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.

Chwee kueh or “water rice cake” is a type of steamed rice cake that is a popular and favourite breakfast dish or snack among many locals. It is made up of a mixture of rice flour and water placed in aluminium saucer cup-shaped mounds and steamed. When cooked, the bowl-like shaped rice cakes are then topped and served with fried diced preserved radish or ‘chye poh’ and chilli paste. The saltiness and sweetness of the ‘chye poh’ complements the subtle flavours of the rice cakes.
