices. The sambal chili sauce was robustly savoury spicy yet it did not overpower the fish's natural flavours. The sourish spicy sweet onion chili pickle added zesty zing and juicy crunch to the savoury spicy dish.
Squares of tofu grilled to a golden brown crisp outside were smothered in a thick sticky savoury sweet spicy nutty sauce. Char Kuih Bakar. It's short pieces of yew char kway grilled and slathered with a heavy savoury sweet spicy nutty sauce (same sauce as tauhu bakar).
