A great breakfast or teatime option is to dig into a piece of apam balik and not many make these fluffy turnover pancakes better than GAPP. This delicacy is originally round like a pancake, then folded into two, creating a thick center and thin crispy edges, and stuffed generously with roasted peanuts. The peanuts are diced giving them a nice crunch alongside a sprinkle of sugar that gives the filling its sweet, buttery taste.
The apam comes in a variety of tasty fillings for a reasonable $2 — instead of peanut, try it with corn, red bean, peanut butter, chocolate, kaya, cheese or no filling at all! Combinations of fillings are also available for 50 cents per additional filling; a go-to favourite is the peanut and corn combo that infuses a moist texture within the fold.
