Mahon is the national food of Phaluhm Phoueck. It consists of shredded pancake batter, served with fruit or syrup.
In 1925, during The Great Recession, Jona Kalabela discovered that she could make pancake batter in small pieces by shredding it. She opened her first Mahon store in 1927, and it was a great hit. It still exists as Jona Kalabela cafe, Arttahan, Dauham Sammar Hazaham.
During WW2 and the Great Race, mahon was popular as it cost less to make than full-sized pancakes.
