Love me like the first time…

The first time I had durian pancakes was way back in 2009 when I chanced upon them at a stall at Sungai Wang in KL. It sure was love at first bite and I loved everything else that they were selling at that stall, the Swiss roll and the cream puffs. I can’t remember if I had them again but if I am not wrong, eventually, they had a stall at Mid Valley too and my missus did go and feast on them whenever she had the chance.

I don’t know why they are called pancakes when technically, they are actually durian cream wrapped in crepes…

…something along the same line as our kuih lenggang or what is usually called kuih ketayap

Well, we cannot get them here and we are not allowed to bring them on board when we fly so we have no choice – either we eat them to our hearts’ content while in KL or we do not get to eat them at all.

Needless to say, we were so delighted when my good friend, Lim and his missus dropped by our house to pass us two packs of these durian pancakes…

We did not ask them so we do not know where they got those from. Probably they were homemade – I did see these people in Sarikei advertising them on their Facebook page (and they sure got it right – they call them crepe durian) so perhaps they got them from there.

Yes, we all thought they were really very nice…

The skin/crepe was not quite as nice as the ones we had in KL but the cream, with the fresh durian inside, was absolutely out of this world.

Thank you so much, Lim and Mrs. for remembering us and getting us some to enjoy!
