Ahwa & Little Lim Penang Pancake @ PJ 222


The place was still bustling by the time we arrived at nearly midnight.


Alas, they had run out of Hokkien Mee, so we settled for Hokkien Beehoon instead. Still delicious, full of all that "wok hei" jazz.


We also checked out a stall here selling crispy folded pancakes.


Two varieties: Ham, meat floss & mayo and egg, peanuts & cheese. The pancakes were nice and thin, while the stuffing was surprisingly well-prepared, especially the warm, soft egg. The combinations sound a bit strange, but they tasted goooooood.


The only misfire was the oyster omelette. Bland and utterly forgettable.

  5. Sighs. Nothing like freshly made thin pancakes. Occasionally I like the thick ones too, but the thinner pancakes are my fave by far! :)
