Kak Min's Keropok Lekor Ori Ganu @ Persiaran Minang, Cheras, Selangor

Hands up if you love keropok lekor...

The keropok lekor at Kak Min's Ori Ganu stall tastes so good, that the minute we finished the last piece, we were already craving for more!

A childhood favorite of mine, I remember queuing up for this Terengganu specialty during recess period in school. Drenched in a sweet chilli sauce, it was a treat I looked forward to having.

Makan sekali, mahu lagi...

For the uninitiated, keropok lekor is a traditional street snack originating from the East Coast of Malaysia and now popular all over Malaysia, including Selangor. It is made from fish, starch flour (tepung sagu) and a little salt and rolled into a tubular shape, resembling a sausage, hence it is sometimes called fish sausage. It is then boiled, and served or optionally it can be deep fried. It is best eaten hot off the wok, but can also be eaten cold.

Here at Kak Min's keropok lekor stall, she sells them in two versions, the deep fried "sausage" type as well as thinly sliced crispy keropok keping. Naturally as a foodie, we had to get both types to sample. Crispy with a slightly chewy interior, it was love at first bite. All the fond memories of eating keropok lekor as a student came flooding back. The homemade chilli sauce was both sweet and spicy, hence it was agreeable even with the kids.

The thin crispy keropok lekor.. so addictive!



Fish sausage.. these are my personal favorite!


There's also karipap, samosa and donuts

If you like them crispy, then you will like the keropok keping which resembles prawn crackers but are even crunchier. For me, they were both stars in their own right. I found them so addictive and we finished them in a matter of minutes. They are also affordably priced at RM1 for 6 pieces, so next time I'm getting at least 12 pieces just for myself!

Other than keropok lekor, Kak Min also sells doughnuts, karipap and samosa. I found the samosa with its curry potato filling to be rather good too.

Kak Min's keropok lekor stall is located directly opposite SMK Bandar Tun Hussein Onn 2 and next to the Minang Ria Apartments. Since it is a street stall, there is no seating available here hence you can take away and bring it home to savour. Or if you can't wait, eat it on the spot!

Kak Min's keropok lekor is definitely one delicious teatime treat. We will be back for more!

  1. Hi there! Hope you had a great stay in Singapore, look forward to reading all about your visits to the various restaurants here. Really nice catching up with you, and let's do this again sometime, either when you are here in SG or if I come up to Malaysia.

    These snacks look wonderful. I tried the fish sausage when I was in KL recently... it was really nice. What a pity I don't find these in Singapore - Mich

    1. Hi Mich, it was a real pleasure meeting you too. Do let me know if you come to KL and likewise if I go to SG :)

      Even in KL, these keropok lekor are really hard to find nowadays. Was so happy when I found this stall and it's not too far from my house.

    1. Jennifer, I also prefer the fat long ones, but if you give me the crispy ones also no problem! :P

      The sauce was more sweet than spicy, hence they liked it. Actually my son was more interested in eating the sauce than the keropok lekor. LOL!

  3. They certainly look good. Most that I've seen very greyish, black like that... Not so appetising. I hope she opened the kuihs for you to take photographs - not all open like that. I notice it's very typical of Malay stalls over there and they're not in the least bothered about the flies...

    1. Oh what kind of sauce you like? More spicy type? I know some shops just use bottled sauce that's why not nice.

    1. Hehe I also dislike keropok lekor with more flour than fish. The thin types are just like prawn crackers, with more crunch.

  6. WOW! I love them as my tea time snack! On weekends, I will usually buy from S2 City Park..quite nice. Pisang Goreng with kicap manis also nice. =p
    But the one you had here, 6pcs for RM1 is very cheap.
