Mother of all pancakes. Bang Chang Kueh, is commonly found in Malaysia,Singapore and Indonesia.The sweet pancake is usually filled with roasted peanuts, cream corn and sugar. Although there are many variations of this with brown sugar, banana, condense milk, and cheese. My all time fave is the stock standard sweet corn, crushed peanuts, and sugar sprinkles. The morish pancake is chewy in texture with crispy sides, best eaten hot off the pan.
Char Koay Teow, is literally translated as “stir-fried ricecake strips”. Variation of the dish is typically prepared at hawker stalls around South East Asia. Of all the notable places to get Char Koay Teow from, the most popular by far is Penang Koay Toew. One must when visiting Penang is to drop by the mecca of all fried rice cake outlets; the infamous Lorong Selamat Koay Teow. I can’t recall the last time seeing anyone using charcoal as a cooking medium aside from the barbie. There’s nothing quite like this back home in NZ, the closet you can get is probably from Selera in Newmarket, Auckland.
