As we were walking along Petaling Street after our curry laksa breakfast at Madras Lane, we saw Madam Tang’s little Muar Chee stall. Muar Chee is actually glutinous rice balls coated with peanut and sugar. Even though she had a speaker repeatedly calling out for her customers, she would still call using her own voice and inform them how good her snack is.
Based on the number of newspaper articles posted around her stall, she is definitely not new in this business. One article which was written in 2006 mentioned that she had been in this business for 50 years. This means that in 2016, this would be her 60th year in this business.
Though the muar chee look simple but the time it takes to prepare it is about 4 to 5 hours. She had to wake up early, about 3am to 4am just to cook and by 10am, she would be at Petaling Street to sell her muar chee.
There are 6 flavours – original, lychee, ribena, black sesame, mango and pandan. We didn’t had the chance to try them all, but the pandan flavoured muar chee was quite good. The only thing I didn’t like was that it wasn’t cut into smaller pieces.
