Kompleks Makanan Persiaran Gurney (KMPG) located along the Gurney Drive seafront promenade is small by any standard, and is occupied by Mamak hawker stalls. Despite its size, the place has a reputation of offering delicious mee goreng and pasembor, also known as Indian rojak.
The Edgecumbe Road pasembor stall has a wide selection of specialty items besides the basic ingredients. All the fresh and fried items are neatly displayed and its prices written on the board.
A basic plate of pasembor comes with strips of cucumber, sengkuang (yam bean), blanched bean sprouts, crispy bits of crackers, cucur udang (deep-fried prawn fritters), slices of bean curd, hard-boiled egg and boiled potatoes. The ingredients are then drizzled with an orange-ish spicy and sweet peanut sauce.
The choices of beverages are aplenty and the favorites are the refreshing coconut drink and the three layer iced-tea. The latter has the comforting flavors of tea (on the top layer), milk and gula Melaka (palm sugar). Needless to say, the cool coconut drink is a great match to the spicy food.
The food court also houses the Edgecumbe Road mee goreng stall. The mee goreng is fried moist with sweet and spicy chili sauce, together with boiled potatoes, bean sprout and cucur udang (prawn fritters). Topped with stewed spicy cuttlefish, crispy fried shallot and chopped spring onions, the plate of mee goreng is best enjoyed with a drizzle of lime juice.
Business Hours are from 8am till 7.30pm and closes on Friday.
