Belinda’s Pancake – Good & Cheap Breakfast in Ang Mo Kio!
Belinda, the proud owner of Belinda’s Pancakes devotes herself to the making of traditional min jiang kueh, crispy pancakes and puttu mayam. Her delicious and affordable breakfast treats are always sold out by noon, or earlier.
During business hours, the amiable stall owner welcomes each customer merrily. This might be the reason why her customers keep coming back. Wouldn’t it be nice to be greeted with a wide and sweet smile every morning? “I make my own pancakes, using a long-time recipe that was passed down from my father,” Belinda shared humbly. It is heartwarming to see that Belinda is carrying on her father’s legacy.
To create min jiang kueh, batter is first poured into a circular metallic pan that sits on a gas stove. When the edges of the pancake are nicely browned and the insides still semi-molten, copious amounts of shredded coconut or crushed peanuts are generously poured across the pancake. The pancake is then folded, and removed from the pan.
The soft and fluffy pancakes warmed my soul. Belinda’s pancakes reminded me of my childhood. The pancake was dense and moist, and especially delicious when it was served piping hot. I thought that it could be likened to a thick mochi but without the stickiness. If you are taking it away, I recommend re-heating it before you savour it. The min jiang kueh comes in three flavours — peanut, coconut and red bean (all 90cents/pc).
My favourite of the lot was definitely the Coconut Pancake. The excellent filling-to-pancake ratio is what makes Belinda’s pancakes stand out from other min jiang kueh. Shredded coconut was spilling out with every bite, and we definitely are not complaining about how generous Belinda is with the filling.
You can’t miss the classic Peanut Pancake. Who doesn’t love spongy pancake with sugar and crunchy peanut? At just 90 cents, this delightful pancake is a steal.
Apart from min jiang kueh, homemade Puttu Mayam ($1.60/2pcs) is available as well. The making of puttu mayam is a tedious process, so I was rather surprised to learn that Belinda’s sister actually makes them by hand. Each portion contains a generous amount of steamed vermicelli-like noodles, granulated gula merah and grated coconut flesh. When eaten alone, the string hopper was slightly salty. When eaten all together, there’s an explosion of sweetness. If you feel like having something a little sweeter for breakfast, go for this.
Belinda’s Pancake is a true gem. We hope that Belinda continues to provide yummy pancakes with a big smile, and keep her father’s legacy alive.
