Soon Kueh is a popular Teochew snack that can be found in most hawker centres. It was originally made with bamboo shoots, Chinese turnip, dried Chinese mushrooms and dried shrimps for the “umami”. To simplify the dish, we decided to leave out bamboo shoots.
Ahhhh Popiah, the local oriental burrito. A delicacy for all palates, this is one well loved dish by both locals and foreign friends visiting. what’s great about Popiah is that it provide different texture and flavours in a single bite, from the crunch from the peanuts and the fried pork skin (or other fired fritters) to the fresh and crispy vegetables matches really well with the sweet flour sauce and spicy sambal.
