Shrimp Dumplings & Wonton Soup

Shrimp Dumpling and Wonton Soup is well known in the Chinese cuisine and is often served as a complimentary side dish accompanying the main order of a bowl of dry noodles. It can also be ordered as a main soup dish on its own as well. The dumplings or wontons are made from a dough skin consisting of a mix of egg, flour and water and filled with stuffings of shrimp or minced pork. The fillings are marinated with salt, spices, garlic, spring onions and other ingredients such as mushrooms and salted fish, which are then boiled in a soup and served piping hot with some leafy vegetables.

This dish is available in a choice of fried or plain fish head pieces or fish slices/chunks and served in a soup made out of fish stock derived from cooking fish bones for many hours.

Frog Legs with Spring Onions & Ginger in Claypot is a delicacy of Cantonese origin but this version is particularly Singaporean. Chopped pieces of frog legs and meat are cooked in a claypot mixed with dark and sweet soya based sauces, ginger and topped with generous amount of spring onions and served bubbling hot. Due to the rich and salty flavours of the gravy, this dish is best eaten with a serving of plain porridge so that you would enjoy the overall balance of taste and texture.

Fried Carrot Cake or ‘Chye Tow Kway’ is a very common breakfast staple found in many neighbourhood hawker centres. It is a favourite among many locals as most of us have grown up eating it. It is made up of steamed rice cakes that are broken into little cubes fried with eggs, garlic, sweet sauce (for the black version), preserved radish, soya sauce, chilli paste and served with toppings of chopped spring onions. There are two versions available: white or black, and the former (white) version would provide a more subtle flavour of eggs and preserved radish without the caramelized sweetness that comes from frying it together with the sweet sauce.

Other ingredients like oyster and dark soy sauce, Chinese sausage, vegetables, mushrooms and salted fish are also added that would enhance the overall taste. They are all cooked together over a charcoal flame for some time, thereby allowing the dish to develop a distinct flavour with a very slight burnt and smokey fragrance.

Wanton Noodles or “Meat Dumpling Noodles” has no particular style of preparation as it all depends on the dialect group of the stall owner that is selling them. However, this noodle dish is usually served with barbequed pork slices or “Char Siew“, lard pieces, special sauces including chilli and garnished with leafy vegetables that is usually “Cai-Xin” (Mustard Leaves) or “Kai-Lan” (Chinese Kale). As it is usually eaten dry with chilli, it also comes with a side serving of bite-sized pork dumplings in a hot broth. Sometimes, the stalls even serve it with another kind of dumplings called “shui jiao” that consists of a mix of pork, prawns and sometimes chicken with mushroom or even fried wantons instead.
