Chinese Hot Dog?

You know how sometimes you eat something but never know what it's called? Well such is the case with today's food review. For convenience's sake let's just call this the Chinese Hot Dog. It's a simple snack. A bun is toasted with butter over charcoal fire. A strip of barbequed dried meat (the kind you receive for Chinese New Year) and some meat floss is placed in between and smothered with chilli sauce.

My bun being toasted over the charcoal pit.

After toasting the bread the elderly uncle uses a penknife to scrape off all the soot from the bun. This time however he tore the bun while doing that for me :P

Chinese Hot Dog (RM1.70). The bun is slightly torn.

What's inside.

It's a very delicious snack! The bread is very nicely toasted. Everything toasted by charcoal just tastes better! The filling is very well paired with the chilli sauce. It's hard to find this snack being sold anywhere in KL nowadays. Perhaps it's possible to find it being sold in some pasar malams but then I haven't seen any for years.

You can find this uncle operating directly opposite the Tin Ai Ker Pan Mee stall in Chow Kit.

james: monkey hands ah? ahhaha... never really noticed it before.

meiyen: believe it or not the first time i ate this was only a few years ago :)

earl-ku: but there's a piece of grilled meat inside so it's not just a Meat Floss sandwich! Actually the name Chinese Hot Dog is used in some pasar malam stalls.

boo_licious: Yups!
