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.

Mee Goreng is a fried noodle dish that is commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore with each of them done in their own special way that gives them their unique tastes. The Singapore version of this dish uses yellow noodles that is fried with garlic, onions, green chillis, diced tomatoes, chilli paste, bean sprouts, Chinese cabbage, egg, potatoes and minced mutton. This flavourful and spicy dish is then served with a side serving of sliced cucumber and ketchup. The entire taste of the dish can be further enhanced by the addition of a ‘mata lembu’ or bull’s eye egg placed on top, whereby the runny yolk is mixed and eaten together with the noodles.

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.

Because of its ease in preparation, it can be found at most stalls, namely those that sell chicken rice, Zhi-Char or claypot dishes. This fuss-free dish is prepared by serving steamed or blanched Chinese brocolli/kale or “kai-lan” drizzled with a mix of sesame oil, oyster and soy sauce and garnished with fried shallots and garlic.

Claypot chicken rice as the name implies is typically rice cooked with marinated chicken (usually Chinese wine) over a certain period of time in a claypot. 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.

Laksa is a Peranakan cuisine that has been derived from the influence and combination of the ethnic Chinese and Malay cuisines. This dish is a spicy and creamy coconut based curry that is usually eaten with thin white vermicelli (rice noodles) or “chor been hoon” as the main ingredient. The curry would be made up of a good mix of thick and creamy spicy concoction comprising lemongrass, shrimp paste, fish based soup stock and coconut milk. This is then mixed together with fried bean curd pieces, slices of fish cake, bean sprouts, shrimp and cockles, and garnished with chopped coriander. For that extra oomph, this dish is often commonly served with a spoonful of sambal chilli paste .

This is a comfort food that strikes the heart of many people due to the fact that it is commonly cooked at home. This stew-like dish is easy to make through using very simple ingredients like chicken parts, sesame oil, ginger, dark and light soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine, oyster sauce and spring onion as a garnish. These ingredients are all cooked and simmered together in a claypot for a period of time until the aroma of ginger and sesame oil emits.
