Traditional peanut pancake, also known as min jian kueh, is crispy on the outside and awesomely chewy inside. Doused with roasted, finely ground peanuts, sugar is added to give the pancake a perfect mixture of sweet and savoury.
A piece of Peanut Pancake
Mr and Mrs Teng prepared the batter at every morning at 4.30am. Mr Teng who is in his 60s has been serving Tanglin Halt residents with tasty pancakes, fresh from the oven, for the past 40 years. A former itinerant hawker, Mrs Teng's father taught them the traditional methods of making these pancakes when Mrs Teng married her partner many years ago. A keen perfectionist, Mr Teng will source out for fresh ingredients and prepare them himself on his "off" days on Mondays and Fridays.
Mr and Mrs Teng-the loving couple
Endless queues were forming when MyQueenstown Team visited this popular stall on a weekend. Priced at 60 cents for a peanut pancake and 90 cents for a yam pancake, Mr Teng has been trying out new flavours to attract the younger crowd.
