Batu Lanchang Food Court is a great local favorite for lunch and teatime. There is a wide variety of hawker food available from the 50 stalls in this food court.

The Batu Lancang Pasembur is one of the must-try dishes. This Chinese style pasembur comes with generous amount of shredded cucumber, yambean, fried fritters, bean curd and jellyfish. All the ingredients went well with the sweet and slightly spicy potato gravy.


Another crowd favorite is the Char Koay Kak from stall no. 33. The owner, Chan Kok Meng has been operating the stall for the past 25 years. The dish prepared in a flat hot wok with bean sprouts, egg, and chopped radish has a hint of burnt aroma and spiciness. The dish can either be served alone, or with add-on of prawns, fish ball and crab sticks for a much sweet flavor.


For those seeking a wholesome meal, there is probably nothing more satisfying than a plate of nasi tomato from Shariff Nasi Tomato stall. This plate of rice is truly delicious with beef rendang, sambal ikan bilis, fried egg and stir-fried vegetables.


Do not miss out the Mee Goreng from stall no. 30 as well. The yellow noodle fried with deep-fried fritters, boiled potato, beansprouts and egg is well flavored, with a fiery amount of spiciness as requested.


The trays at Kheng Nyonya Kuih stall no. 29 are filled with a wide variety of traditional Nyonya kuihs like ang koo, onde-onde, kuih lapis, kuih talam and kuih dadar. Another stop has to be at Yeoh Bakery stall no. 35, the place to grab some hot deep-fried treats. Classic fried treats such as potato balls, tapioca balls, various curry puffs and doughnuts are fried on the spot. All these small bites are delightfully addictive.


For a sweet finish, hop over to stall no.39 for a refreshing bowl of Ice Kacang (Ais Batu Campur) with fine shaved ice, syrups, ice cream, red beans, sweet corn, cincau (grass jelly) served drizzled with milk. Another good choice is a glass of cooling sugar cane juice.


Batu Lanchang Food Court, with a wide array of Malaysian food, has so much to offer to its customers!
