Despite raining the night before, the weather was having serious mood swings, hitting us with sweltering heat during the day that made sweat drip from our foreheads from just sitting around doing nothing. We were given 2 choices for a late lunch and we opted for the exotic sounding Warong Coconut Shake. Personally, I have never heard of the drink before but I have been told it is pretty popular around these parts. Apparently, many "imitation" stalls have been set up but none have succeeded in replicating the original taste and flavour of this particular stall.
The famous coconut shake drink
Yet again having locals bring us around was a plus point. The stall was located by the roadside nearby a Caltex petrol station, somewhere we would have had some difficulty locating had we been here on our own. The stall has all sorts of kuih muih, nasi lemak and mee goreng but the main star was their coconut shake (RM1.50). Every customer had a coconut shake drink to themself. There was a long queue forming at the coconut shake station for takeaways. The coconut shake is made(from what I observed) by blending together coconut water, grated coconut flesh, and soda water. There is also a 'special' version (RM2.00) on offer, which includes an additional scoop of Walls ice-cream to top off the shake.
The drink was amazingly refreshing and the pieces of coconut flesh provided a nice crunch to a creamy and delicious shake. It was definitely the perfect thirst-quencher, something you will definitely not tire of drinking!
As far as food goes they do have a rather tasty nasi lemak, fragrant and accompanied by a nice sambal. There are also various curry puffs on offer (sardines, potatoes, coconut), tofu filled with vegetables, and I even spotted something resembling a chocolate muffin and also some sausage filled rolls. The folk here operate based on trust, so we had to keep track of the number of kuihs we took for the bill later on.
We stepped in with sweaty foreheads and blurry minds but left the stall with renewed vigor for the day ahead!
