How about trying something different during the circuit breaker? Hakka cuisine is not something commonly available. In fact, there are not many restaurants or stalls selling them in Singapore. I would recommend Pang's Hakka Delicacies if you are keen to try some authentic and nostalgic flavours of Hakka cuisine. Pang's Hakka Delicacies is a pet project of Chef Pang from Antoinette to share the unique heritage cuisine and preserve the tradition. It is only available for takeaway and delivery.
Hakka Mugwort Kueh
I have never tried Hakka Mugwort Kueh until the recent order. The mugwort has a soft mochi-like skin texture filled with white radish, salted turnip, sweet turnip, carrots, minced pork, garlic, dried shrimps, mushrooms and shallots. The greenish skin comes from the mugwort, a herb widely used in Chinese medicine which is also known as wormwood.
Hakka Mee Tai Mak, Abacus Seeds
Other delectable selections include the Hakka Mee Tai Mak and Traditional Abacus Seeds. The Hakka Mee Tai Mak is stir-fried in pork lard with minced pork, Chinese mushroom, salted radish, chives, carrots, deep-fried beancurd and sprinkled with fried lard and dried sole fish powder.
Customers will be more familiar with the Traditional Abacus Seeds. It is not too soft, still retaining a delightful bite. To bring out the flavours, it is cooked with premium dried shrimps, dried cuttlefish, leek, garlic, black fungus, dried mushrooms, Chinese celery and fresh minced pork.
Hakka Pang's Lei Cha
For Lei Cha fans, you will enjoy Chef Pang's version. Served separately with their Lei Cha paste which consists of a mixture of mugwort, Thai basil, coriander, peanuts, mint leaves and sesame seeds.
To eat, mix the paste with hot water and pour into the rice. Do note that Hakka Pang's Lei Cha only comes with brown rice. There is a minimum order for Lei Cha too. Kindly check their Facebook for more information.
