Lemang for Raya

Whenever its Hari Raya, the very special and fragrant lemang is almost around every corner of the housing estates. I read in the papers which highlighted a stall in Balik Pulau in Penang and price had increased from RM10 to 12 this year.

I bought some on Raya eve in SS15 Subang Jaya and was shocked that the price was RM15 for a short and RM18 for a longer stick of lemang. No doubt the lemang is good, santan flavour is rich and good for the next few days, it is rather expensive though.

Anyhow, lemang is still a favourite during Raya and I just hope opportunist don’t blow the price up so that we can continue enjoying this delicacy.
