Recently, work took my colleagues and I to the famous-to-locals-only Tanglin Halt Market for lunch.
A man jian kueh fan, I have heard much about the famed Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake and was thrilled to lay my hands on one (well, one and a half since the colleagues took note of my gluttonous look).
It is arguably the one of the best around - a warm man jian kueh from any store usually tips the scale. However, this was the first time I paid more attention to the kueh, as opposed to the filling, which was thickish but fragrant.
The roasted peanut grains posed a messy dilemma (How to best eat it without looking like a buffoon... Do I eat with my hands or pick it up with my chopsticks?); it is clear that you should stay around from fans or risk raking up a peanut sandstorm.
