Food truck is all the rage these days, but they have actually been around since the days hawkers started operating from those old school Daihatsu vans. The only difference the “modern” food truck is that they now cook inside the truck instead of by the side of the truck. Same difference if you ask me.

Today, we look at one of the popular original food truck by KLCC – Mat Rock Ayam Goreng Kunyit.

The truck is parked along Jalan Yap Kwan Seng right opposite the Australian High Commission on weekdays over lunch hours and has been operating for a number of years.

It’s a simple affair, lineup, get your ayam kunyit with rice, with an option for additional fried egg (RM 6, RM 5 without egg), and go back to your office for the noms.

The secret ingredient here is that instead of chili padi, a special blend of sambal in their ayam kunyit. The result is a rather tasty dish of ayam kunyit with a kick, I liked it.

For a no frill lunch on the cheap, this is quite a decent option. The keropok (RM 2) here is pretty good as well and I’ll recommend getting a pack to share to go with lunch.

For those who’re too lazy to move, Mat Rock offers delivery services for free if you order 10 packs of above, otherwise a charge of RM 2 is imposed, which is more than fair I guess.
