This week, our Makan Kaki Lee Chin Sin wants to highlight a Hokkien favourite and give a nod to his Hokkien mother, whose guidance has most certainly influenced his taste for Chinese comfort food. And when it comes to Hokkien food, Popiah ranks high on Chin Sin’s list. He has a weakness for the hands-on kind that you build yourself – that is all part of the fun and you can calibrate each delicious vegetable-stuffed roll exactly to your personal taste. The tender vegetables, the crunchy toppings, the sweet sauce and a little kick from garlic & chilli all combine to create a portable pack of taste & texture! In his opinion, nothing beats the D-I-Y Popiah spread at Good Chance in the Bukit Merah area.
For Chin Sin, Good Chance has the best vegetables because the Yam Bean (Bangkuang/沙葛) is cooked to perfection in a stock that is rich and has real depth of flavour. It’s so good, you can eat it on it’s own, sans Popiah skin & condiments! But part of the charm of Popiah is making it to your specifications and Chin Sin likes lots of bang kwang and lots of sweet sauce. But however you like your Popiah, Good Chance gives you a delicious do-it-yourself product that’s perfect for parties and groups.
