The best yam rice in Bukit Mertajam 大山脚 can be found in the town area, below IBM tution centre. I used to have my tuition class here during my high school days for some of the teachers are really good. FYI my father teaches Form 6 Physics here too :P
A set for 2 costs RM9.60, that’s with additional pork meat balls.
It is very easy to know if the yam rice is ‘ho liao’ (good) or not. Notice the white chunks? Those are yam, the more the better.
Extra meat balls for me because they are very sweet and tender. The soup tastes sourish because they boil it with salted vegetables. That’s the taste to keep you appetized!
On a side note, it was the first time I tasted umbra semboi.. Not really my kind of juice lol.
