Teochew Pork Trotter Jelly

Let’s relive throwbacks this coming Chinese New Year with our Teochew Pork Trotter Jelly recipe. Though not commonly known in Singapore, this cold, Teochew dish is actually a classic within Singapore’s hawker culture. Made from umami-packed pork broth, tender meat and collagen-rich skin that solidifies into jelly when left refrigerated – it’s an interesting appetiser …

Xiao Long Bao

Starting from humble origins in China, these delicate pockets of soup are no stranger to the Asian food scene. Piping hot soup mixed in with rich flavours from the pork waiting to burst through that thin silky dough skin – it’s simply irresistible!

Hakka Steamed Pork Belly with Taro

Originating from Hakka, this traditional chinese delicacy may seem to take a bit of time to prepare but it’s easier than you think. The simple trick to achieving that gorgeous bubbly crisp layer is to prick lots of holes in the skin without puncturing the meat itself. Slather on dark soy sauce and submerge it in hot oil, watch as the delicate layer of skin slowly puff up into that perfect golden brown coating.

Soon Kueh

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 It was originally made with bamboo shoots, Chinese turnip, dried Chinese mushrooms and dried shrimps for the “umami”.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.

Chicken Curry Puff

Curry Puff is one of our favourite local snack, tasty potato chicken curry filling wrap in buttery pasty! Definitely makes you want to eat one after another!
For the filling we used a mixture of diced potatoes and chicken thigh, you can also use pork which taste great as well. The trick for a buttery pasty is to grate cold butter onto the flour when making the dough, this gives the pasty a really melt in you mouth crumbly texture.

Mui Choy Kau Yoke

A true Hakka gem that has withstood the test of time. One can never get sick of. The classic combination of savoury Mui Choy braised with fatty pork belly slices.
The only tedious process is washing grit off the mui choy. Once you’ve done that, the rest of the steps are pretty simple! During the braising process the fragrance of the pork fats combine with the unique fragrance of mui choy that made us salivate.

Lor Mee

Thick starchy gravy . This is the general idea that people have of Lor Mee. Yes it’s all true, and it’s too damn shiok! If you’re a fan of braised dishes with that dark gooey sauce, you’ll love this Lor Mee recipe.

Bak Chang

Bak Chang (also known as ??) is a dish that many of us here love. Though there are plenty of popular stalls in Singapore, its origins are from China. Bak Chang is most popularly eaten during the Duan Wu Festival, which happens this weekend.

Chorizo Ravioli

We made the choice of using simple tomato sauce to compliment the chorizo sausage that we got for this – which was rather delish. If you are to try, BE VERY DELICATE with the ravioli, and that when cooking them the do not break, so as to keep the meaty taste within these happy pouches. (We broke a couple and those were rather diluted, sadly)
