Jeremy and I had dim sum for lunch at a popular street side hawker stall along Smith Street in the Chinatown district last Sunday. The dim sum were all freshly made on site and prepared only upon ordering. I particularly enjoyed the steamed glutinous rice roll with shrimp (on the extreme right), drenched with soy sauce and sesame oil. Yummy! I'm salivating now that I am thinking about it. Boy, it was a good and satisfying lunch!
Here are two more close-up shots of the Hong Kong style egg custard tart and BBQ pork pastry.
During Chinese New Year, temporary road side stalls would be set up to sell goodies. One of the more traditional goods were preserved (waxed) meats and sausages. These were often used to enhance flavours to many Chinese dishes. Below is a snapshot of a particular waxed sausage stall, which I just wanted to share.
I love being in Singapore - there is just so much diversity and one can not be possibly bored with different cultural festivals spread through out the year. Right now, let's relish in the Chinese New Year spirit!
