Street food that have been choose by ours is Makan What MY. This business is founded by one of the MSU Students, Sara Muzam, 21 years old. The business started in September 2019. The founder is one of the Instagram influencers which makes it an opportunity for her to start and promote her
business on this platform. Not just a food business, she also sells shawls through Instagram applications. Other than Instagram, she also has been using TikTok making videos promoting her business as well as making content.
This street food stall was located at Jalan Platinum E7/E, Seksyen 7, Shah Alam Selangor or people can just waze Boba What Seksyen 7. The street food stall is operated from 12.30pm until 9.30pm. The long opening hours from noon attracts school students and workers to buy their corn dog during lunch hour, and people can still buy it until it is closed. Makan What MY started by only selling boba drinks and then they start selling corn dog in early 2020. Makan What MY have their own Instagram page, @makanwhatmy or can be contacted through Whats App at +6011-5637129 if they want to order early, or bulks.
The menu that we tried was their corn dog which was priced at RM6.00. They have the promotion that when you buy three corndogs, the price will be RM 15.00 only which means it is a great deal. When we arrived at the stall, there were two workers working there. As soon as we order, we only have to wait for less than five minutes to get our food. The presentation is nice in terms of color which shows the crispiness, and they topped it with sauces to make it more flavorful.
It is the best time to consume it as soon as possible. This is because the mozzarella cheese inside the corndog still melt and you can see it pulled through every bite. The amount of cheese they put in is so generous which makes the price so worth it every penny. The sausage inside is also big and mouthful which is so delicious to eat when you are craving for the Korean snack. We can guarantee that they are using the best quality of sausage based on the taste
because they are so good and not the normal and cheap sausage.
Makan What My also provides online delivery around the area through Foodpanda apps so that the customer could just wait at their house while the rider picked up their orders. This is a great opportunity for the business to reach more customers.
We give rate to this street food nine out of ten as it is one of the best corn dog that is actually excellent for the price and fact that it is better as a food stall than the one that served in malls. The food are also suitable for all ages so we can share it with all of our family members. Not to forget, they are also selling Brown Sugar Fresh Milk with Cream Mousse which cost only RM7.00. These two combination is perfect for your snacks with friends and family members.
During this pandemic of Covid-19, many businesses already closed down because of difficulties to sustain in the market and gain profit. As a consumer, we should always support local businesses, especially the small one because these entrepreneurs depend on their sales to put food on the table for themselves and their families. Even if it is not much as it seems, it would be beneficial and helpful for them to keep on being in the market.
