Popiah

Ahhhh Popiah, the local oriental burrito.
A delicacy for all palates, this is one well loved dish by both locals and foreign friends visiting. what’s great about Popiah is that it provide different texture and flavours in a single bite, from the crunch from the peanuts and the fried pork skin (or other fired fritters) to the fresh and crispy vegetables matches really well with the sweet flour sauce and spicy sambal.
Hand-made fresh Popiah skins definitely taste much better, they can be purchased from Hup Kiat, Kway Guan Huat or Fortune Food, as it require a skill to make them thin yet strong enough to hold the ingredient we decided to leave it to the experts, until we figure out the fool proof way to make them.
For the type who love bonding together for gatherings, a Popiah party is a great choice as you can have fun making them and everyone can customize they own. There’s no real hard rule here, add or change the toppings to the radish as you like, and make something that defines YOU.
That’s it from us, so go start your Popiah party now!
