Flour that makes the difference

There are two types of pancakes Ah Dee able to make. Thick and thin types.

Brown sugar (thick version)
Brown sugar (Thick version)

Thick pancake gives you bold feeling, fullness and satisfied. I personally love brown sugar. Of course, brown sugar version is more expensive than white sugar version. Brown sugar version gives you a burning-sweet taste feeling. Probably I used the wrong term to describe. I have that unique taste feeling. White sugar never gives me that kind of sensation so far.

Thin version in the making
Thin & Crispy version

Same goes to thin crispy brown sugar version. Very crispy, just like eating snack for every bite you feel. A layer of crushed peanut and brown sugar on top - definitely cause you unable to stop biting as probably afternoon tea time snack. Thin version takes about 15 minutes to finalize, thus you must have patient if you wish to order.

For those who wish to order in mass - such as more than 10, please call Ah Dee to pre-order one or two days before. He suggests this because he does not wish to make you stand there for 1-2 hours to wait. Kindly take note.
