Hae piah ji or prawn cracker has always been one of my favourite snacks since childhood. So, I was quite excited when Elsie Yap shared about a little pop up stall in Johor Jaya Seroja selling these beautiful fried prawn and chive crackers.

Swee (beautiful) right?

The pop up stall owned by the Ng family operates from inside the premises of DM Glass & Aluminium Enterprise at the junction of Jalan Seroja 39 and 37.

The prawn crackers are pre-fried and are freshly crisped by frying a second time when there are orders.

Once crisped to a golden brown, the prawns are rested briefly for it to cool and to let residual oil drip.

The prawn cracker cools very quickly and I can hold it in my hand. They are not too greasy at all 😄

The golden brown prawn cracker is crisp and thin.

My favourite way of eating hae piah ji is to hold the whole round piece in my hand and bite it off bit by bit. But, today I opted to have it cut to bite size as I needed to keep my hands free for photo taking.

The prawn cracker is crispy. It tastes just mildly savoury sweet and the sweetness from the fresh small white prawns gives it another layer of natural sweetness.

Very nice.

I like their chili sauce too. It is freshly made with red chili pepper and garlic etc. I can smell the rather pungent garlic aroma. That's a good thing!

I also had a chive cracker which had to made and fried on the spot on order.

The chive cracker is delicious too. But, personally my preference is for the prawn cracker.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
