Every time i walk past the temporary pasar malam in Yishun, it's a tense fight between mouth and brain; my brain was telling me to lose some weight while my mouth was urging me to stuff something (edible that is) down the throat.
My willpower has never been strong when food is concerned but this time, i tried to 'negotiate' for a healthier deal. That's why i decided to have chicken kebab from Egypt Mr Kebab!
At first glance, i admitted it was a thick skewer of raw chicken meat that might not look appetising for the stomach and frankly, would likely give you a bad stomachache if you even attempt to scrape a bit and put it in your mouth.
The slow moving rotating spit would ensure that the meat was evenly cooked with the delectable meaty juice locked in-between the layers. And boy, you would not want to catch a sniff of that whet-the-appetite fragrance should you wish to abstain from meat.
From my experience, there are many different types of kebab and the one usually sold in pasar malam are known as donar kebab served in toasted pita bread.
Why did i say this is a healthier choice? Raw vegetables were added and the meat was roasted; a more nutritional process as compared to for example, deep fried (which is the common standard for most pasar malam food).
I love mine with mayonnaise and chilli sauce! Not exactly healthy condiments yet without them, you would be unable to appreciate its true taste! No one is expecting you to eat it like this, with the pita bread as a plate.
Served as a kebab wrap, it was really handy and the wrapped ingredients were relished in almost every bite!
To be honest, my last kebab wrap was easily more than two years ago. Although i still find this delicious (like my mom and dad), i thought the pita bread was a tad too tough, giving me the impression that it might not be that well toasted afterall.
At the pasar malam right outside the main entrance of Yishun MRT Station. The stall is located right in front of the train station.
