Kacang Pool Haji at Medan Selera Larkin is probably the best known kacang pool stall in Johor.
The popular food centre is located at Susur 5 alongside Jalan Tun Abdul Razak in Johor Bahru.
|The large pot of kacang pool gravy needs to be stirred frequently|
The kacang pool set which costs RM4 comes with a bowl of thick lumpy gravy and a thick butter toast.
The kacang pool gravy is made mainly with broad beans, ground peanuts, minced beef, and curry spices.
Its unique flavour is hard to describe. It is smooth yet grainy and nutty in some parts, and has a slightly salty and sourish taste. It is not spicy at all.
It is eaten by breaking the bread and using the kacang pool gravy as the dip.
The bread was very nicely toasted. It was slightly crispy on the outside and inside it was tender and soft. It went very well with the dip to make a delicious tea time snack.
Give kacang pool a try if you have not eaten it before. Many people got hooked on it after tasting it at Kacang Pool Haji.
