Ping Ji Bo Bia, Jalan Berseh Food Centre

One of our friends swore this was the "best popiah ever", so when you hear a comment like that, you just gotta try it out. Call it a case of curious george, i suppose. Because that friend was known to rave about absolute rubbish. As it turned out, the proclaimation wasn't hype at all. The popiah here is truly awesome. A real hidden gem in this oldie but goodie hawker centre.

The Popiah ($1.50) is satisfyingly crunchy and delicious. It's scalding hot so be careful when popping one of these babies into your mouth. Most popiahs are a little plain-ish because radish in general has a clean and clear taste, but this was just sinfully flavoursome. Copious lashings of peanut oil, plentiful lup cheong, a generous sprinkling of fried lard, and a good dollop of sweet black sauce set this flavourful roll apart from most other renowned popiah stalls. This actually got us hooked, and we've returned several times just for this.

The nondescript stall. There are a few "famous" stalls here but this one, without any endorsements or writeups, is a worthwhile try. You'd be remiss if you didn't.
