Ju Hu Char

Still can't forget eating nervously with then PM Dr M (1981 to 2003) watching over us. He was a regular there and his picture was hanging on the wall as an endorsement or reminder of sorts. Such vivid memories a benevolent dictator evokes.

One of the signature dishes there that captivated me then was Ju Hu Char. Pronounced Jew Hoo Char.

Chui Ker, Chwee Kueh or Woon Chai Koh

Chui Ker (Hokkien) or Woon Chai Koh (in Cantonese) is rice flour cake steamed in metal cups or bowls. The rice pudding is then topped up with 'Chai Por'.

The toppings of Chai Por is preserved and fried radish (lobak) chopped into bits with sesame oil and soy sauce added. Chili sauce is optional.

It is takeaway or street food that should be eaten on the wax paper it comes wrapped in.

The exact recipe varies. Some use shallots or turnip, some add dried shrimps (heh bi) while others soak the toppings in a special oil concoction.
