Unique JB Style Kacang Pool in Selera Johor Food Court (Plaza Larkin)

Johor-Style-Kacang-Pool

Heard a lot of good things about a popular snack known as kacang pool which is originally from Egypt where it is known as ful mudammas or ful medames.

So, I tried it today at the Kacang Pool Haji stall located at Selera Johor food court next to Plaza Larkin in Johor Bahru.

The kacang pool set comprises a bowl of gravy, a sunshine egg, and a (very) thick white bread toast. The set costs RM4 (2012 price).

The heavy gravy is made mainly with ground broad beans and minced beef blended with curry spices, and fresh onions, garlic, chillies, and eggs.

Kacang pool is eaten by breaking the bread and dipping it in the gravy.

The thick margarine toast coated with the spicy, nutty gravy makes a delicious snack. The gravy is thick and grainy but not coarse. It has a unique mildly spicy, full bodied flavour, and a nutty taste and texture with a subtle beefy aroma.

Definitely one of my favourite tea time snacks - perfect for tête-à-têtes with friends.
