Old Aunty Takes Over Late Husband’s 30-Year RM0.50 Apom Stall At Chulia St Penang

Sometimes, when we get through a busy day at work, or in school, there’s this insurmountable craving for a quick snack. Something that we can just pop into our mouth and is energy providing enough to get us through the rest of the day. If you’re indeed looking for such a snack, then lucky for you because we just spotted a real good snack spot right here in Georgetown, Penang.

If Penang is a street food haven, then Chulia Street can be said as the street food paradise. Of course, when it comes to Chulia Street, it’s everyone’s go-to hawker spot, especially for dinner. We’re often spoiled for choice here as there’s Curry Mee, Wantan Mee, and more. But if you frequent Chulia Street often enough, you’ll also be well aware of this humble stall selling Apom.

Apom is essentially an Indian traditional food made with simple ingredients such as sugar, egg, coconut, milk, and flour. Simple yet we can never get enough of them. The Chulia Street Apom is helmed by an elderly aunty who has been in the business for over 30 years. Frequent patronisers of this Apom stall will know that it used to be handled by the pair of husband and wife. And now, it’s solely aunty alone taking over her late husband’s stall to pass on his legacy.

Each piece of Apom here is merely RM 0.50 and the aunty can make up to 5 pieces at one go. If you’re walking around Chulia Street at night, this stall needs no name to be recognised. The snaking queue of hungry customers seeking a bite of this snack is distinct enough from afar.

While waiting in line, it’s not all plain and dull because everyone actually enjoyed watching how aunty prepares these delicious bite-sized snacks.  Upon the first bite, you can tell it’s a piece of snack made with love; it’s so soft yet crispy you can’t help but to want more of them.

So if you ever drop by Chulia Street for a bowl of Curry Mee or a plate of Wan Tan Mee, don’t forget you can get some sweet dessert to fill up your second tummy. Also, a friendly tip: be patient while waiting because aunty manages the entire stall solely on her own. (Patience is virtue, guys) Till next time!
