Oh no, I just realised today's post is also about something sweet. Sorry but I didn't realise this when I uploaded the pictures late last night. Makes it three in a row if you count last week's blog posts.
I was recently introduced to this particular stall located within the busy food court. Must admit, Taman Megah is my least favourite place ever since I lost my personal items in a snatch theft there. Doesn't help when I hear horror stories from my mother about how the business owners claim, there must be at least two snatch theft incidents a day - morning and afternoon. Hence be super careful when walking around this area. We visited this place late at night hence I was looking over my shoulder at every instance.
Although the situation around the area is less than ideal, the food is very good here. The apom served here has two varieties - the crispy type and the softer version. Made with a batter which has coconut milk, the crispy version is cooked in tiny woks. Once ready, it is taken out from the hot woks and folded in the middle. Delicious when eaten hot as it has a crisp texture and coconut milk aroma.
The other softer version is made in bite size portions using a special pan. This version is more like a soft coconut milk pancake whereby one side is browned and the other still white. Usually fillings are added in - bananas, grated coconut and canned corn. Again the aroma of coconut milk is strong in these mini pancakes but the texture is soft with a crispy edge. Eat it piping hot to get the best out of it.
Usually these sweet items are sold in night markets or roadside stalls during the day time. One famous stall which sells the soft version is located on Jalan Hang Lekir on Petaling Street. That particular stall also sells the apam balik filled with crushed peanuts. Give this place a try especially when you start having midnight cravings as they're open during night time.
