You can probably find 6-7 stalls selling the cup rice around this area.
The much well-known is the BM Cup Rice, which has been around for more than 40 years old; passed down to their third generation.
Being so well-known, this place is really crowded during the lunch hour.
There's only around 8 tables if you plan to dine here; and fortunately, most of their customers are here for take-aways and the dine-in turn-around were also quick.
Cup Rice, consist of fragrantly steamed fluffy white rice, covered with shredded roasted pork and roasted chicken slices.
The white rice is steamed in an aluminium cup (where the name came from), which is later turned upside down before getting covered with all the shredded meats and slices.
This mountain of goodness is then drenched generously with dark braising gravy before serving.
The dish also comes with complimentary soup, served in the same aluminium cup that were used to steam your fragrant rice (when you dine in).
Pickled green chili padi is definitely recommended to go with the rice for extra zings.
All of these good stuffs only costs like RM5, which the portion is big enough for most people.
