Delicious Makan Trail In Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia! Part 4 (Da Bei Shui 大杯水)

While we were at Kedai Makanan Swee Kee, Benny noticed a banner across the street (in front of a food centre) informing their regulars that Mee Jian Kueh had moved to Da Bei Shui Kopitiam. These were the two places we wanted to go and now that they are housed under one roof, our route was shortened.

Kedai Minuman Buah-Buahan Cew Pure better known as Da Bei Shui (大杯水).

Killing two birds with one stone.
It was Benny’s intention to visit Da Bei Shui as well as the Mee Jian Kueh stall which coincidentally moved into the same kopitiam.
When Tony saw Mr. Chai, he recognised him as one of the street food vendor he had blogged.
Mr. Chai used to sell peanuts pancakes on his make-shift tricycle stall.

Da Bei Shui (大杯水) literally translates to big cup water and now we know why 😉

This morning’s haze as very bad and I could detect “burnt” smell when in Singapore.
The polluted air condition did not improve in Malaysia – we’re suffering the same fate.
I was parched the whole morning and da bei shui was most appropriate.

I had lime juice with sour plum and the bonus was a few chunks of freshly cut honeydew.
This big jug cost MYR7.

Juggling between two stoves of fluffy crisp pancakes, Mr. Chai paused for only a few seconds, just enough time for me to capture a facial shot.

Mr. Chai never stopped working since the time we arrived till we left.
We were number 19th tray when we placed our order.
About 2 hours later as we got up to leave, I heard him telling the newly arrived customer “you’re number 24th”.

This is one tray and it costs MYR5 and would be sliced into 10 rectangular pieces.
One piece costs 50 sen but so far I’ve only seen people buying by the trays.

See the man dousing the almost ready peanut pancake with melted margarine?
Fat is definitely flavour here 😀

Mr. Chai can customise your orders, thick or thin crust, less sugar, less oil, no oil, whatever you want.

This piece would be cut lengthwise in half.
The smaller curved shape further sliced into 4 pieces and the longer half sliced into 6 pieces.

The sliced pieces from a tray.
We had standard order without any special requests.
The piece I would love most is the first one nearest to you.
I like thicker, more doughy Mee Jian Kueh and not the ultra crispy paper thin type.

Ground peanuts, fine sugar, melted margarine made up the filling of a more sweet than savoury tasting snack.

We had a very relaxing time at this kopitiam which we spent more than an hour, while waiting for Ricky’s friend who lives in Batu Pahat arrive. I was nagging at the boys to go for the famous nasi briyani kambing and a side of chicken but none of them budged. They were filled to their necks by then. But in another half hour, you wouldn’t believe what a big meal we had! Keep a lookout 🙂

Happy traveling, eating and bonding!
