YAM PUFFS @ SS3 Pasar Malam

Getting lost in an unfamiliar housing area during a heavy thunderstorm and congested traffic is not funny at all, especially when everyone in the car (WMW and Jason) were looking forward to a pre-dinner snack! We were supposed to be meeting Andrine at the SS3 pasar malam (night market) to try the yam puffs that WMW was raving about. I stopped the car at the roadside with my hazard light on while waiting for Andrine to rescue us. Since it was still pouring heavily, we decided to head straight to our dinner place. Miraculously, the rain stopped and we immediately made a detour back to our destination! Yes, we are very determined people.

This is my first visit to SS3 pasar malam which is operating every Tuesday evening. I am not sure the exact location of this Yam Puffs stall, so here is a photo of the owner of the stall for you to hunt him down. Oh, there is a Lok-Lok van right next to this stall.

From what I gathered from WMW's post, the yam puffs normally sold out by 6 p.m. We were there at 6.30 p.m. and we managed to grab some to try. I guess we should be thankful for the thunderstorm.

The tasty pork fillings were still lukewarm when I bit into it. I enjoyed every bite of the crispy bits on the puff, the mushy soft yam and the moist delicious pork fillings. It was lovely!! Only RM1.40 per piece!

Also available or shall I say, what's left for us to try...a few pieces of Radish Cake and Pumpkin Cake. I gave each a try. At only 80 sen per piece, it was way better than I expected.

With my tight schedule (there are not many days left before I return to Melbourne), I do wish I could make a return trip to try out other interesting snacks such as Putu Buluh and Apam Manis, so WMW, shall we??

Yeah, love the soft and powder-y exterior. Bet it would taste much better if it was piping hot!

I LOVE yam puffs. Pity we missed each other this round. Hope to see more food posts especially those from your restaurant!

Yam puffs are my favourite! I always have to have them when we go for dim sum - or yum cha as you Ozzies call it. I've been trying a bit more to be a food blogger but I always forget to whip my camera out - I just dive straight into eating!
