Ah Lock & Co., Tanjong Pagar Centre

Ah Lock & Co., matcha pancake red bean

This stall (#B2-22/23/24 Tanjong Pagar Centre, 7 Wallich Street, tel : +65 8826 0244) which is located just next to Chalong serves what appears to be Hakka style rice bowls/noodles and ban chang kueh. Or min chiang kueh. Whichever you were schooled to call these pancakes. 

I might come back to try their rice bowls someday. Was looking for something less substantial so I got their matcha pancake with anko. Not bad. Could taste both the green tea and red bean flavours. The pancakes were a little dense and the fillings could do with a bit more generosity. 

I'm wont to compare these things to Granny's Pancake at Whampoa because those are superb. Superb meaning thick, light, wobbly and have generous fillings.

Ah Lock & Co., butter kopi

There's butter kopi on the menu. This one tasted odd. There was a thickness which I could detect but that thickness with very little coffee flavour. Not as nice as Heap Seng Leong.
