粽子- Dumpling

Postby daisyt » Mon Jun 07, 2010 3:14 pm

I love the Amoy market 粽子 but must pre-order. I am also very tempting to try those hotels 粽子. Any good recommendation from hotels or any good 粽子? Both 五香咸肉粽 和 娘惹粽?

TIA :D

I didn't realise this festival until I saw the rice dumpling leaves in NTUC.
Any recommendations for a reasonably priced 五香咸肉粽?
TIA.

Yes, the Amoy Street dumplings are very nice, but find them too small. I also like Eastern dumplings. Haven't tried any hotel dumplings cos I prefer the traditional ones rather than those with funky fillings.

Unlike Mooncake, 粽子 is available throughout the year. So how many people here die die must have the 粽子 during this festival?

I'm one of those people who eat 粽子 only around this time of the year, lol! It's all that subliminal messaging when I see them hanging around.

In fact, I was told by the 粽子 sellers themselves that quality of 粽子 is compromised during the Festival Month due to mass production to meet demands, so if possible, avoid eating 粽子 during the Festive Season. Eat it on other days, unless one needs them as offerings, then that is a different story altogether.

I usually avoid eating them during the festival. Expensive and not the usual standard.

For me, I make my own prior to the Festival, at the first sign of the 粽子 related stuff being put on sale, cheaper, fresher and most important of all, cleaner where the leaves are concerned. The water that is used to soak the leaves can still be very very dirty despite 3 changes of water! :shock: But I doubt those 粽子 sellers would bother to wash the leaves as clean as we do at home! :|
