Greenies in the greyish stuff.

Many of you from overseas might not seen this. This is a local delicacy. A Teochew food. (Teochew is a clan).

I think its something that needs an acquired taste.

It's called Ku Chai Kueh. "Ku Chai" is garlic chives. Kueh can be tranlasted as Cake, or Tapas in Spanish.

So you can call this it's Asian Chives Tapas. Try it next time you come to Singapore.

You should. it taste good!

The dumpling skin is soft and made of glutinous flour. chewy!

Maybe you might in some chinese restaurants in Paris.

Yeah, some people pour so so so much sweet sauce and the chilli sauce on it.

Memang sedap. I ingat ada yang halal kat KL.

You love ku chai too! Not everyone does. They rugi. hehe..

Way to go! Try it.

Ooo.. you like dumplings too :-)

Health Nut,
Don't you think so, some people i know just detest the smell of ku chai. hehe..
