Popiah

I like to eat the traditional style popiah (spring roll). Popiah (薄饼 - BáoBǐng in Mandarin) means thin (Báo) biscuit/pastry (Bǐng) which refers to the thin wrapper skin used to wrap the fillings. I don't like to eat those with lots of deep fried crispy fillings inside them.

One popiah roll costs MYR 2 and I often request for no sauce and no chilli so the popiah will look pale as shown in the photo above.

Cross section showing the fillings: jicama, lettuce, egg, onions, tofu.
