How do you like your Apom?

The Chowrasta market area used to be the most crowded and merry market on the island; and home to hawkers and pedlars eager to make ends meet on a daily or weekly basis.

Previously I blogged about the Ban Cheng Kueh (aka Chinese pancake) stall which was reputed to be one of the most famous here.
Now, facing the stall is another stall which sells Apom; manned by an Indian couple.

At RM0.40 per piece, you can get a whole bagful of Apom at only RM2! (5 pcs)

It's not as sickeningly sweet as some of the Apom I've tasted; in fact, it seems to be low in sugar and light in flour batter.

Unfortunately though, they put it in the bag when it's hot from the pan!!
So by the time I tried a bite, it was already soggy!

Now, that's a bit disappointing, eh?
I don't really like too crispy; neither do I like soggy too...( I am hard to please, I know)

However, the tip is, always make sure that they leave it to cool before packing it for you (the folks selling it will make it a point to tell you that too; and will expect you to wait a few minutes for that - that's the pro)

Now, how do you like your Apom?
