In Malaysia, the sweet pancake called apam balik is a beloved hawker-stall snack. Some vendors prepare a crispy version, others, a spongy sort; fillings might include the likes of corn, red beans, and coconut or simply sugared crushed peanuts.
In New York you're lucky to find apam balik at all. (Reportedly it does make periodic pre-dawn appearances at Curry Leaves, in Flushing.) Exciting news, then, that this local market stall prepares apam balik on a regular basis; equally good news, I'd say, that the Penang-born owner's kaya is very good. Best news of all: The transition to a brick-and-mortar Kopitiam ("coffee shop") is already under way.
