The Best Apong at Jalan Burma, Penang

Apong is a type of pancake that you can get in Malaysia. Strangely I am not an Apong fan but now I desire and crave for them so much that I search for them in the country, wherever I go.

Penang island….. is a place for Apong?… truely it is… The Apong Heaven,….. so fluffy, so creamy, so light, so soft and yet with the taste and a hint of sweetcorn and ripe juicy banana.

You can find these two Apong stalls just at the roadside of Jalan Burma, Penang and it is only RM0.30 (US0.10) a piece……. such a bargain for such lovely dessert. This Apong can be taken while they are warm and cold but I really prefer when there are warm….. so soft and so creamy, lovely as it melts in your mouth. I would say they are goes well with a cuppa of tea or coffee.

At each batches, nine Apongs can be generated from the moulded pan and takes about 5-6 minutes to ready. Therefore if you want to taste this heavenly delicious Apongs, you may need to place order them in advance or even mobile them, if not you may need to wait half an hour for yours. I was shocked when most customers order at least twenty pieces at a time…….lol…. we ordered thirty pieces!…lol


If you are in Penang Island , do not miss this lovely pancakes…. my truely heaven!

    I love apom especially those made by Malays cos I find them generally more generous with the peanuts. Yumzz!

    My fave is with the corn. I always try to look for the uncle that sells this whenever I’m in Penang.
