My favourite all-time after work evening tea hangout :)
I have known this place for quite some time and nothing beats anything than drinking hot ginger milk tea/ teh halia at this place. Located just opposite Kampong Glam cafe, you can order food from them and bring over to eat at the sarabat stall.
The sarabat stall does bear some curry puffs, malay/ indian snacks and even nasi sambal goreng (Beef/chicken/fish) to cater to the patrons. If you wish to order food from Kampong Glam cafe, you can do so but do return the empty plates once consume as a gesture of politeness to the owner of the sarabat stall.
Every single day, this stall is always full especially after 6pm. Normally, I would either hang out with my colleagues or friends and we'll drink to our hearts' content. There's a special old, calm and memorable feeling that you will enjoy. Perhaps the rich heritage of old shop houses located at the place gives you that ambience.
After a hard day of work, this is one of the best place to chill and relax.
You want sarabat? You get sarabat, no less!
A very small stall, almost non-descript and helmed by some grizzled veterans. They make some very good sarabat tea. I love their teh halia. I often request mine to be strong and they always oblige me by adding a stronger dose of ginger balanced with the sweetness of the milk they add.
The resulting drink is usually not cloyingly sweet unlike some places. Even on a bad hair day, their worst tea still tastes okay, just that it lacks the customary OOmph!
They do serve some packed rice, probably nasi sambal goreng and some sugee cookies and kueh. Apart from that, don't expect a full meal from this place, but if it is tea that you seek, you came to the right place.
