The days of the 2018 Geylang Bazaar Ramadan may be gone, but I’m still going to share about Markozar’s Nutella Falls ($6.50) martabak manis because they actually have a permanent outlet in Teck Whye’s Rasa-Rasa coffee shop! The items are priced the same as when they were at the Geylang Ramadan Bazaar, which I found to be a nice surprise, given the slew of stalls there that ramped up the usual cost of their items to the point of being blatantly overpriced (by no means their fault though, they did need to make enough to cover the prohibitively high rental costs).

Anyway, I’m not ashamed to admit that this was the one thing that I kept coming back for. This open-faced apam balik (aka terang bulan) is the epitome of decadence – griddle pancake topped with shredded cheddar cheese, peanut bits, condensed milk and Nutella drizzles.

Pretty standard toppings, but what separates Markozar’s from the rest that I’ve tried was how satisfying and addictive each bite was. It manages to be a mouthful, but possessed the amount of softness that was enough to allow it to disintegrate easily in the mouth. This was hardly the case with three other renditions I’ve tried, all of which had a texture that was of a disconcerting, chunky amalgamation of rubber and cold fudge.

This is certainly your go-to if you’re feeling in the mood to indulge in something sweet. For those who lament about their diet being ruined after swallowing 0.0000008g of air however, it’s obviously best to avoid this. 🌚 (7.5/10)
