Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake has famous min jiang kueh in Queenstown
Most of us would be in bed in the early morning, fast asleep or aimlessly scrolling through our phones pretending to be asleep. Not the elderly couple who run Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake, though. Four days a week, you’ll find them at their stall in Tanglin Halt Food Centre, starting the day at midnight to prepare their famous min jiang kueh that fans are willing to queue for from 3am.

The elderly couple running the stall is actually second-generation hawkers, having inherited the stall from the auntie’s father, who first opened the business in 1965. He’d also passed down a yeast starter that the uncle uses every day to leaven the fresh batches of dough, giving their min jiang kueh a unique, mochi-like texture and taste unlike any other.
