Apom Telur Tradisional: 40-Year-Old Claypot Apom Using Charcoal In Penang

Growing up in Penang, we have access to plenty of lip-smacking street food. From the kind that we enjoy as a proper meal (Char Koay Teow, Laksa, Hokkien Mee) to desserts (Ais Kacang, Cendul), the list goes on. Today, we will be talking about this particular 40-year-old Apom stall located along Jalan Dato Keramat, known as Apom Telur Tradisional.

One Of The Last Few Claypot Apom In Penang

Along the bustling Jalan Dato Keramat that we know of with endless cars on the two-way traffic, look a little closer and you will see a humble pushcart by the roadside. Firstly, to get the place right,  spot the signboard that reads Apom Telur Tradisional. Next, you will see the perfectly stacked clay pots. That is how you identify Apom Telur Tradisional or, Apom Dato Keramat, a name fondly recognized by locals.

Having been at the exact same spot for 40 years, Uncle Guna insists on using his traditional method for every single piece of Apom. That is by spreading the freshly made batter evenly on the clay pot and cooking them over a charcoal fire.

While you’re here, try out the Apom Telur Cheese + Butter + Susu Pekat as it is the best-selling item here. Apom with egg, cheese, butter, and condensed milk may sound like its a mouthful but it’s a rather exquisite combination. It’s savoury, sweet, and milky, yum.

Alternatively, if you go by the saying simple is always the best, by all means, try out the Apom Telur Biasa. Or feel free to add either cheese or condensed milk to it. You can get a piece of this fluffy on the inside yet slightly crispy on the outside Apom ranging from RM1-RM4.50.
