The tale of the Petaling Street chestnut

There are many things Petaling Street here in Kuala Lumpur is famous for. Knockoff hand bags and belts, pirated DVDs, fruits of every kind, foods of every kind. And then there is the venerable chestnut stall. Shiny brown chestnuts heaped in high mounds, waiting for their turn to be roasted. Then, of course, is the roaster itself. Spinning and spinning, slowly making the chestnut such a wonderfully tasty treat. The very best nuts crumble and melt in the mouth at the first bite, like gorgeously rich textured butter. Only at Petaling Street.
