Little did I know that in the heart of Bukit Mertajam, there is this street that is famous for Cup Rice. One particular street that have a few stalls selling this and one of the famous one that my friend always eat is this Bm Cup Rice 大山脚盖饭.
This is one of a comfort street food in Penang that is quite well known in this little town. A recepi being pass down to generations and easily you could find 3-8 stalls along this area. As for this stall, currently this is the son that is taking over from his dad as this stall is easily more than 45 years in history which started in the mid 1970.
Seating capacity is only about 8 tables and you are assure to be fighting for table during peak hours. But most of his customer are here for take away. He also mention that there are customer from JB and SG usually order in bulk that could be store in freezer. Can last about 2-3 weeks after reheat.
Price still remain on the cheap side and this is pretty unique.
Fresh Roast chicken.
Each of the cup rice are all steam in the pot below, pack accordingly and drench with their home special sauce.
For dine in, they are putting into a plastic plate and top with layers of different parts of the meat.
The traditional CUP rice is like nasi banjir. Drench in thick sauce and you can just eat it like that. I order Extra Meat @ RM 7.00 with mix meat.
Find the taste is very interesting, salty, goie, some light fragrant of herb taste if I am right. Rice is soft and fluffy.
A simple dish that makes up your quick lunch.
Simple pack of Cup Rice is at RM 5. Well, if you are in the area, I think it is worth to come to try at least once where this is not the kind of street food you will find in Penang Island.
