Miraculously Delicious
I had the popiah from Qi Ji few days back and although it wasn't the first time I'd tried it, I was still blown away by the taste of it. I didn't quite use to like popiah when I was much younger but I started really digging it since last December. I can't remember what made me fall in love with this Singaporean snack but I started taking it for breakfast every other day when I'm out with my mum in the morning.

I've tried really bland ones and some had skins that were too soggy. But this one from Qi Ji is really good, I like the texture and also, the Auntie was really generous with the sweet sauce. A popiah has to have enough of the sweet gravy to taste good otherwise it'd be pretty bland. Furthermore, the skin can't turn soggy after adding all the vegetables as it might create a rubberised texture that's really not nice to chew on. All in all, I'm really pleased with the popiah! But I'm still dying to try those from Old Long House Popiah, Glory and Kway Guan Huat. I've always heard many fascinating stories about them and one day, I must discover the magic in them myself. Nevertheless, this Qi Ji popiah is still on the top of my Popiah List.
