Whenever you feel hungry, just wander around Petaling Street and you will find an abundance of snacks to satisfy your rumbling tummy. During one of my walkabouts, I found this stall selling my favourite apam balik(RM0.50 for one piece) made with coconut milk slightly flavoured with pandan leaves. It has fresh coconut shreds mixed within it making each bite a fragrant one especially when eaten warm or piping hot. The apam which is also known as the Malaysian pancake comes in many forms and this particular one is known as the Chinese version. The pancake is cooked in small pans where the outside is crispy and the inside is nice and soft. It's then quickly folded into half when it's taken out from the pan. Sometimes, slices of bananas are added in between the apam.
The stall also serves another version of apam balik which is more popular as it's filled with crushed peanuts (RM0.50 per slice). This is similar to the crispy peanut pancake known as Ban Chean Koay in Chinese except it has a softer texture. It's usually cooked in a large pan. Once it's cooked, it will be divided into slices to be sold.
