“Tai Kau Meen” From Barb

Posted by mamabok | Around The World,Chinese,Food From Home,Meet Up With | Monday 18 May 2009 4:53 pm




Barb and I go a long way.  We met as blogging mummies doing online work with several companies. – Barb has several blogs and one of them is www.chumseyashley.info, this blog talks about her bringing up her only daughter – Ashley.  Barb is generous and genuine.. and never judge me .. but is always supportive.  She sends me plenty of food from home too.. and she has a very lovely daughter.. who does some modeling work for a local magazine/mall. So now.. Barb is actually a “xing ma”.  If you can’t get ahold of me or Lina.. the next person you should try is Barb.  Or better yet, you can hop over her blog .. and say hi.

Anyhow.. this is Barb’s contribution .. for sharing food around the world with everyone else.  Thanks Barb… you are a sport.  And I love this kueh too.. i prefer peanuts in them.. and yes.. you have to eat them piping hot.   I think they are like $1.20 a piece .. when i left home for Canada.. how much is it now..??

Hey Jan,

I’m participating in the fun Share Your Food post.  Attached is a photo of “Tai Kau Meen” also known as Chinese pancake or Apom Balik in Bahasa Malaysia :) (Sorry the photo is not very clear)  I bought it from the pasar malam last thursday.  It’s good to eat when it’s piping hot.  The tai kau meen is filled with peanuts, sugar, margarine and corns.  Some people would put kaya spread on them instead of margarine. A bit too sweet for me though.

    I have never tried this b4, but it looks good. I love pancakes/crepes with filling in it. I love the crepes with durian. It is so yummy. I miss eating that.

    Hey Mb n Barb, is this ‘man sou ko’ (canto)/ mang jiang kueh (hokkien)? Looks like it eh? Whenever we walked passed such stalls, my hubby will be very naughty, he’ll tell son to quickly walk pass this stall coz he said i cannot eat this or else after eating, i’ll be more ‘mang chang’ wor…hehehe

    As much as I’m missing this ‘kueh’ but very much pinning for the ‘crab’ porridge lol. Wish I am in Canada sometimes instead of UK but then, grass always seem to be greener on the other side. Thanks for the memories. Ate loads of the ‘kueh’ when I was growing up. My next trip back home to M’sia is in 2010. Long wait …

    Gosh, this is my absolute favourite! Shit, now I’m craving this….where can I find this on a Wednesday nite??? Where is there a pasar malam on a Wednesday nite???

    Hahah Lina. What I meant by “mean” was by the way he looked. Like “Don’t do that, or I will do something to you”. I do that look sometimes when I’m annoyed. :)
    And yeah, that London restaurant is known for their bad service (but when I go, it’s not too bad), but the food is really good. They serve them on smaller plates though.:( The best place to go is New World “Sun Sai Guy”(really expensive!), Young Cheung “Yeung Sing”, Tai Ka Lok.. There are some new ones I’ve never been to but look reasonable.

    I was born in Ipoh and immigrated to the US 18 years ago. I miss Malaysian food a lot especially Tai Kau Meen a lot.
