Offal dishes are greatly consumed and most likeable by Cantonese people. By and large, offal is widely used in Cantonese culinary. From the most common braised trotter to the popular roasted chicken livers, Cantonese people are crowned the dialect group that uses offal in their cooking the most, and that includes soup cooking.
Pig pancreas (pork pancreas), Cantonese people [mainly in Hong Kong] called it, 豬橫脷 (pronounced as ‘Ju Wang Lay’ in Cantonese), and Chinese called it 豬胰 (pronounced as ‘Zhu Yi’ in Mandarin), is often used in soup dishes. Residing in Singapore, you may not be familiar with this offal as it is not commonly consumed here, but the pig pancreas is available at the butcher’s stalls in many wet markets. It’s not usually displayed openly in the front counter/ chiller though. Ask the butcher for it, and most of them would be able to offer.
