To be perfectly honest, I didn’t really know that we have a Velodrome in KL and thought that national cyclists must practice somewhere outside the country. Even more surprising to me was that our velodrome is actually more famous for the various food stalls by the side of the structure than the sports facility itself.

Of the many stalls at Dataran Velodrom, Nasi Ayam A. Hassan situated by right corner at the end is by far the busiest, and happened to be the one we went to a couple weeks ago for some of their famous fried chicken and other dishes for lunch.

While there are some seating areas under the roof, most people choose to dine under a sort of make shift canopy at the back of the stall. It’s usually pretty packed over lunch time.

You may have recalled that I wrote about A. Hassan at Awan Besar rest stop earlier, this branch at Velodrom is where they started out.

We ordered some ikan bakar (grilled fish), ikan patin (silver catfish), plenty of ulam (raw vegetable), ayam kampung goreng (free range kampong chicken), and even gulai daging (beef).

While they provide various types of sambal and condiments, my favorite is the tempoyak (fermented durian sambal). It is a bit of an acquired taste, but once you learn to enjoy them, you’ll be hooked. The pungent yet irresistible aroma is something only a tempoyak connoisseur could enjoy.

The most unique thing here though is actually their signature jus ciku (sapodilla fruit), it tastes like, well, ciku juice. I haven’t even heard of this drinks, let alone having tried it anywhere else. If you even remotely like ciku, you’ll really enjoy this drinks. It’s sweet and has a slightly coarse texture to it. Like many tropical fruits, it is actually originated from Central America.

If you’re up for some wholesome Malay fair, do check out the hawker stalls at Velodrom. We spent about closer to RM 30 per pax for this, but it was oh so worth it!
