“Singapore’s century-old Soy bean products manufacturer, Kwong Cheong Thye, which sells not just the popular seasoning sauce and condiment, they offer one of the tastiest Yu Sheng packages, too!”
I know I will feel guilty if I don’t share this great condiment/ sauces shop with you for getting good Chinese New Year dry food goodness.
This shop was recommended and I was brought there by one of my colleagues recently, great for getting CNY food stuff. One of the most popular CNY goodies there has to be the pre-packed Yu Sheng ingredients, of course!
I couldn’t wait to try it after getting the first packet of this pre-packed Yu Sheng ingredients. So, we had our very first Lo-Hei last Sunday.
It was indeed scrumptious. The crunched crackers that tops to the Yu Sheng, was extensively crunchy and aromatic!
Thus, I went back to the shop again to get more Yu Sheng packs and bottled sauces as well as some other dry goods for usual cooking use, too.
Coming back to their Yu Sheng ingredients… These are sold in various forms. They offer pre-pack, gift pack, and even individual pack in small and large quantities. What we have gotten are those pre-pack ones serving easily 10 – 12 person. Cost: S$17.90.
This is the prepackage and it considers a value-pack as the portion in each pack is so generous that surely enough for more than 10pax. If you like the super-crunched crackers a lot, go for this Yu Sheng pack as they offer 3 packets of crackers in each pack.
If you have already gotten your own Yu Sheng ingredients, consider getting the Yu Sheng sauce in bottle which costs $3/bottle. Its pleasant sweet and zesty flavour is the main key to elevating the taste of the Yu Sheng dish.
Actually, I am not sure if you are still able to get the Yu Sheng pack as it was selling fast since last Tuesday. However, if you are interest to go there, here’s the location:
