This & That Including What Ails

CM’s Food Porn #14

on January 13, 2018

Nghor Hiang Prawn Crackers is an ala carte choice of assorted meats or fritters that the consumer would pick off by piece per choice over a well laid tray at a hawker stall. (*street food concept but at a hawker center?

CM took a photo of what he picked for his lunch. 

He is adventourous and compared to me, I hardly seek out such foods.

From top, going clockwise, I will decribed what CM selected for his lunch.

2 types of chilli sauces; one more vinegary whilst other is more of a sambal chilli paste, and the light pinkish sauce is a sweet sauce.

The first meat in pink is Chinese sausage, followed by mock char siew meat.

The dark brown meat is Nghor Hiang made of prawn and meat filling cut in slices.

The wafer crumbly flan is the infamous prawn cracker or we say Hay Piah.

After his meal, he showed me some antiquated authentic chinese sauces and condiments for cooking.

Being a Cantonese, CM believes in going to Chinatown market where it is the only location that stock these.

Below is dried fish maw that is a perfect accompaniment for clear broth type of soups.

Below are the home made sauces sold in plastic tubs.

Below are jars of fermented beancurd that goes well with rice porridge. Stirred into the watery porridge it is salty and a bit spicy with the taste of the fermented beancurd. This is really an old treat that existed during my grandparents’ time especially when in those days, food was scarce.

Country of origin I suspect is from China (Shanghai) and Hong Kong SAR.

  1. I both love and hate the food porn posts – love them because they are awesome, hate them because they make me want to eat immediately (and I don’t have this sort of tasty food!).
