I had been patronising this stall for like 20 years. When I was in labour with my second son who is now 14 years old, Apong Guan’s apom was sold for only RM1 for seven pieces. It was the only thing I got to eat during that long labour. So, how can I not feature this favourite stall of mine?
Seen in the above photo is the ever friendly, ever talkative Ah Guan who is showing my #3 son a photo of him in a Singapore magazine. He had been featured in Flavours too. Ah Guan told me that just today, another magazine came to photographed him and he had appeared in U Channel in Singapore before. I told him this time, he is going on the internet.
There are actually two stalls selling the same pancake with banana and corn, placed side by side on the busy Burmah Road. However, Ah Guan is THE ONE because his pancake is more moist, lemak (taste of coconut milk) and Ah Guan is the friendliest and cheerful guy, ever.
I have no idea what goes into the pancake batter except that it probably has eggs, flour, coconut milk, sugar and some rising agent.
All the pancakes are freshly made and sometimes, several cars will be waiting for their pancakes, causing minor traffic jam on busy Burmah Road.
Apong Guan is just a few metres BEFOREÃ‚Â the Him Heang Biscuit shop, but on the left side. Burmah Road is a one way street. Apong Guan is at the traffic light near the Chinese Union Primary school and his stall is the second one. The other uncle’s apong is good too, much better than most places but there is only one Apong Guan.
