Richard, maybe you could call them and ask directly, oh and Welcome to Chef Talk, I hope that you will visit all of us often
Could be a variant of Roti, but that's usually a spiderweb pancake sort of thing. You could re-purpose banh xeo to this pretty easily.
A little nosing around on the internet turns up a couple of Malaysian restaurants in the US that serve dishes--seafood or chicken and vegetables-- in a deep fried edible bowl made of taro. Taro is a root which is also called yam on Malaysian cuisine websites. I was not able to find a Malaysian word for the edible bowl or a recipe.
I grew up in Malaysia. Kuan beat me to it. Indeed, the bowl you had was probably a yam pot.
phatch, the video which you linked to is called [i]appam[/i] in Malaysia. It is an Indian snack made from fermented rice. It is delicious, but it will dissolve if you try to put a curry in it :)
