Remember the Heritage Food Trail that I told you about? Well, I had been reading quite a fair bit on other’s dialect group food cuisine of late.
I recalled when I was young, my Hainanese neighbour always make this little squarish kueh kueh filled with savory fillings. The dough is chewy and the filling is just delicious. When we shifted out, we lost contact with them.
Or when I was even younger, another Hainanese neighbour prepared this pig ear dish during Lunar New Year and it wasn’t the ang pow that I was looking forward to, it was this cold dish. Oh it was so good that even till to date, I still miss it.
Unfortunately, the old lady had since passed on and I seriously doubt her kids know how. Perhaps I have to get my mom to ask them but I heard that the main cook for this family now is suffering from some illness and she has since “retired” from her job.
I married a Teochew but my mother in law knows nothing except steam fish. She cooks Malay cuisine much better than Chinese.
Come to think about it, I don’t really know what is true blue Cantonese dish or dessert. I will have to stop checking out on others and do more research on this one.
In the meantime, I leave you with Fried Sweet Potato Rings which my son is crazy about. Guess what, it is the sugar coating that he was interested! LOLz.
Well this is nice to go with a cup of tea for our afternoon snack.
Now are you looking forward to this weekend? I am, because hubby has taken Monday off and it will be a long weekend for me. yea!
