The Ice Kacang, aka ABC, aka Air Batu Campur is a MUST in any hot city experiencing scorching weather. Here in KL, temperatures can get up to 40 degrees Celsius, and some days are so humid it can give new meaning to the expression ” Hotter than the hottest day in hell”.
Oh yes. Humidity so thick, you could flay it from your skin with a butter knife.
Ice kacang is a dessert served in Malaysia and is sweet-tasting and is primarily ice served with sweet flavoured syrup and jelly. A special machine is used to shave the ice and give it that characteristically ‘snowy’ texture’. Lots of delicious things go into the ice kacang mainly attap chee (palm seed), red beans, sweet corn, grass jelly, cubes of agar agar and cendol form the base. Evaporated milk, condensed milk, or coconut milk is drizzled over the mountain of ice not forgetting the aromatic gula melaka syrup.
Now the 3 reasons why the Ice Kacang from Ah Keong’s ABC is so special and unique and makes in my favourite are:
2. This ice – kacang has enough ingredients in it to make it not only a superb thirst quencher, but also a hearty dessert meal. You will leave feeling satiated and full, getting your money’s worth.
3. This stall also offers cendol, and both the Ice Kacang and the cendol are drizzled with the thickest, freshest coconut milk and gula melaka sugar that is hard to top. None of that fake packet coconut milk that some shops use, ever!
And those my friends, are the 3 reasons why I eat Ah Keong’s ABC!
