China Street Fritters – Traditional Handmade Ngoh Hiang!
Traditional handmade ngoh hiang is a rare find these days. Most of the stalls that sell ngoh hiang have modified the original recipes, and are using machines to churn out these treats. Hence, it is difficult to find authentic and delicious ngoh hiang. However, if you look a little harder, you can actually find a few hawker stalls that are still working their magic the old-fashioned way.
China Street Fritters have been serving serve authentic Hokkien-style ngoh hiang (meat roll), and other delicious fried snacks such as guan chang (pink Hokkien sausage), egg slices and liver rolls, for more than 60 years. The owners follow and preserve time-tested recipes which have been passed down through generations.
I have never tried guan chang before today. But since it’s one of the signature snacks and a crowd-favourite, I had to try it. The Guan Chang ($2) had quite an interesting texture — firm and soft at the same time. Have it with some bee hoon($0.70) and chilli!
The crispy Ngoh Hiang ($0.80) was my favourite. After a quick dip in the starchy sweet sauce and watery chilli sauce, the ngoh hiang was perfect. This is a must-order when you’re here!
The tasty and crisp Liver Roll ($0.90) was fragrant and had that distinct metallic taste of liver. The Egg Slices ($0.80), on the other hand, could use a little more seasoning.
The deep-fried fritters were, surprisingly, not too oily. If you love ngoh hiang, you have to pay China Street Fritters a visit. There are only seven items on the menu, but you don’t need an extensive menu to keep the crowd coming back. You just need to make sure that the items that you’re serving taste good, and China Street Fritters does just that.
