Chinese Herbal Soup

Si Shen Tang (Si Shen Tang), is an excellent example of traditional Chinese medicine’s emphasis on food as medicine (Shiliao). This tonic helps strengthen and preserve body warmth and vitality.

Bak Kut Teh

Bak Kut Teh is an umami-rich soup made with pork meat and Chinese herbs that is immensely popular throughout Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

A traditional Chinese pork ribs dish includes pork ribs, bamboo sugar, salt and peppercorns; garlic cloves, tofu puffs and shiitake mushrooms may also be added for extra flavour.

Oyster Omelette

Oyster Omelette is a beloved Taiwanese dish and an essential staple at many hawker stalls, consisting of an egg-based wrapper filled with oysters and other ingredients such as green onions.

Fried in pork lard, chicken wings are typically enjoyed with a delicious sauce for additional flavor.

To create this dish, a batter is created using sweet potato flour (starch) and rice flour, then placed into a pan to cook until translucent with crisp edges.
