If this one not Tanglin ah, I don’t deserve to be in this episode anymore.
Hi guys!
Hi!
Hello!
Hi!
Hello!
Yes, I love it!
That’s like my go-to snack.
It’s like one of those traditional desserts.
It’s like this Chinese kind of pancake.
They cook it in this circular pan.
Then you can choose different kind of toppings like,
peanut, coconut, sweet corn.
But, the standard must be peanut.
Ya, oh my god, yes.
Okay, a lot of peanuts and must be evenly spread.
I prefer like the thicker kind then when you bite into it,
it’s like… it’s so satisfying and filling.
Actually, I like mine super thick and super chewy.
Then at the side there is this crispy thing.
Ah, ya!
Then like, it’s not just peanut but they should also have a lot of sugar.
I would prefer like, Jollibean.
We’ve tried Pantree.
Jollibean!
You know Pancake King?
The huge yellow signboard.
It’s like all the marketplace one.
Then like, all the old aunties…
Oh, not very old.
All the aunties really make it on the spot.
So, it’s hot and crispy?
It’s really hot and crispy.
Granny’s pancake,
Tanglin’s pancake,
Pancake King,
Jollibean,
and Pantree.
Oh my god! Yes! I love Pantree!
This looks like the traditional kind.
Ya, it looks like it’s from Pancake King.
First look right, this is a good pancake.
Because, the filling is so generous.
Oh my gosh, it’s evenly spread eh.
Ya, it’s a lot leh.
Ya!
Oh my god, generosity.
This is not the crispy kind.
This is like, spongy doughy kind.
Actually, the pancake taste is not very strong.
But, I taste the sweetness and it’s not from the peanut but from the pancake itself.
It’s really a bit dry.
I would like it to be sweeter actually.
I would say that, it’s a decent min chiang kueh.
After I eat right, I’ll be satisfied.
But I won’t be like, “Wa, this is the world’s best min chiang kueh” that kind.
I feel like this might be Granny’s eh.
But, I know where this is from.
I’m pretty sure that this is from Pancake King.
I go to Pancake King a lot and every time I eat it,
I was like “not sweet enough leh” but I still go back to the same place and buy the same thing.
Wah, it looks very sticky actually.
Ya.
It’s flatter.
The ratio is like a lot thinner than the previous one.
Actually, I quite like this.
Ya!
And, it’s like more gooey.
Do you get like a gooey taste?
Yes!
It’s like raw dough.
The texture is not great and the peanut itself didn’t really stand out.
This peanut is a lot less sweet than the one just now.
I think it’s Granny’s.
Ya, same.
Aiyo, is this carrot cake?
Look at mine!
It’s a bit burnt eh.
Oh my god!
Wow, this is amazing!
This is overflowing!
You can even see the sugar bits eh.
Peanut pancake is like pancake with peanut right?
This is like peanut with pancake.
Because there is so much peanut.
Oh my god!
Wah, raining sia.
Holy shit.
Oh my god.
The others were plain peanut but for this one, you can taste that it’s much sweeter because of the sugar.
It’s a lot sweeter.
And like, it’s even more chewy than the previous one.
Wah, the texture is not good at all.
The sugar and peanut ratio is a bit off.
I feel like the level of sweetness for this one is the same as the first one.
It’s sticky eh.
Oh my god!
I think its Tanglin’s because it’s very old school.
Hello Jollibean!
This is clearly Jollibean.
I know.
Bread..
No, this is Jollibean please.
What is this?
I like.
Skippy sandwich ah?
The filling is just like a paste.
You see.
It’s a peanut butter.
It’s a paste.
And, I like that it’s really not messy.
Best.
Lagi best.
Yes, I like!
The difference.
I feel like I’m eating peanut and more peanuts and a lot more peanuts.
And, the peanut is fragrant enough to match the sweetness of the sugar.
The texture is great.
It’s super crunchy.
Which is good.
But, the peanut taste itself is not nice eh.
No, it’s nice!
It tastes like fake peanuts that have been left out for too long.
Like stale already.
And it’s so heavy.
Like, where got pancake so heavy one?
This one is heavy la, aiyo.
Ya, it’s damn heavy.
Good la.
No, not nice. Then like, ugh.
Hard.
It might get a bit jelak.
I’m starting to get a bit sick of it already.
Ya, same.
But, this is confirm Jollibean.
It’s definitely Jollibean.
It looks so ugly but it’s Pantree.
Look! Look at the peanut, look at the peanut.
It’s coarser.
Ya, it’s super coarse and brown.
And, more brown.
Dark brown.
One thing I don’t like about Pantree is that it’s not generous.
Eh?
I didn’t taste the peanut at all.
Why like that ah?
Why like that ah?
You can hardly taste the peanut.
Ya, its just pancake.
Ya.
But, I like the pancake itself.
But, it’s nice.
It’s a bit more buttery.
I feel like I can finish this instead of the Jollibean one.
Oh is it?
Because, it is a bit salty so it cuts the sweetness from being too overly powering.
It tastes like the healthier version of all the rest.
If you want to eat min chiang kueh then just eat with a lot of peanut and a lot of sugar lah.
Why you go for the healthier one?
This is not something that I’d go for if I want peanut as my topping.
No leh, no leh.
Not very appetising.
Sian.
PD: And, Pantree.
Oh my god!
Yes! I love Pantree!
C: Pancake King.
X: Tanglin.
Oh.
The first guess wrong already.
Wait, did they get it correct?
Pancake King.
Holy shit.
Oh my god!
But, I know where this is from.
I eat too many times already, I know already.
I’m pretty sure this is from Pancake King.
I trust her.
I trusted you!
I trusted myself!
C: Pancake King.
X: Tanglin.
Yes!
No!
Pancake King.
Tanglin!
So I just gave Tanglin, Tanglin, Tanglin.
Tanglin.
Tanglin!
Tanglin!
Tanglin.
Wow!
Jollibean.
Jollibean.
Pantree.
Pantree.
Tanglin.
It’s freaking generous in sugar and peanut.
But when you eat the pancake right, you’ll think that it’s normal.
Then afterwards, the egg taste kicks in.
It’s like woah.
It’s so satisfying to eat.
I think Granny’s is not bad eh.
Ya, it doesn’t stick onto your teeth.
It’s chewy but still not sticky.
I always thought that if it’s not the sticky kind of peanut filling,
then I wouldn’t like it as much.
But after today, I tried the Jollibean one and it’s really quite jelak.
So that one (Granny’s), I feel like I can finish it and I still feel very satisfied.
