Potato King at Bangsar Sunday Night Market (Pasar Malam)

Last sunday evening I was at bangsar new village and noticed there was the sunday night market. As I walked along I stumbled into something very new that caught my eye with full of joy and excitement!

It was this Potato King! I got to inform you that this is not a normal potato wedges but it is a whole potato that caught in a bamboo stick! This is so amazing and interesting. When you look carefully at this deep fried potato wedges, you will notice that it is all intagged!


Firstly a whole potato is cut into size and place into the scapper for cutting, once done the whole potato is then placed into the bammboo stick before deep frying.

The owner, Mr Wan does all the deep frying, the potato wedges and also the chicken. I was told that he uses imported potatoes as local potatoes cannot produce the right texture. I was also informed that the deep fried potato wedges can be keep half a day and still able to retain its crispiness. Well I wonder why should I keep it till late as in a few second those potato wedges would had disappeared into my stomach. lol!




Got to say this potato wedges are excellent and delicious, the texture is perfect, crispy and with the flavouring (seaweed, cheese, black pepper, chicken & onion, plum etc) it is worth for a try. It only cost RM3.50(US1.10) a stick!
