This is a classic dish in Singapore and Ben’s favourite order at Tze Char stalls. It is simply, yummy and quite easy to make. This is the perfect dish to make when you are tired or out of ideas on what to cook. You can easily replace the meat items to your favourite stuff like ham, bacon, luncheon meat or even seafood! I chose to use crab bites and vegetaian char siew as that is what Ben likes, the authentic flavour!
