[SG] Chinatown Popiah

Saturday, November 26, 2011

Popiah is pretty much your spring roll, with a soft and thin crepe like 'skin' to wrap around the fillings, which typically consists of bean sprouts, grated peanuts and carrots, lettuce, chinese sausage, sliced tofu, fried shallots, shredded omelette and the all important turnip with a dash of shrimp paste/hoi sin sauce spread across the 'skin'.

Eaten mainly as a snack as an accompaniment to other main dishes, the popiah served was definitely value for money at $1/roll, min order 2 rolls. It really falls under the category of 'share-share' food.

(+) fresh ingredients and generous serving.
(+) relatively crisp skin which gives an added crunch with each bite due to the finely roasted grated peanuts.
(+) popiah is well kneaded and packed so the fillings do not drop all over the table when eating.
(+) the fillings do not damp the 'skin', leaving one with messy hands.
(+) very affordable, considering the stall's central location.

(-) min order of 2pcs.

Verdict: 7.5/10
