The toddy shop is a little nondescript place at one end of Jalan Berhala.
I have passed here a number of times on my walk about, but as the place only opens at 10.30 a.m. I didn't notice it before. The building looks similar to the one in Chow Kit that was around many years ago.
This is a Government Toddy Shop i.e. not just licensed, but owned and operated by the Customs' Department, a relic of our colonial past.
By the way operating hours are between 10.30 a.m. and 5.00 p.m., so don't think of trying this place for some late night boozing session.
The furniture consists only of long wooden benches and table.
I suppose if regular chairs were provided, it would be easier to throw them at each other. (I know I'm being judgmental here, but hey, I'm no saint.)
Serving utensils are only plastic mugs.
I recall that in those days in Chow Kit, there used to be some enterprising people who used to rent out enamel mugs of various sizes. The owners' sign and the rental price (5c, 10c etc) used to be painted prominently on the mugs. Business was brisk during the evenings and every morning they had to pick up the mugs belonging to them
There is a little temple attached to this toddy shop.
The sign says that it is the Sree Maha Kaliamman Kovil, Kuala Lumpur.
The temple is dedicated to the Goddess Kali.
