Oishii Onigiri & Laksa Beras Food Trucks

Roaming Damansara Heights, Ampang, Petaling Jaya & beyond, this Japanese food truck offers everything from takoyaki to bentos & donburi, but true to its name, it's chief offering is onigiri. You'll find at least four types of rice balls at any given time here, with fillings that range from salmon, eel, scallops, sesame chicken & crab sticks to mashed potatoes, sweet corn & egg mayo. We tried the ebiko, filled with lots of crunchy shrimp roe (RM4 for one, RM10 for three). The tamago mentai might also be worth investigating if you ever spot this bright-coloured vehicle - soft, warm omelette strips, cooked to order, topped with a creamy layer of intensely savoury pollock roe (RM6.90).

Scratch that itch for a lightly tangy, aromatic assam laksa, served fresh & hot for only RM4.50, at the Laksa Beras food truck, parked beside Menara Binjai, a short stroll from the Ampang Park LRT station, operating most weekdays, 4pm through 8pm.

  1. These trucks are so convenient. We do not have any here, only in Kuching and they are starting in Miri too, I hear.

  2. I more interested in the first one! There are many food trucks in KLCC area these days, but don't think any of them selling Japanese food (or I miss it?). :D

    1. CK: ya, i think most of the trucks near klcc serve chinese, malay and middle eastern food - they try to sell food that's more affordably priced :)
