This had a crisp skirt around, with a soft & chewy middle - texture is similar to a minjiangkueh. The coconut shreds (it didn’t feel super fresh, but it wasn’t stale or dry either) and appam itself are plain on its own, so a light sprinkling of the fine sugar helped to elevate the taste. First time trying appam and I wouldn’t mind having it again, but I don’t think appams are my kinda thing though.

Thosai was crisp at the edges, kinda like a tissue prata (with butter, without the sugar). My bf and I both felt that there was too much butter at some parts tho, felt greasy at those parts. Maybe we should get the masala egg next time instead! The centre part was stuffed with soft and yummy potatoes. Yogurt (?) sauce (middle) was tangy, the dhal (left) complemented the thosai well. The sauce on the right was pretty spicy (even the bf with a good spice tolerance agreed), so I didn’t have much of it.

I haven’t tried many thosais before, but I think that this was pretty good and I would travel to Tampines for this :) The queues are quite consistently long, which is a testament to how popular it is!

You would be surprised to see this Indian food stall actually managed by Malay family, always attracting a long queue in the morning for their thosai, appam and puttu mayam.

They have lots of fillings choice for their thosai, including the masala egg for $4. Crispy skin wrapping the soft fillings inside with lots of masala potato and egg. It also pair well with the curry and sauce.

Interestingly, this is a Malay stall, not Indian. I actually like how it doesn't look perfect. Quite good, but since appam can never blow your mind, I guess it's difficult to say.

Made from rice flour and served with orange sugar, this fresh, buttery, fermented rice pancake with crispy edges and thick, spongy centre really wowed me.

This is such a treat!

Finally! The stall was closed for the whole of Ramadan/ Hari Raya period.

There is usually a short queue on weekends, but it moves fast.

One reason I like this stall is because they make your order fresh. I really don’t like being served thosai that has been lying around for a while/ cold.

While this may not be like MTR type of (crispy) dosa, I still like this type of thosai with orange sugar- fresh, humble, cheap & nice!
