Min jiang kueh stalls around Singapore
Google “min jiang kueh in Singapore”, and you will find many netizens branding the same few stalls as “the best pancake stall”. I have my favourite stall, which I think serves the number one min jiang kueh in Singapore, but being a sucker for all things peanut, it’s hardly possible for me to stay loyal to that one stall.
Whenever I catch a whiff of the fragrant peanut pancake, I’ll be on my way to getting one. If you are like me, here are some places where you can satisfy that craving for min jiang kueh!

1. Granny’s Pancake
Granny’s Pancake is one of the many must-visit stalls when you are at Ghim Moh Market & Food Centre. In the simple stall, there are only four varieties to choose from – Peanut ($1), Coconut ($1.10), Red Bean ($1), and Peanut + Peanut Butter ($1.20). With the unceasing flow of customers, fresh batches of pancakes are whipped out frequently so you can expect to get them steaming hot most times!
They’ve also got other outlets across Singapore, including one in Hong Lim Food Centre.

2. Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake

This is one of my personal favourites. Found in Tanglin Halt Market, Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake is one of the most old-school pancake stalls around that are still selling their Peanut Pancake at $0.90 per piece. Served in rectangular pieces, their thick and chewy min jiang kueh comes filled with crushed peanuts and sugar. Be prepared to get your hands dirty with the fillings spilling out with every bite! Head down to the stall early as they close at 11:30am and are known to sell everything way before that.
Address: 48A Tanglin Halt Road, Stall 16, Tanglin Halt Market, Singapore 148813
Opening hours: Sat-Sun, Tue, Thurs 3:30am to 11:30am

3. The Pantree
For those who prefer crispy pancakes over thick and chewy ones, hit up The Pantree. While their classic Peanut Pancake ($2.50) is their best-seller, a wide variety of other fillings can also be found at this cafe. If you’re looking for something sweet to munch on, try their pancake with Nutella ($3) or Cream Corn ($2.50). Otherwise, savoury options such as Luncheon Meat & Cheese ($3.50) or Chicken Floss & Egg ($4.50) will make satisfying snacks!

4. Munchi Pancakes
If you were at Glowbeat Festival and got attracted to Munchi Delights’ colourful min jiang kueh, you’d be glad to know that you can still get your hands on the pancakes at three locations: Yishun Park Hawker Centre, Lau Pa Sat, and Fernvale Hawker Centre. Available in three different flavours, Original, matcha, and charcoal, their pancakes come with traditional fillings such as Peanut ($1.50), Red Bean ($1.50), and Coconut ($1.50). Among the younger crowd, they are also popular for their many other unique fillings including Oreo Cream Cheese ($1.80) and Banana Chocolate ($1.80)!

6. Ah Long Pancake

For those craving something savoury, Ah Long Pancake is where you can find some of the most interesting min jiang kueh flavours. I was taken aback by their savoury options such as Sambal Chilli + Carrot + Egg ($2.20) and Caipu + Carrot + Egg ($2.20). The last time I was there, I went for the less adventurous Corn + Peanut + Egg ($2.20) and was wowed by both the portion as well as the delicious combination of the chewy pancake and its crispy exterior!

7. Belinda’s Traditional Pancake

Belinda’s Traditional Pancake serves their min jiang kueh differently from most stalls. Here, they are known for their thin and crispy pancakes that come in a cone shape, similar to a Japanese crepe. These cone-shaped pancakes are priced at $1.30 each, with fillings such as peanut, red bean, coconut, and chocolate lining the inside of the cone. You can also get fresh putu mayam for $1.80 here!
Address: 341 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, #01-27, Teck Ghee Court Market & Food Centre, Singapore 560341

8. Eva’s Pancake

An under-the-radar gem in the Toa Payoh heartlands is Eva’s Pancake, a humble stall run by a young hawker. Go for classic fillings such as peanut, coconut, or red bean, all of which are priced at $1.10 per slice. You’ll also find drool-worthy flavours such as Peanut + Peanut Butter ($1.30), loaded with crushed peanuts and a hefty drizzle of peanut butter.
Address: Blk 95 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, #01-74, Singapore 310095

9. Bu Bu Gao Sheng

Another hidden gem of a find is Bu Bu Gao Sheng, an underrated hawker stall along Neil Road selling soft MJK with trendy fillings such as taro and black sesame. Their classic Crunchy Peanut Butter ($1.40), which stars a light pancake sandwiching the nutty spread, is another favourite. There’s also Matcha ($1.60) min jiang kueh if you’re a fan of tea-based flavours!
Address: 120 Neil Road, Singapore 088855

10. Pancake King

This stall’s bright yellow signboard, with the words “Pancake King” in bold and capitalised letters, will be hard to miss. When you take a closer look at their iconic signboard, you will also see the words “Money Back Guarantee”—you get your money back if you are not satisfied with their Pancake ($1.20). That is how confident they are of their min jiang kueh. Besides pancakes that are available in three flavours, namely peanut, red bean, and coconut, another favourite of mine from Pancake King is their Egg Tart ($1.50).
Address: 49A Serangoon Garden Way, Stall 25, Serangoon Garden Food Market, Singapore 555945

BONUS: Irna’s Taste Food & Cakes

I like to think of martabak manis as a more decadent and shiok-er version of min jiang kueh. Check out Irna’s Taste Food & Cakes, which specialises in martabak manis. They’ve got a unique Original Mix Pizza ($18), which features a thick pancake that’s glazed with butter, drenched in sweetened condensed milk, and sprinkled with a medley of toppings: shredded cheese, chocolate sprinkles, and peanut. Compared to min jiang kueh, the pancakes here are sweeter because of the condensed milk that they drizzle on top of it.
Address: 55 Changi Road, #01-21, MILLAGE, Singapore 419709
Opening hours: Tue-Sat 10am to 6pm, Sun 12pm to 6pm
