It has been a long while since I lasted visited one of my favourite Popiah stall, Jit It Thai San Popiah (日益太山薄饼) at Clementi. It is good to know that the old auntie is still in the pink of health, running the stall and busy rolling her popiah to serve the long snaking queue.
What I like about the Popiah ($1.50/pc) here is the shiok garlicky taste and its kick ass chilli, that is wrapped in a thin popiah skin. I am glad that the standard is there. To be frank, the stall auntie is already quite old. I really wonder how long can she continue doing this day in day out.
The delectable popiah here is stuffed with turnips, beansprouts, hard boiled eggs and peanuts. While the turnips may lack the depth and richness, it is made up by the garlick and chilli shiokness with the fragrant egg and peanuts rounding off the flavours.
Do let me remind you again to keep your order simple. The auntie can be quite grouchy at times if you are not clear with your order. We can't blame her as age has also caught up with her. So do pardon her temper.
