Not many people talked about Tanglin Halt Food Centre, perhaps it is one of the smallest Food centres around and mainly serving the small Tanglin Halt estate. However, when come to good “Mee Chang Kueh” the Chinese traditional pancake, Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake is not a stranger to many in this seemingly not popular food centre.
Granny’s pancake is one of the best mee chang kueh in Singapore with their fluffy, less moist skin and generous quality fillings. Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake is more towards the traditional moist and chewy skin and only come with peanut filling. We kind of like the chewy texture and yet not too sticky that glued to the teeth when eat. Filling was excellent with the finely grated peanut as well as perfect sweetness from the sugar added. The filling is so generous that the skin can’t hold it and overflow everywhere.
The stall do offer round shape pancake that come with different fillings as well eg. Sweet Red bean paste, yam paste, peanut and the black sesame, all ingredients and fillings are home-made. Do try the black sesame pancake, according to the uncle, he is the only one in Singapore selling black sesame filling pancake and is very proud of his creation. Truth enough, the aroma from the black sesame was distinctive and flavourful, again, the uncle never stingy when come to filling, the round pancake was so packed with the filling that it was clearly visible from the skin!
While we love the pancake here, it is sad to hear from the uncle that there is no successor to his Mee Chang Kueh business, the children obviously has no interest to inherit the recipe. So, if you still care about enjoying a nice piece of Mee Chang Kueh, do get hold one now at Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake.
