Nian gao (or call it kuih bakul). Usually, I have them during the Chinese New Year. But then, I found this really good stall in Brickfields and well.. you can say, I've had my fair share of it all year round.
And depending on luck, it can get crowded at times. And the queues can be long. So much so that you have to wait for 20-30 minutes for a fresh batch to be cooked.
The owner, Mr Chiam and his son operates this stall and sells not just the nian gao but also other fried snacks.

While prices has gone up over the years, but it's still rather reasonable... after all, the price to pay for probably one of the best (if not the best) nian gao in KL!
The other food I like from here much is the also must-try pisang goreng (fried banana fritters). The flour makes the bananas rather crispy yet the inside is still fresh. It's always a good combination with the nian gao!
If you are in Brickfields, or the surroundings (eg KL Sentral), and looking for a good afternoon snack... look no further. I bet you will be like me... always coming back for more!
