Bunga Raya Popiah, Melaka…moreish pork lard-laden popiah

I was surprised and curious simultaneously when I drove past a monster queue braving the blazing afternoon sun while whizzing down Jalan Bunga Raya. Lo and behold, it was a stall selling Asian burritos – soft skinned spring roll – popiah.

Like all good popiahs, the ones here are packed with generous combination of eggs, bean sprouts, turnips, bean curds, peanuts, crispy and the main ingredient -fragrant pork lards. Every bite is essentially a wonderful mix of flavours and textures — chewy skin, crunchy pork lard together with a sweet sauce and spicy chilli sauce. Simply delicious and moreish.

Monster queue or not…I’ll be back. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
