I have a thing for street food. A big thing. And one of the best part about living in Malaysia is the plentiful street food. They’re pretty much everywhere, sometimes even in the most unexpected nooks and corners.
I like how quick, convenient and affordable street food is. Whether you are rich or not, a Datuk or an office boy, we are all united by our love for delicious street side grub.
I recently came across this roadside stall in Cheras called Fei Ma - meaning fat mama in Cantonese. If you’re into fried stuff, you’re definitely in for a treat.
The sweet potato balls are delightful – slightly crisp on the outside, and fluffily moist inside with generous amount of mashed sweet potato. I thought it was much better than the so-called famous one in Petaling Street.
Fei Ma also serves a variety of fried snacks like goreng pisang, leek pancake and fried popiah.
Prices: Sweet potato balls – RM1 for four, curry puff – RM1.60 each, others RM1 – RM2.
