The latest food truck in KL – Amaze K

Amaze K Food Truck

I was on my way to a haircut the day before when I passed by this food truck. It was close to dinner and my better half was cooking so I didn’t want to spoil my appetite, but I was a little hungry and needed something to tide me over for a couple of hours, so I pulled over.

Halal Food Truck KL

Amaze K Cafe is actually a food truck that sells all kinds of hotdogs. It was their very first day of operations when I visited on Friday evening! I talked to the two guys running it for a while and they said they might not be located here all the time but they decided to situate themselves in front of Encorp Strand Mall for their première.

I asked for a recommendation and got their flagship Mushroom & Chicken Hotdog (RM 10). It’s the one that they’re most proud of and for good reason – the juicy chicken frank was large and has that “snap” to the bite that good sausages have. I was told the halal chicken hotdogs are specially made for them.

They also recommended the Burritos (RM 11) for next time, which is just their chicken sausages wrapped in a commercially available tortilla wrap – no rice or beans, so it isn’t so much a burrito as a wrap. The menu items all revolves around their ½ foot chicken sausage and is either priced at RM 10 or RM 11.

This is their entire menu.

I thought the pricing is a bit on the high side for a food truck that is basically selling hotdogs. There are Ramly burger stands around (though they only operate at night) and the shops near them includes a Korean BBQ set lunch with drinks for RM 9.90 and a RM 1.90 Chinese small bowl mixed rice shop.

There’s also Encorp Strand Mall’s own Sam’s Deli – which hits the exact target market as these guys are aiming for – halal deli items and the latter has a lot more choices. Amaze K Cafe Food Truck does a very good hotdog though – the one I had was loaded with fresh sautéed mushrooms, chicken mince sauce, and mayo and I particularly liked how the juicy mushrooms goes with the snap of the hotdog.

I think they might struggle if they don’t revise their pricing, but if they do, it’ll be a welcome addition to the local food truck scene.

  1. The price is still okay and you could afford it. These days nothing is cheap and they have to pay for the truck unlike those night burger stalls that are stationary. Maybe they should revise to RM9.80 so that it doesn’t sound a big 10.
    Recently I saw a truck too at Uptown and they sold only fresh juices at under RM10. Poor business,

  2. I love it when the sausage has that “snap” to the bite. I wouldn’t mind paying RM10 for it but sounds like they have some stiff competition around the area. I suppose they can always drive to another location if business does not pick up.

  3. Wah, your hotdog got a lot of “liew”! Look at all those cheese, cheese and more cheese! Hmm, food truck, I’ve seen it before, in Food Network channel, haha, didn’t know they have it here too.. Some food trucks are really interesting, they have burritos, fish & chips, wish they have it here too..

  4. RM10 is abit pricey, i can have some sort of ramly burger special with a cheaper price. Operation cost from truck is that expensive? Anyway, the hotdog looks great.
