Lorong Susu(牛奶巷)

Lorong Susu(牛奶巷)

Lorong Susu, literally mean Milk Lane in Malay Language. It is located off Macalister Road. Between Irving Road and Macalister Road. There are 5 street food stalls at the right side of the road, from Macalister Road, just beside Dr Sun Yat-sen memorial house(20, Lorong Susu). You can see the Durian stall at the right junction. It is also beside the Dim Sum restaurant ,which is on the left at Macalister Road. The name of the lane is Lorong Susu, which literally means Milk Lane, but I don't see anything related to milk here. May be someone should open a milk store here.....

Ah Teik Durian Stall, at the junction of Macalister Road/Lorong Susu

The row of street food stalls at the right of the road,just beside the Dr Sun Yat-sen Memorial house. The front stall is Koay Teow Th'ng stall, the owner is standing behing the stall. The last stall is the Mamak stall.

The mamak stall selling Roti Canai, and "teh tarik"(literally mean pull tea). Tea is sweetened using condensed milk, and is prepared using out-stretched hands to pour piping hot tea from a mug into a waiting glass, repetitively. The higher the "pull", the thicker the froth. The "pulling" of tea also has the effect of cooling down the tea. Teh tarik is an art form in itself and watching the tea streaming back and forth into the glass/mug can be quite captivating.

Roti Canai(pronounced as Ro-ti Cha-nai). It is a flat bread,it may be plain flour bread, or with eggs, and it is served with dal or dhal(lentil curry)or with fish, mutton,beef, chicken and even mixed curry.

The serving, roti canai and dal. The dal of this stall is special, with ikan bilis.
