Best "Apam Balik" in Mamarazzi's Opinion

Recently, some friends were talking about "Apam Balik". 

If you  are wondering what is Apam Balik, it's actually a kind of traditional cake in Malaysia which is    usually taken during teatime or in the evening in over here. Similar to Pancake, it usually have thick skin with a layer of peanut butter, sugar sprinkled at the core and the corn on it. It's then folded in two and best eaten when it's still warm

Broadly speaking there are two types of Apam Balik, namely: -
 
Tradisional Apam Balik - pan sized and thick.
Crispy Apam Balik - it is crispy and have a thin skin like like crackers.


The best Apam Balik in Mamarazzi's opinion are those that have shredded coconuts as filings.

So far, she found two stalls that sells  Apam Balik with shredded coconut filings. One is located at Seri Kembangan Village while the other is at SS2  Pasar Malam(night Market) on Mondays.

The SS2 Apam Balik stall is located next to the hawker centre opposite AmBank. If not mistaken they only have Apam Balik with shredded coconut filing every forth night. Mamarazzi remembered asking the lady boss that long time ago but not sure whether this has changed or not.



Mamarazzi love the thin crispy Apom Balik most whereas Papa likes the thick one. Unfortunately the thick ones does not have shredded coconut fillings.


Not cheap. RM1 a piece but worth every sens.

 MMm....yummy coconut...

For me, I would eat both type of Apom Balik.

According to Papa, Indonesian Apom Balik is more innovative than ours. They have Chocolate apom balik, strawberry apom balik and any sort of apom balik that you can think of.

    1. Nowadays, apom balik vendors so stingy. Sometimes see only 1 pcs of the sweet corn only in my apom balik. Ish... :(

      Ya lor very seldom can find those with coconuts ones anymore. probably coconut tak tahan. very easy to be smelly

    1. Thick or thin, these both have lots of calories. Last time I didn't know and I used to buy it when I went pasar malam. That time I still studied in KL. Then, my male leng chai course mate commented, " Yan, I thought you are on diet, do you know these apom balik is very high in calories."
      I tell you, i really mind people saying like that. So, I dare not eat Apom balik until today. When I crave for it, I will just eat one or two bites, then pass the remaining to my husband.
