Auntie Foo Cafe
Kuala Selangor is a historical place with history focusing around Melawati Hill or Bukit Melawati. At the foot of this hill is a little commercial centre with shop lots old and new. Amongst the newer shops is a cafe called Aunti Foo that is famous for their cendol and ABC or ais batu campur.
Cendol With A Difference
Cendol is an icy dessert made using palm sugar syrup, coconut milk, and green strips of boiled rice floor. Ice is first shaved into a bowl before the mixture of ingredients is poured in. The Cendol here is different. The mixture of palm sugar syrup and coconut milk is frozen into something like a sherbet. Scoops of this sherbet mix is then scooped up and placed into the bowl instead of just shaved ice. This gives the dessert a stronger flavour.
The way cendol is served here is different.
The ABC here is also a delight especially after having spent time out in the sun visiting the historical sites up at Melawati Hill. ABC or Ais Batu Campur is an icy dessert where ice is shaved somewhat into a mountain (miniature mountain) and is placed into a bowl containing corn, red beans, jellies, nuts, etc. Milk and syrup are then poured onto the ice. A scoop of ice cream is then placed on top of the ice.
Food is also good here. What I have tried here is the spaghetti Carbonara with smoked bacon. This milky cheesy pasta dish served here is delicious. The smoke bacon certainly adds flavour to the simple dish. The serving here is also quite generous leaving me too full to walk.
The ABC or Ais Batu Campur is tasty.
