November 23, 2017 Be first to comment

Kueh Pie Tee – a popular Peranakan dish where a crispy tart shell is filled with vegetables and other healthy ingredients (I mean, aren’t eggs and beancurd pretty healthy?).

Tom Yum Goong

Tom yum soup is possibly the most popular Thai dish, and also one of the most well-loved.
