The unassuming pan-fried snack is made from grated tapioca or cassava, pandan juice and castor sugar. This traditional kueh is called Lempeng Ubi Kayu or ‘Cassava Plate’ in Malaysia and has been eaten since the Second World War. During that period when there was severe food shortage, sweet potatoes and tapioca were the main source of sustenance for many. Various dishes were concocted from these versatile crops, with the tapioca pancake being one of them.
Need we say more? The ultimate pasar malam emblem. Make sure to try the double special campur; a two patty (chicken plus beef) combo wrapped in a thin omelette.
FYI: If you’re wondering why our local Ramly Burger tastes slightly different from across the causeway, it’s because we import beef patties from local suppliers due to AVA regulation.
Highly Raved: Malaysia Ramly Bur - okay we digress. The next best alternative – Ramly Burger at Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar.
Originating from Indonesia, this sweet pancake, also locally known as apam balik, is a fluffy pancake topped with condensed milk, peanut bits, shredded cheese and a generous drizzle of Nutella. What sets this apart from your conventional pancake is the decadent toppings and soft dough that simply melts in your mouth. Mhhmm.
