Simple BanChangKueh Breakfast

Was around Taman Sri Rampai morning market looking for breakfast. This market had all quite a variety of food stalls manned by Chinese, Indians and Malays. Quite a 'Muhibbah' (a Malaysian term for inter-racial harmony, correct translation?) scene.

After 2 rounds walking up & down the road (my exercise for the day), settled on this:- BanChangKueh aka MangChangKuay aka TaiKaoMin aka Apom Balik aka I-am-sure-more-names-are-out-there.

A middle aged couple was busy dishing out this gem at a stall somewhere in the middle of the market. It was the crowd that attracted me to it. What a pleasant discovery! The 'cake' was filled with crushed peanuts, sweetened corn, a sprinkle of sugar and the star ingredient (the white stuff in pic):- COCONUT 'meat' shavings!

Definitely not found at most places. Delicious, delicious, delicious. Even more so when savoured with a hot cuppa kopi-o (sugared black local coffee). A happy tummy.

In case you were wondering about the greenish effect on the lower corners of both pictures, that's just the reflection of the green umbrella I was sitting under in a coffeeshop.

Penang seems to be a popular destnation last weekend. Looks good the Ban Chean Kuih. They seem to have lots of different varieties up north.

boo_licious, this Sri Rampai is in KL, near Wangsa Maju. It sounds like Taman Sri Rambai in Bkt Mertajam, Penang, doesn't it? :> I love those which an egg is added just before it's taken out from the hot pan too - a meal on its own.
