The hunt is on!

I have been craving for Acar for few days now. Thanks to Misha's mom la.. she went and told me she is cooking acar on Monday. *sigh* made me drool and think of it for so many days and nights. So last night I went to Paramount to search for it. Both Misha and Tiger recommended the same stall but it only starts to operate at 5pm.

So after dinner last night, Big C drove me all the way to Paramount and it's not open! Dang! Yenjai mentioned before that there's also another stall nearby that sells acar. So I went and have a look. NO! NO ACAR!! Only some man selling satay! (by the way the satay look nice eh? But I was on a mission last night. So sorry satay, next craving ok?)

Big C grumbled and asked me why I need to eat acar so badly. Oi, you dunno what is craving meh? Of course I never say that to him la. I just said that *grumble grumble grumble grumble and grumble* and he stopped complaining and he brought me to pusing and pusing around Paramount and SS2 area and suddenly I thought of this place! Ah Tuan Ee's place in ss2. So we went and finally........ I GOT MY ACAR!!!!!!



I went home, snap a pic and took a bite. *sigh* Enuff said. *disappointed*

So, anyone know where to BUY nice acar in PJ area or not? I want nice one. I want with carrot, cucumber, long beans, cabbage and sesame seeds with peanut wan. Eat edi you will say Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and shake your body like the new Coke ad. How? Got ah?

  4. I don't eat acar so cannot recommend. Sorry! But is the Paramount stall your fren recommend the same stall that sells the famous roast duck?

    And about the name of the fruit at my blog, you must have missed the post after that (http://mamasbagoftricks.blogspot.com/2008/04/answer-is.html).
