Apom – the breakfast of champions! January 18, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Culture, Food, Malaysia, People, Places.
If you are an ordinary Malaysian who’s constantly on the move and in a hurry, you will bound to come across the ubiquitous apom. Walk into any Indian restaurant in the morning and you will find a worker hard at work flipping the flat, round dough on a mini kuali.
Two is usually enough for a normal office worker but if you are feeling rather ravenous, throw in a roti canai kosong as well. that should do it for the morning, until lunch appears three hours later.
Those of us who have been in and out of various kinds of restaurants and coffeeshops all our lives swear by our apoms on the table that this simple meal has helped keep hunger at bay for many a year. Only in Malaysia, can a person fish RM2 out of his pocket and have a hearty breakfast without breaking out into tears!
