Madam Tang's voice has echoed through Petaling Street for years, telling of her legendary handmade muah chee (glutinous rice balls). Located by Jalan Hang Lekir's cross-junction, her run-down pushcart is easily picked up by the repetitive chant coming from a loudspeaker: "Yat lau yat lau, wat luet luet", which translates in Cantonese to mean "Top quality, silky smooth muah chee". Her Muah Chee (RM5 a box) is prepared daily, and upon order, gets a generous coating of finely chopped peanuts. Texture wise, these larger-than-usual chunks are perfection — soft but chewy at the same time. Though the original remains a treasured choice, Madam Tang also makes her muah chee in locally-inspired flavours like Ribena, pandan and the fruity lychee. This will make a stellar stop after a satisfying meal in the area.
