In the food courts or round markets in Singapore, it’s nice to chance upon a vegetarian stall offering broth and vegetable combinations. During one of my random outings in Tampines round market, I came across this small food stall serving pancakes. Upon inquiry, I got to know that it has been around for decades. The name of the stall was Granny’s Pancake and somehow, I liked the place at once. Part of the reason could be that there was a smiling grandma serving these hot pancakes over the counter. The stall was quite crowded in the morning and since it was labelled as a vegetarian plus eggless pancake stall, I was tempted to try it.
When my turn came to place the order, I asked the smiling granny as to what I should try at her shop since I was visiting the stall for the first time. Her suggestion was that I try the ‘Coconut Pancake’. The coconut filling was bright orange and looked striking and delicious. When I had my first bite, what struck me was the coconut was nicely moist and sweet. The dough was soft and spongy on the exterior and the filling was fresh in the interior. This gave the pancake a perfect balance. Totally worth a try.
Next I decided to go for the ‘Red bean Pancake’ which was quite interesting. They are quite generous in their filling and that makes every bite of the pancake delicious. The red bean paste was well applied all over and was not very sweet. Two pieces of the pancake when eaten at the same time are quite filling.
I plan to try their peanut butter flavour the next time. I think they close by 2 pm on weekdays and it is better to go in the mornings to be sure to get these pieces since they literally sell like hot pancakes. I totally enjoyed my pancake experience at this place and as far as my memory goes I did not pay more than $4 for my purchase of 4 pieces. They have other outlets across Singapore as well.
