Peranakan Culture & Rempah Udang Hands-On Live Stream

Categories: , , Tags: ,


How much do you know about Rempah Udang, a traditional Peranakan dessert made of glutinous rice with shrimps filling wrapped in banana leaves? What are the ingredients that goes into this delicious snack? Where did the beautiful blue tinge in the rice comes from?

Who are the Peranakans? Do you know that Laksa (spicy coconut broth with noodles), Ayam buah keluak(black candlenut with chicken) and Kueh Salat are all classic Peranakan dishes?

In this edition of our TeaGIF live stream, we are going to visit Kim Choo Kueh Chang , a beloved old-world establishment that specialises in delicious nonya rice dumplings. But instead of teaching you about rice dumplings,  we invite you to join us in a do-along session to wrap and assemble your very own Rempah Udang.

Through this hands-on experience and tour around the heritage shophouse, you will gain a glimpse into understanding the food & material culture of the Peranakans, satisfy your curiosity and learn all that you need to know about this delicious snack.
