I finally found my favorite Apom Guan @ Jalan Burma, Penang right here in KL! Just 10 to 15 minutes drive away from where I stay!
But...no it is not the authentic Apom Guan apom but it tastes 98% similar. I still like Apom Guan's apom best! Looking at the photos from Ngoh Jie Apom's Facebook page, I guess that they either still have a stall at Gurney Drive, Penang or once sold there. The Facebook page is updated in Chinese and I can't read Chinese.
Ngoh Jie Apom currently has two stalls in the Klang Valley: one at Bandar Puteri, Puchong (morning) and one at Old Klang Road (night).
The hubs chanced upon Ngoh Jie's apom stall when he went to the newly opened K88 Food Court to get some food recently. He got so excited and bought 20 pieces of apom to surprise me 😍😂
Our trip to Penang will never ever be complete if I don't get to savour Apom Guan's apom. Our routine upon arrival in Penang is to have lunch at our favorite Sin Kheng Aun restaurant, then go to GMC to see Cass' surgeon, after doctor's appointment and ultrasound scan, we head straight to Burmah Road to get Ah Guan's apom and then check into the hotel. I could easily whack 10 pieces of Ah Guan's apom at one go... in the car while the apom are still hot, after waiting for at least an hour for them. By the time we reach the hotel, all the apoms would have been gobbled down by us. It's my most favorite snack of all time and to think that this old man only makes about 20 or 30 cents profit per piece of apom, I think he's only selling them as a passion or to pass time. It's a laborious job standing at his push cart under the unforgiving sun or rain working non-stop pleasing the perpetual long queue, most of which are his long-time loyal patrons, just like myself. I discovered Ah Guan's apom during my 3 weeks nightmarish stay at Gleneagles Hospital, Penang in May 2009 during Cass' surgeries.
OK, back to Ngoh Jie's Apom! I was SO happy when the hubs came home that evening carrying plastic bags of tapau food. When I opened up one of the bags, I could not believe my eyes! One bite of the apom and I was sent to food heaven! Where on earth did my man find my favorite apom in KL?!
At only RM4 for 5 pieces, Ngoh Jie's apom are a steal. The apoms are best eaten fresh from the pan. They tend to get soggy if you keep them inside the plastic bag for more than an hour. Best is to scoff down all 5 pieces at one go, while they are still hot. 😋
