Sio Bak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa – 烧肉菠萝莎莎酱塔科

We visited Huat Huat Land at Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre this Chinese New Year to behold their life sized pineapples, beautifully illustrated murals and gigantic mahjong tiles. We were then inspired to create a recipe using leftover ingredients from Chinese New Year like pineapples, Sio bak and bak kwa!

Here’s a simple recipe that you can make with your leftover ingredients that tastes amazing! The combination of pineapples and Sio bak is just heavenly as there is a balance of sweet, savoury and tart. The taco shells also add a nice crunch to the texture together with the fried shallots.

Do check out the Huat Huat Land exhibit, going on until the 31st of March 2020

Address: Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, 1 Straits Boulevard, Singapore 018906 Opening Hours: 9am – 11pm, daily (including Public Holidays)
