Mini Sausage in Pancake - Just Two Baht!

Short Note: I've spent most of my weekend recuperating from a really successful Christmas dinner my baby and I hosted on Friday night AND screening though hundreds of photos carefully and putting them all together.

I never knew photo editing for studio shots can be so tiring. Urgh.



While in Hat Yai (yes we're still talking about it), Wendy and I stumbled upon a stall that was selling really... interesting snacks.

I don't remember what it's called, but it's some sort of local snacks made of cocktail sausage wrapped in pancakes with various sauces, mince meat and a whole quail egg.

The price of these ranged from 2 baht to 5 baht each, depending on the ingredients (with or without sausage) and size.

We saw some school girls crowding around waiting patiently for their ever cute pancake to be cooked by this Thai old lady, who took her time making sure her food was perfect in every way (yes she was slow).

But the food was smelling so good from a mile away and looked so tantalising,

We decided to join in the queue to order... well.. ONE.

Frankly we just finished lunch and were still pretty stuffed, being small eaters, we opted for just one piece, just to try.

I really wasn't sure what sauces she put in. Was that custard I saw she spread on those pancakes?!

Ermmm....


The old lady then rolled them up into mini rolls and placed them one by one into paper bags, which she carefully passed to the young girl with, I swear, the most enthusiastic face on her face.

Finally, it was our turn.

well, technically it was Wendy's turn. Since she was the one who wanted to order it.


We had one big one, the 5 baht with the sausage in and all, instead of the small one that cost 2 baht. Splish splash of sauces and done!

I took a bite, and damn...

That's the best snack roll I have ever had for so long I couldn't even remember the last time I had a roll snack.

RM0.50.

What the heck can I buy with 50 cents in Malaysia? Seriously.
