Vanishing Singaporean Hand-made Sausages - RT

Delicious sliced pork sausage, deep-fried tofu and meat roll with chilli and sweet gooey dip

A prominent businessman brought me to this hawker stall for an afternoon snack after a conference. This stall is famous for its hand-made Hokkien ngoh hiang (5-spice meat roll), liver rolls, egg lard cakes and my favourite pork sausage.

This pork sausage is one traditional Chinese food that is hard to find in urban Singapore. It is too tedious to make. Using lean pork marinated using their secret family recipe, the pork sausage here is tender and super delicious. They even have the special sweet and not so pink gooey dip!

Hip Mr Teo Ho Soon and his uberlicious pork sausage! :D

Owner Mr Teo Ho Soon (age 52) is the 3rd generation in this family business. His wife and son help out at the stall. They have been selling ngoh hiang using his family recipe, which had been passed down from his grandfather, for almost a century.

Mr Teo starts preparation at 4 am daily. As the snacks are hand-made the traditional way and cooked from generations-old recipes, they require too much work and time to make. As a result, no one is interested in continuing the business. It could disappear one day. What a pity.

These are the variety of snacks sold at Mr Teo's stall. Ingredients are fresh. Prices are reasonable. Expect to wait as he has many orders. :)

Do remember to try their fried chicken wings too. :)
